The last 12 months has negatively affected charities and especially the smaller charities like CPT. Four planned events had to be cancelled last year, and we have not been able to do very much fundraising
ourselves. We have however raised some funds via Smile Amazon and Easyfundraising. Where online purchase raises small donations based on the value of purchases.
We have also had one or two supporters who have managed to do sponsored activities in their homes. We are extremely grateful to those who have made donations, either regular monthly donations or random donations. One lovely supporter has been doing raffles for us over the past weeks and has raised a fab amount. Special thanks to Tiffany and her supporters.
We do not know what the next few months will bring, but we are hopeful that things will start to improve soon.
During the last 12 months, we have been able to support a few families, although not as many as we would normally. Around last October we were able to start donating our Smile Bags to children in hospital once again.
Please support us if you can and help us to make a real difference to families who have life-limited children.
When a child is diagnosed with a life limiting illness or a complex disability, their families can face much turmoil. At a time when they desperately want to focus on the needs of their child, many parents are faced with severe financial hardship as they reduce their working hours to care for their child. A desperate situation can quickly become unbearable.
We are a grant making trust providing funds for equipment and services from medical/educational/recreational equipment, to travel and parking costs for the many hospital visits that families have to make.
