Cuba Solidarity Campaign Update

Fundraising events in London, Manchester and Birmingham
in 2023 to raise money for the Viva la Educación appeal

In just a couple of months two 40ft shipping containers packed full of educational aid will be sent to Cuba to support children and teachers in Cuban schools. The appeal has already raised almost £70,000. The CSC is now asking supporters to join in a final push for fundraising activities and donations to help us reach the £100,000 target. If you are in or near London, Manchester or Birmingham, you can support the appeal by attending one of these social events, or you can donate on the links below.
