Canning House and the Anglo-Argentine Society support Inglés para mi Futuro

Canning House is pleased to join the Anglo-Argentine Society in support of the charity Inglés para mi Futuro.

Based in the city of Rosario, in the Province of Santa Fe, Argentina, Inglés para mi Futuro is a charitable initiative that provides free English lessons to children from low-income families in the area.

The Anglo Argentine Society has supported Ingles para mi Futuro since 2018. This year, the Society set a fundraising target of £1,600 to cover the salaries of two teachers for one year. Canning House has donated £1,000 to the fundraiser. Thanks to the generosity of the AAS’ members and friends, they have now reached their target, achieved in time for the start of the academic year.
