At Crispin and Jeffery we value our ties to the community and have been fortunate enough to work with many inspiring charitable organisations. We have seen the wonderful things they have achieved and the many lives they have touched.
OzHarvest Food Drive
OzHarvest is Australia's leading food rescue organisation, collecting quality excess food and delivering it directly to more than 1300 charities supporting people in need across the country.
Crispin and Jeffery got involved by running a food drive with staff donating non-perishable items to make hampers to give to those families in need. We were able to put together six hampers that were picked up by the OzHarvest food van, just in time for Christmas 2020.
The Humpty Dumpty Foundation is a children's charity that, that for more than 25 years, has been purchasing essential and often life-saving medical equipment for sick and injured children in Paediatric Wards, Neonatal Units, Maternity and Emergency Departments in hospitals across Australia.
Twenty10 incorporating GLCS NSW is a community-based, non-profit, state-wide organisation, working with and supporting people of diverse genders, sexes and sexualities, their families and communities. They aim to be a beacon of strength and acceptance by supporting individuals to build resilience and achieve their potential and we strive to be known as a place of excellence in leadership, education and support services for young people and adults wherever they are.
The broader community in which we live is not always an accepting and inclusive one. Many members of the gay and lesbian community have experienced rejection from their families and peers, are often targets of homophobia and transphobia, are at high risk of homelessness, and this has impacted on their sense of self, their wellbeing and their mental health.
Therefore, they aim to create and nurture spaces where people feel and are safe, emotionally and physically. Twenty10 provides a wide range of support services across New South Wales for people of all ages, including specialised services for young people. Staff and volunteers deal with all enquiries in an understanding, supportive and confidential manner and most services are free.

Fairy Sparkle waves her wand over everyone she meets, improving the hospital experience for many patients, especially our children.
"My life's work is visiting the sickest patients, especially children, in our hospitals. I bring smiles to sad faces, lift spirits that are sagging, inspire those that need it, sit with those in the depths of despair and have held the hand of many 'passing'.
I dream of a special garden in every hospital to help support the well-being of hospital patients, family and friends. With a wand, bells and sparkles, I bring a smile and warm a heart then I am one very happy Fairy." - Fairy Sparkle
