The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
On 1st May 2018 Matt Auckland sadly lost his battle with cancer at just 40 years old. Matt was a huge advocate for the community and local charities, winning a Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
In Matt’s honour, and to help some of the organizations close to his heart, we are raising money in his memory. The organizations are:
PWSA UK - Matt’s nephew, Arthur, was born with a rare genetic condition called Parder-Willi Syndrome. PWSA UK is a national charity commited to working with those affected by Prader-Willi Syndrome with integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and clear leadership, with the ultimate ambition to cure the challenges of life with Prader-Willi Syndrome.
Enham Trust - Enham Trust is a disability charity that works with over 6,500 individuals each year, helping them have increased independence and choice in the cornerstone areas of their lives. Matt worked with Enham Trust to help create Enham Radio, a radio station where presenters, production staff etc are all Enham Trust service users.
Voice FM - Voice FM is a station local to Southampton, broadcasting from the city centre to a weekly audience of 80,000 listeners. They enable young people, students and other local people aspiring to learn about radio the opportunity to learn skills and showcase them on a massive platform. Matt was an integral part of creating Voice FM, and regularly hosted the Global House Party on Friday nights with friends and colleagues Mark Hill and Paul Ridney. Voice FM is soon to be relocating their studio, and Matt wanted to help make this happen.

The last time I saw Matt we worked together on the technical side of things for the Unity Annual Event. He was going through chemo and I was quite amazed how he continued. He was very dedicated :)
