Surrey-based charity halow project is celebrating the achievements of the people aged 16+ with learning disabilities they support and encouraging the local community to share their support in ‘Love halow’ month, throughout February.

halow project is a vibrant charity that works with more than 200 people with a learning disability on their journey to independence. halow supports them to build relationships and socialise, to feel part of their community, to gain skills to find suitable employment, and the charity assists them with living independently.

During ‘Love halow’ month, the people halow supports will be sharing what they love about their charity. halow project is also inviting the local community to share in the celebration. Come along and have a chat with the team and people supported by the charity at one of their bucket collections taking place throughout February. On Tuesday 14 (9.30am-1.30pm) and Thursday 16 February (1.30pm-5.30pm) they will be greeting shoppers in Tesco, Guildford. Then, on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 February (9.30am-1.30pm), you can drop in a donation at The Friary, Guildford. halow would like to thank Tesco and The Friary for welcoming the charity to collect donations that can help to strengthen the work they do and open new opportunities for the people they support.
