Season of celebration

From 1st June until 30th September, we will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of CRY. During this four-month period, we want to recognise the hard work and commitment from our project partners over the last three decades to help vulnerable children reach their full potential. Whilst we are heartbroken by how many disadvantaged children around the world are in unjust circumstances, we are grateful that through your support we can help build a better future for many of these children in 30 nations. We will be using this period to showcase how your support has helped to change lives and also to fundraise money to not only continue this work but to expand it.

Together, we believe that we can fundraise at least £30 000 to help us support more children across the world. See the bottom of the page for more details regarding how you can play your part!

Our vision for this campaign is: 30 years - 30 nations - £30 000!

#CRY30 Gala

As part of our season of celebration, we will be hosting a fundraising gala evening at St Mary's Stadium, home to Southampton Football Club. We have booked the Saints' most prestigious room - the Halo suite. The evening will be an opportunity to showcase some of the work done by CRY over the last three decades, and dream about the future whilst also enjoying live gospel music. The event will also be an opportunity to come together to help build the future of CRY by taking part in fundraising activities which will include an auction with the opportunity to win a weekend away in the Loire Valley of France, signed football memorabilia and tickets for several entertainment events.

The gala will be held on 24th September 2022 from 6.30 pm-9.30 pm. Our guests will be offered a complimentary drink on arrival as well as some canapes. There will be a bar open for the entire duration of the event should you wish to purchase more drinks. This will definitely be an evening to remember...however tickets are limited - book ASAP by clicking here

Our gala will be featuring some exciting guests including Rebekah Walker - a popular broadcaster and Tottenham Hot Spurs Club presenter - as well as a live gospel band led by several musicians from Newday 2022 Festival.

We are looking forward to hosting you at St Mary's Stadium
