Charity information

Strawberry Hill Overseas and Community Concern (SHOCC)

SHOCC is seeking to provide funding for a new primary school for severely disadvantaged refugee children at Marigat, Kenya. With each classroom likely to cost £10,000, it is estimated that a total of around £100,000 will be needed over the next five years to complete the school. £15,000 of this funding has been obtained and the charity is looking for matched funding.

SHOCC also works with a major HIV/AIDS hospice in Guatemala and with youth projects in and around Twickenham.
