Charley Paige Trust

Following the loss of Charley, to leukaemia, in July 2004, her family felt that they wanted to do something to repay the kindness, care and support that they had received from all of the hospitals and organisations who had helped and cared for her throughout her illness.
The Charley Paige Trust provides grants to help with things that enhances the child’s life and/or makes life easier for the whole family
– things that are not always obvious to those who have not experienced the extreme heartache and practical implications
of having a very sick child and things that can help tremendously in difficult times. Find out more about us at
