We’re proud to be currently supporting these awesome charities:
Our 2018 Charities
We are a charity developed from the last wish of one very special nine year old boy just twelve days before he died of cancer in 2003. Sebastian’s aim was simple, yet vital for those facing the loss of a beloved child; he wanted to create a private place where lifelong memories could be made, even if that life was to be cruelly cut short.
We are passionate about providing inspirational activities and opportunities for children and young people with high functioning autism to develop their social, communication and independent living skills, gain confidence and increase their chances of full integration into society.
ELHAP is a magical and unique charity, providing adventure play opportunities to disabled and disadvantaged children, young people and adults. Since 1976, we have supported tens of thousands of disabled children. Each year, ELHAP attracts over 8,000 visits from across North East London and Essex.
The Freddie Farmer Foundation was formed in February 2011 to raise £250,000 to set up a specialised physiotherapy centre in south-east London for children and young people with cerebral palsy and serious mobility problems. The inspiration behind it all is 9-year-old Freddie Farmer who was born at 28 weeks with cerebral palsy, weighing just 2lb 12oz.
The Sparkle Appeal is a local charity dedicated to providing a purpose built centre and facilities helping the 1200 children with complex disabilities in the South Gwent area to have treatment, care, information, leisure facilities and consultations all under one roof. Through the generosity of our supporters and donors we are delighted to welcome the first children and families from April 2011.
Stepping Stones DS provides a wide range of support, training, information, social events and accessible activities for children and young people with Down Syndrome, their families and the professionals involved in their care. All of our activities and services are designed to empower, building knowledge and confidence, and supporting our members and their families in reaching their potential, whilst providing the opportunity to build lasting friendships.
Florrie’s Children’s Team is a team of qualified nurses and carers who offer support to children with life-limiting illnesses, in their own home. This enables the family to have space and time for themselves in the ongoing role of caring for their sick child at home. The care is determined according to the individual circumstances and may vary from occasional to regular visits.
St Elizabeth’s is one of only two national centres offering a range of services to all age groups with learning difficulties. We provide holistic care, support, health and education services in a safe environment for very vulnerable people, recognising them to be unique individuals who should be valued, supported and enabled to maximise their personal potential in all areas of life.
