Charity Organization Near Oxfam Goodge Street
Anglo-Latin American Foundation (ALAF) www.alaf.co.ukDistance: 1.5 miTourist Information 2 Belgarve Square London,
ALAF is an umbrella organisation composed of bilateral societies in Britain associated with countries of Latin America, and specialist charitable organisations. The representatives of the bilateral societies form the Board of Directors. The Foundation is a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity.
ALAF`s main activity is the planning and organisation of Fairs, at which the societies and charitable organisations sell
regional food and beverages, as well as crafts, at their respective stands. The societies which make up ALAF work closely with their respective Embassies, who may take over running a stand when there is no society able to participate.
All the proceeds made at the Fair by each stand, are retained by the stand-holders for the benefit of their chosen and previously approved children’s charities.
The costs of mounting a Fair are borne entirely by ALAF and met from the sale of entrance tickets, the Raffle, and stands run by a group of British ladies who also donate hand-made products to be sold at the event. ALAF also seeks other sources of income, such as contributors from sponsors and fees from stand-holders not associated with the bilateral societies but who have some connection with Latin America.
The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) is a registered charity that strives to promote and progress civil engineering. We believe that civil engineers are 'at the heart of society, delivering sustainable development through knowledge, skills and professional expertise.'
With this in mind, we are a qualifying body, a centre for the exchange of specialist knowledge, and a provider of resources to encourage innovation and excellence in the profession worldwide.
The ICE was founded in 1818 by a small group of idealistic young men. We were granted a royal charter in 1828 where we declared that our aim was to 'foster and promote the art and science of civil engineering'. That is still our aim today. Now the number of members has grown, and the ICE represents nearly 80,000 members worldwide.

The Shane Project was founded in April 2002 by Norma McFarlane whose two sons were diagnosed with MS. It is named after her eldest son Shane who sadly passed away in 2003. Shane was finally diagnosed in 1993 after three long years of numerous hospital visits and investigation of his symptoms.
Based on Norma's experience following Shane’s illness, the lack of available support and the isolation, prejudice and stigmatisation that she and her family suffered, prompted to set up The Shane Project with the primary aim being to raise awareness, reduce isolation and help improve the quality of life and independence especially for African/ Caribbean and Ethnic Minority People living with Multiple Sclerosis, their families and their carers.

St. James's Park is a London Underground station near St. James's Park in the City of Westminster, central London. It is served by the District and Circle lines and is between Victoria and Westminster stations. It is in Travelcard Zone 1.The station building is incorporated into 55 Broadway, the headquarters of London Underground Ltd and has entrances from Broadway, Petty France and Palmer Street. The station is close to New Scotland Yard and several government offices. The station is not wheelchair accessible.HistoryThe station was opened on 24 December 1868 by the District Railway (DR, now the District line) when the company opened the first section of its line between South Kensington and Westminster stations. The DR connected to the Metropolitan Railway (MR, later the Metropolitan line) at South Kensington and, although the two companies were rivals, each company operated its trains over the other's tracks in a joint service known as the "Inner Circle".
The Palace of Westminster is the meeting place of the House of Commons and the House of Lords, the two houses of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. Commonly known as the Houses of Parliament after its occupants, it is also known as the 'heart of British politics'. The Palace lies on the north bank of the River Thames in the City of Westminster, in central London.Its name, which derives from the neighbouring Westminster Abbey, may refer to either of two structures: the Old Palace, a medieval building complex destroyed by fire in 1834, and its replacement, the New Palace that stands today. The palace is owned by the monarch in right of the Crown and, for ceremonial purposes, retains its original status as a royal residence. The building is managed by BNP Paribas Real Estate, which reports to the Speaker of the House of Commons and the Lord Speaker.The first royal palace was built on the site in the 11th century, and Westminster was the primary residence of the Kings of England until fire destroyed much of the complex in 1512. After that, it served as the home of the Parliament of England, which had been meeting there since the 13th century, and also as the seat of the Royal Courts of Justice, based in and around Westminster Hall. In 1834, an even greater fire ravaged the heavily rebuilt Houses of Parliament, and the only significant medieval structures to survive were Westminster Hall, the Cloisters of St Stephen's, the Chapel of St Mary Undercroft, and the Jewel Tower.
