“I currently work for CDI and have personally seen the positive contribution this charity has made to the Croydon community; whose mission is to encourage young people and families to develop their full potential.

CDI provides a credible resource for the local community and with your support can help more young people overcome difficult situations and develop solutions that are best for them.

Local charities need our support in order for them to carry out the much needed work in our community.

Please support me in helping CDI continue important work by digging deep and giving whatever you can.” Trojan Gordon

Congratulations Kim!
