Welcome to the website of Deal Save the Children. The Deal Branch was formed in 2011 from a group of volunteers. We aim to highlight awareness of the work of Save the Children, whilst at the same time raising valuable funds for the charity. All the profits from our events to to Save the Children to help deprived children both here in the UK and all around the world. We would be delighted to hear from you if you were able to spare any time to help us with our fund raising events. Please see our web page for details of forthcoming events.
We are extremely grateful to everyone in the area who has supported Save the Children this year. In particular we would like to thank:-

Commissioner of Kent Scouts for volunteering the local scouts to support the charity and also for singing on one occasion for the charity.
The Deal Savoyards
For carol singing in the High Street, an event that was enjoyed by all.
The Landmark Centre
For allowing Save the Children to use their facilities for the carol singing.
The Walmer Court Shop
For providing superb raffle prizes each month for the monthly quizzes as well as everyone else locally who has done so.
The Strand Pharmacy
For being so enthusiastic in their support of Christmas Jumper Day by organising a raffle as well as wearing their jumpers for all of December.
We are presently celebrating the centenary of the founding of Save the Children. It was founded in the aftermath of the First World War and our founder, Eglantyne Jebb spoke up for the starving children trapped behind British blockades. She soon combined campaigning with raising public funds to spend aid -and that dual approach continues to Iive on in our work today. Save the Children, now an international independent children’s charity continues the commitment to secure the rights of the world’s most deprived and marginalised children as we have done for the last 100 years.
It is estimated that over 350 million children, one in six worldwide are living in conflict zones. Many of these children are deprived of sufficient food, medial care, schooling or protection. Save the Children world’s tirelessly to reach and support them. Many too are suffering things, no child ever should, from sexual violence and exploitation, much of which is never reported. We hope through our efforts we will be able to spotlight these injustices in the public’s eye and drive change through local engagement.
Heartfelt thanks to all our supporters who have helped us to further these aims.’
We are willing to speak to local clubs, schools or groups free of charge about the work of Save the Children.
