Careif successful fundraising event

Careif (The Centre for Applied Research and Evaluation International Foundation) held its first fundraising event of 2013. The event chosen was a wine tasting evening of affordable Bordeaux wines ably demonstrated by Sandy Leckie who is a member of the Association of Wine Educators, and enjoyed by 23 participants from inside and outside of Queen Mary. All the money raised will go to the Charity on projects that will improve the health and wellbeing of young people. A total of £430 was raised and it was deemed a great success. Details of the next event will be publicised shortly.

Thanks must also go to Dallas Allen of the Wolfson Institute who donated her time and made some beautiful handmade cards to buy. – they sold out within minutes. The money that was raised will also go to the Charity.

Careif is an international charity based in London, under the umbrella of the Centre for Psychiatry and founded by Professor Kam Bhui and Dr Albert Persaud. The main aim of Careif is to share knowledge about mental health in order to improve the wellbeing of young people. This includes how to live healthily and ensure that working practices and services are suited to different cultures and societies across the world.
