Story

As the parents of Richard Mayne, we have been overwhelmed by the consoling sentiments and messages left by donors.  Our heartfelt thanks go out to you all.  We are pleased that the vulnerable children of Nepal, the chosen charity of Leeds RAG Society, will benefit from the generosity of so many.

Richard was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 8.  He controlled his diabetes with great skill and he was heavily supported by Camp Charnwood, run by the Leicestershire Parents' Group Summer Camp.  In more recent years, he became one of the Camp Leaders helping the younger children to look after their diabetes.  Richard's zest for life was encouraged and made possible by Camp Charnwood.  These camps, over the years, gave Richard, and many other young people with diabetes, the confidence to recognise that independent, international travel and adventure activities were as open to them as anyone.  It was that confidence which helped to get him to Everest Base Camp.

Kidasha is an incredibly worthwhile charity, and was important to Richard in the last few months of his life.  Richard lived with his diabetes for 12 years and we would be just as happy to see any future donations passed on to the following charity, which was also close to Richard's heart, and had a huge impact on his life for a number of years:

The charity is Leicestershire Parents' Group Diabetes UK and the Charity Number is 215199.
