You may wonder why I have chosen Leonard Cheshire as my charity? At the beginning of this adventure, I was trying to decide which of the thousands of charities to support. I have been incredibly lucky and neither myself or any friends have ever needed support from a charitable cause, so i had no personal preferances or experience. Instead I asked a good friend who dealt with many charities through work, and I asked who he would give his money to. Without a second's thought he said "Leonard Cheshire", the money they collect goes exactly where it should, to the thousands of people they support
Leonard Cheshire exists to change attitudes to disability and to serve disabled people around the world. It has been supporting disabled people for almost 60 years and is active in 55 countries. The charity directly supports over 21,000 disabled people in the UK.
Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor us: Leonard Cheshire will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.
