Fundraising to support Launchpad

TARA’s commitment has always been to do something for ‘Our Community, Our Kids and The Needy’.

Besides supporting needy people through other charity organisations in India and UK, we thought of giving something back to the local community here in UK. During Sankranthi Celebrations 2015, we organized fundraising to a Reading-based charity organisation, LaunchPad (http://www.launchpadreading.org.uk/) who support the needy by providing shelter, education, training, skills development etc.. More information in their website.

Mr.Jason McMahon, Fundraising and Relationship Manager at Launchpad, appreciated TARA efforts to organize fundraising with the below note and a certificate.

Thanks for the kind donations received across the TARA Festival. It is really appreciated that you chose Launchpad to support, raising awareness is very key and just as important as the fundraising. We can only thank you for helping us to raise awareness to the work that we do here through to your members. The monies raised on your Just Giving page will honestly make a difference here and allow us to do and offer more to support one of our projects to help those that are homeless or at serious risk of homelessness.

Thanks for organising a wonderful family event - TARA Ugadi 2012 with sumptuous lunch. The telugu melodies have been sweet and it was great to see all people getting involded & dancing to the catchy tunes. Also Kudos to the performances on Skits, and special thanks to Surya Prakash for all the ideas and the great direction. I think we should be doing these more often.
