V takes on the London Marathon 2024

21st April 2024

One of our sporty trustees will be taking on the 26.2 mile challenge at the London Marathon. London is such an amazing experience and we wish her all the luck in getting to the finish line and enjoying the experience as best she can.

As always this massive event brings a phenomenal amount of fundraising for various charities and we are pleased our small charity is a part of it.

Good luck V

Steve’s 40th

6th July 2019

This July would have been Steve’s 40th birthday, which we are sure would be a huge event in New York and the UK.
As none of us are going to be able to celebrate his 40th with him we thought it would be a good idea to invite Steve’s relatives, friends, work colleagues, etc., to make a donation to the Foundation in his memory, on his 40th, as the first fund raising effort.
Whether its the price of a beer or flight to NY! Please donate as toast to Steve.
