We are a group of volunteers who have brought together young people in Rugby each Chrstmas, since 1991, to help people in the developing world.
Every year around the festive season, we have set up Rugby Christmas Cracker to expose young local people to opportunities they wouldn’t normally get at school or college. This includes learning radio broadcasting with Cracker Radio, catering, customer service, and retail with our Crackerteria and A la Carte services and the world of work in general. Everyone who works on the project volunteers their time to help out and fundraise for worthy causes which gets chosen by young people every year.
It’s through our initiatives, that we not only hope to teach young people new skills but highlight the harsh living conditions and poor quality of life experienced by some of the most deprived people across the world.
We’re still working on exactly what we can do for 2020, and how we can do it.
The plan is still to run all three of the main elements of Cracker – but they will all have to look different this year!
