The Maria Watt Birmingham Foundation for Childhood & Teenage Leukaemia Registered Charity No 1118733 is a small, family run charity dedicated to raising awareness of Leukaemia and Other Cancers in Children and Young People.

With the support of a number of families whose children have been diagnosed with cancer, we have set up the Be Child Cancer Aware campaign.  This campaign aims to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of the various cancers that affect children and young people. 

We believe that by raising awareness, earlier diagnosis can be achieved which, in turn will save more lives in the future.

There are in the region of 4,000 children and teenagers diagnosed with Cancer each year of which 1,500 will not survive. Please visit the BCCA website www.bechildcanceraware.org to become more aware.

All proceeds from the sale of Charitecards will be collected by The Maria Watt Birmingham Foundation for Childhood & Teenage Leukaemia and held for the Be Child Cancer Aware campaign.  We aim to raise enough funds to produce and distribute an information card detailing the signs and symptoms to all families of school age children.

BRACE - Alzheimer's Research support internationally recognised, groundbreaking, research into Alzheimer's Disease and other forms of dementia.  Dementia afflicts an alarmingly high proportion of people, most commonly in old age.  It currently affects over 800,000 people in the UK and this figure may double by the year 2040.  Funding for dementia research is still very low compared with many other forms of medical research, such as cancer.  However, the urgency is increasing.  There is now a realistic hope that one day we may be able to cure dementia.  For more information about BRACE see our website www.alzheimers-brace.org or email us at admin@alzheimers-brace.org.  Thank you for your support.

In the UK, 16,000 people are diagnosed with  a brain tumour each year with more children and people under the age of 40 dying of a brain tumour than any other cancer.  Tragically five year survival remains at 14% - yet brain tumour research is woefully under-funded!

Brain Tumour Research represents the united campaign voice of the Brain Tumour Research group of charities.  Established in 2008, the charity was launched specifically to raise substantial funds for brain tumour research and operates as a separate entity to the member charities.  Its mission is to raise at least £7 million per annum in order to  accelerate progress significantly in UK brain tumour research, to make a clinical difference and to improve the outcomes for brain tumour patients.

Whilst continuing their separate work and remaining true to their own objectives, member charities are committed to work together to achieve a common goal to raise funds for research into discovering the causes, advancing treatments and ultimately finding a cure.

Help us to fund the fight!

Established over 30 years ago, we are the only UK charity solely dedicated to supporting people with tinnitus. We offer a range of free support services which aim to help people take control of their condition and lead a better quality of life.

Tinnitus is a constant sound heard by those with the condition that has no external source or known cause. 10% of the UK population have tinnitus and 470,000 UK sufferers report severe effects on their quality of life such as depression, isolation, anxiety, sleep deprivation and stress. In the most extreme cases the severity of tinnitus symptoms have led to suicide. 

We receive no government funds and need to raise £250,000 each year from donations to ensure our free helpline, information leaflets and interactive website continue to be available for people needing help.

Please give generously to help us continue to support 80,000 people each year.

Your support is very much appreciated and we promise to use your donation to offer the best possible impact.

Cherry Trees provides home from home respite care for children and young people with severe learning and physical disabilities. We recognise that these children are best looked after at home but, because of their very special needs, they require very special care, often 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

It’s not surprising then that from time to time both they and their families need a break.  Cherry Trees is that special place, providing professional care in a safe and loving environment, where every child is valued for who they are. It is a community that values them and enables them to spend time with friends whilst their families have a much-needed break.

Founded in 1980 by a group of parents and doctors, Cherry Trees has become a lifeline for the families of more than 100 children and young people who are regularly cared for here – for a few hours, a weekend or even a couple of weeks.

Crossroads Caring Scotland is a national charity operating in Scotland since 1978. There are 42 services located throughout Scotland.

We offer home-based respite for carers and personal care to individuals. We aim to meet the needs of people with all disabilities. We adapt our services and develop the skills of our staff to meet the specific need of every client, young to old, deprived to affluent.

Some of our clients require longer term commitment and care e.g. an individual with a disability living independently at home. Others depend on our services for shorter periods e.g. when recovering from an illness.

Our fully trained staff manage an extensive range of challenges. An elderly client might require daily visits to help with bathing and feeding, or a carer might need support when coping with the terminal condition of a loved one.

We reach approximately 8,500 carers, with support extending to family members.

For over 40 years Heart Research UK has led the way in funding cutting-edge research into heart disease – the UK’s biggest killer.

Heart disease can strike anyone; some are born with it, others develop it later in life. In fact, 700 people in the UK suffer a heart attack every day - that’s one every two minutes.

We have funded many groundbreaking projects and paid for six of the eight first successful UK heart transplants. Many things that we now take for granted, such as heart valves, angioplasty and more recently, artificial heart pumps, would not have been developed when they were, without our help. 

We continue to fund innovative research all over the UK including a unique Artificial Heart Muscle project aimed at developing a man-made device to help patients with heart failure. Our funding of such pioneering projects highlights the importance of research and development in the battle to beat heart disease.

What we would prefer, is for there to be no heart problems in the first place so we also give grants to community based projects that encourage people to make the right lifestyle choices for a healthier heart.

IDE-UK is a UK based charity working to eradicate world poverty. Our Mission is to create income and livelihood opportunities for the rural poor. We are dedicated to ending poverty in the developing world not through handouts, but by helping farming families in Latin and Central America, Asia and Africa access the tools and knowledge they need to increase their income. We believe that giveaways are not a sustainable outcome to ending poverty, but that creating increased stable incomes is.

Make-A-Wish Foundation® UK has a very simple objective – to grant magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions. The charity was founded in the UK in 1986 and since then has granted over 8,000 wishes.

There are over 20,000 children in the UK living with a life-threatening illness. We believe that every one of them deserves to experience the magic of a Make-A-Wish wish – and they are truly magical.

A small and dedicated team of professional wishgranters works alongside hundreds of volunteers to turn our children’s wishes into reality. Whether a wish is to be a princess or a train driver for the day, own the latest TV or computer equipment, meet a favourite celebrity or just enjoy some special time away from home with their family, a wish come true brings so much to a child’s life and provides memories that last a lifetime for the whole family.

This year, around 1,000 children will turn to Make-A-Wish to have their special wish granted – we need to raise over £6 million per year to continue granting these magical wishes.

Make-A-Wish receives no government funding or lottery grants, relying on the generous donations of the public and that’s why, for our charity, every donation really counts.

North London Hospice helps people to live with a potentially life-limiting illness providing emotional, spiritual and practical support to them, their families, friends and carers.

Our vision is that everyone living in the London Boroughs of Barnet, Enfield and Haringey should receive the specialist palliative care (including practical, spiritual and emotional support) that they require to minimise their symptoms, maximise their quality of life and to live and die with dignity in the surroundings of their choice.

We also want patients' relatives, friends and carers to have the support they need to cope with any difficulties arising from the illness and to recover and rebuild their lives afterwards.

There is no charge for any of these services. The Hospice is a registered charity and we receive only a small proportion of our funding from the NHS. We rely on donations and legacies to help raise the £6 million every year that is needed for our care to continue.

Pancreatic Cancer Action (PCA) has been set up by a very rare survivor of the disease who's mission it is to improve survival rates by getting more people diagnosed in time for surgery. Only 3% of pancreatic cancer patients will live beyond 5 years after diagnosis. This dreadful statistic has been the same for over 40 years. Why? Because sadly only 10% of patients are diagnosed in time for surgery - currently our only potential for a cure. Pancreatic cancer has been underfunded for decades. Despite being predicted to be the 4th biggest cancer killer in the UK by the end of 2011, pancreatic cancer receives less than 1% of total research funding. It is vital that we raise awareness of this dreadful disease so more will go to their doctors in time. PCA is working on public awareness campaigns to do just that. We want medical professionals to have their knowledge refreshed so they are better able to spot the disease sooner and manage treatment for patients better which is why we are working on providing them with free accredited training programmes. We are also looking into funding of research specifically into early diagnosis - for simple tests that can enable a faster diagnosis and save lives.
 PCA is staffed by volunteers - so none of our funds go on salaries. We rely completely on the generosity of our supporters and fundraisers to carry out our work. Please support us in our mission to "Change the Numbers" for pancreatic cancer.  Thank you.

Many refugees have been forced to leave families behind in order to seek asylum and have often been apart from their partners and children for significant periods of time.

The Refugee Welcome Trust provides assistance for refugees to allow them to establish their life in the UK.

Once granted refugee status the dependents of a refugee can be given permission to come and reside in the UK. For many refugees the process of getting their families to the UK can be long and problematic. One of the main obstacles facing people in this situation is the cost associated with their family's travel.

The Refugee Welcome Trust aims to provide grants for travel to the UK in order to allow refugees to be reunited with their families.

We believe that family reunion is one of the key issues facing refugees in the UK. Many have been separated from their families for years whilst seeking asylum, with limited contact. For families who have already been through a traumatic experience this period of separation can cause further distress and prevent refugees from being able to settle properly in the UK.

The cost of family reunion varies depending on the situation but can be around £2500

Desperate to be reunited with their families some refugees go to extreme lengths to raise the money for their family's travel including going without food and borrowing from anyone who'll lend it. Some are forced to bring family members over separately as they can afford it meaning children can be sent unaccompanied which can leave them vulnerable to trafficking and abuse.

Every donation will bring these families that little bit closer together.

The Julian Trust was founded in 1986 as a registered charity in order to set up an emergency Night Shelter for the homeless in Bristol, England.

At present we are able to offer up to fifteen beds for overnight accomodation in a large dormitory. These are quickly filled and sadly we often have to turn away would-be guests. We regularly provide over eighty hot meals each night that we are open. Other services are also available from time to time.

The Julian Trust was named after Julian of Norwich because her practical support for the poor was inspirational to us. She was a fourteenth century nun who dedicated her life to those in need in her home town.

Our principle, drawn from her teaching, is:

"To love a human being is to accept him as he is; if you wait until he is different you are only loving an idea."

This has led the Julian Trust to operate an 'open door' policy from the start for those who present themselves at the Night Shelter, with no questions asked and no forms to be filled in.

Mother Julian's example of individual caring has also inspired us to be a wholly voluntary organisation with no paid staff.

Around one in five young people in the UK are not in work, education or training. Youth unemployment costs the UK economy £10 million a day in lost productivity, while youth crime costs £1 billion every year. The Prince's Trust gives practical and financial support, developing key workplace skills such as confidence and motivation. We work with 13 to 30-year-olds who have struggled at school, have been in care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law. We have helped more than 650,000 young people since 1976 and aim to support more than 50,000 in 2012.

Recently, Fairbridge became part of The Prince's Trust. The valuable work that Fairbridge does continues as a Prince's Trust programme and has allowed the combined organisation to develop a more holistic approach to helping young people in the UK.

Using the mobile network in Africa to help save lives

The Virtual Doctor Project connects rural health clinics in Africa with volunteer doctors around the world via the local mobile broadband network. This enables our virtual doctors to offer free diagnostic and treatment advice, all using technology we in the developed world take for granted.

Your support can help us to install our system in more rural health centres in sub-Saharan Africa. Each system can make a difference to literally thousands of people in the local community, and help the clinic staff to offer much better primary care locally, avoiding the need for long journeys on foot or by bicycle to referral hospitals.

Our charity, Voice, is committed to improving the lives of children in need, in or leaving care. Children are taken into care because their parents, for whatever reason, can no longer look after them, which is awful for the child. Sometimes something terrible has already happened to them, such as abuse or neglect and sometimes their parents just aren\\'t able to look after them, perhaps because of ill health. 

The responsibility for the child\\'s care moves to the care system run by social services in each local authority, and this sytem can let a child down, time and time again.

Often the child has no where else to turn, so they call Voice on our 24 hour national free helpline, to find out what their rights are and to get the help and support they need.

Voice listens to the child and gives them the choices of things they are entitled to so that the child can choose their own pathways in life. They may not want to move from a happy foster home or they may want to move because they don\\'t feel safe. They may need to stay in education, but have no parents on hand to depend on to help them make that move. 

Voice advocates do not act on best interest as we believe the person who knows best about what they want from life, is the child themselves. Please donate to Voice, so that you can support our helpline open over Christmas and we can keep our promise that NO CHILD WILL BE TURNED AWAY. Have a fabulous Christmas from everyone here at Voice.

Since 1987 York Against Cancer has made a significant difference to the lives of people affected by cancer.  We raise money to help local people affected by cancer, providing funding for: Education Projects, Care Projects and Research Projects.

Over the years our achievements include:

Setting up the Jack Birch Unit at the University of York and funding the researchers there.

Funding Specialist Oncology Nurses at the Hospital, a specialist counseling service, a number of care posts and a DVD about bowel cancer.

We have helped train GP receptionists on how to handle bereavements and hard news. We have a family support worker who can visit families and offer advice. 

A very big achievement was our opening the Cancer Care Centre at York Hospital. Here we provide funding for staff and complimentary therapies for patients.

A popular service is our own minibus; we transport patients for radiotherapy treatment to St James hospital in Leeds.

One of our most recent achievements is the purchase of a holiday flat in Whitby where cancer patients and their families can stay free of charge when they need a much needed break.

We are also committed to education and regularly give talks to school pupils and students. To help spread the word about healthy living we have produced children’s sun hats, school education packs and even beer mats found in student bars giving advice on checking for cancers.

We are dedicated to what we do and we have achieved so much so far but we know we can do more and with your help we can!
