“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter”
Martin Luther King Jr
Over the last seventeen years we have donated to charities and causes and given our time and energy to Stand Up for those issues and injustices we see happening across the globe.
During 2017 we have donated to:
- Kyle’s charity – Heart UK when he ran the London Marathon
- Julia’s charity – St Christopher’s Hospice when she cycled from London to Paris
- Phil’s charity – Cancer Research – when he did the Burpee challenge for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity
- Rachel’s charity – Prostrate Cancer when she ran/walked 10km
- Crisis for the Homeless – donating for Christmas lunches for the homeless
As much as we have worked with schools over many years to reduce our costs to help them with budget shortages, never before have we seen the need the schools to crowd fund to raise cash for student resources and facilities.
As per 2016, we are continuing to give our time and money to the New Zealand charity – Stand Up for Moko – in New Zealand & stop child and domestic abuse.
We continue supporting the Stand up for Moko charity & Give a little – Justice for Moko charity after the death of Moko Rangitoheriri in New Zealand.
We do not sleep walk through life ignoring the challenges facing people in our world and we have never been afraid to take on issues, or causes or people who act in unfair, unjust, dishonourable or inappropriate ways toward other human beings.
We continue to support these charities:
- mental health programmes for children and adults
- Breast and Lung Cancer charities;
- the NSPCC in the UK;
- Anti-Racism charities and programs;
- the Heart Foundation UK; SENSE UK:
- Domestic Violence and Child Abuse
There are always people out there in need of help. When we donate money or give our time to help others who need it, we are working to make the world a better place for each person.
We thank our schools and teachers who like us, support charities and causes and stand up and say enough is enough. Together we can make a difference to people’s lives.
