This month the 500 Club committee chose CARA to receive our donation.
CARA (Centre for Action on Rape and Abuse) is a charity working with victims and survivors of sexual violence and child sexual abuse, providing independent, specialist support and promoting and representing their rights and needs.
The charity was founded in 1989 (formerly known as Colchester Rape Crisis Line) and has steadily grown over the years increasing its staff and reputation and extending the range of services they can provide for victims and survivors. It's service area has grown too and now supports people who live in Braintree, Chelmsford, Colchester, Maldon, Tendring and Uttlesford districts of Essex.
CARA is just about to move into a new counselling room, so our donation is well timed and will be spent on furnishing the room.
"A huge thank you to the P&P 500 Club for the donation, which will be used to help us support victims and survivors of sexual violence and child sexual abuse. We very much appreciate your support!" Helen Parr, Chief executive, CARA.
