Charity of the Year partnerships
This year, we are pleased to be supporting The Connection at St Martin’s, Over the Wall and Restore NYC.
The Connection at St Martin’s (Registered charity number: 1075361)
The Connection at St Martin’s is a registered homelessness charity in central London, located next to Trafalgar Square, which helps thousands of homeless people every year to move away from, and stay off the streets of London. They are much more than a soup kitchen and provide a range of specialist services, all under one roof, which help people address their homelessness and make the necessary steps away from the streets so they can re-enter society and live ‘normally’ again.

They provide residential camps for seriously ill children, alongside camps specially for their siblings.
Restore NYC (EIN number: 20-2390142)
Restore NYC was founded in 2009 in response to estimates that 17,000 foreign nationals were trafficked into the U.S. each year with no agency in New York City, an entry point and hub for human trafficking, to serve these individuals. Initially, Restore began providing advocacy and counselling services to trafficked women arrested on prostitution-related charges in the nation’s first Human Trafficking Intervention Courts, located in New York City. When housing services emerged as a primary need, in 2010 Restore launched the first safehome in the nation specializing in serving foreign-national survivors of trafficking. In 2016, Restore kicked off its Economic Empowerment program in response to survivors’ number one request, “Help me find safe work.”
Redburn is also a proud Platinum Sponsor of the October Club. For over 29 years, since their first event in 1988, The October Club has been transforming good causes. Each year the Club identifies a UK-based charity with a project or projects in several UK regions which could be transformational to the Charity concerned, and organises a fundraising dinner in October. In total more than £10m has been raised and in recent years the average raised per dinner has been over £500k. In 2017, the October Club supported The Multiple Sclerosis Trust.
