Here are a list of charities that Colin supports:
The ’45 Aid Society was set up as a charitable organisation in 1963. Its founders were a group of child Holocaust survivors, known as ‘The Boys’, who were brought to Great Britain after the end of the Second World War. They wanted to say thank you and to give back to the society that had welcomed them. The organisation also supports the survivors and their families as a social organisation but also in moments of need.
Over time, the running of the ’45 Aid Society has passed to the children of ‘The Boys’, often referred to as the second generation. The second generation are the custodians of the testimonies and life stories of ‘The Boys’. We keep their testimonies alive and make them relevant for future generations, through educational activities, community events and fundraising.
The third and fourth generations are increasingly involved in the work of the ’45 Aid Society.
The second generation is an active and vibrant community. They maintain regular contact, wherever they are in the world.
Creative Community for Peace (CCFP) is a non-profit entertainment industry organization comprised of prominent members of the entertainment community who have come together to promote the arts as a bridge to peace, to counter antisemitism within the entertainment industry, and to galvanize support against the cultural boycott of Israel.
We understand the power that music, film, and television has in bringing people together of all backgrounds and believe that the arts are crucial to help bridge cultural divides. We also believe in artists and their ability to affect lives and effect positive change around the world.
CCFP is an apolitical organization that strives to provide balance to the discourse regarding the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and encourage artists to travel to the region to experience it for themselves.
