The pandemic has negatively affected our incoming funds.
All charities have been affected but the smaller charities,
like Charley Paige Trust, have seen their income drop by 50%.
This has meant we have only been able to help a small amount of families
during this time.
We are hoping that the lifting of the restrictions will now mean we can fund raise,
and others will kindly get back on board and raise funds for us again through their
own events. Sponsored Runs, walks, cycling. Businesses supporting us. Raffles.
Coffee mornings and other personal fundraisers. Collection boxes in your home or
business. It does not matter how much you raise as all amounts are gratefully received.
Throughout the pandemic children have sadly continued to be diagnosed with serious and
life threatening illnesses. Families do need support. Parents have to stop working.
There are additional expenses when you have a child in hospital. Families are split up.
Their is much turmoil.
So, please support us if you can and help to make a difference to a family facing difficult times.
Thank you from Team Charley.
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.
