In 2015, Robbie Keville, aged 9, started his own charity - 'robbiesrally'. Family, friends and others have since organised many events to support the charity.
Importantly, 100% of any funds that you donate go direct to the charity. The events themselves are privately funded with contributions, if we can get them, from organisations wishing to help. For example, for robbiesrow, the kayak has been donated by Artemis Investment Management LLP. Very many thanks to Artemis.
'robbiesrehabilitation' is to be based at Southampton Hospital and will benefit children who are recovering from brain tumours by providing specialist staff to care for them as they struggle to rebuild their lives. Building on a fund of nearly £175,000, the charity is now poised to employ their first therapist for the next three years. By donating to the charity, we will provide a unique home-visiting and outpatient service to approximately 25 children every year. Our current target of another £100,000 will pay for a second, more senior, therapist for 3 years.
Many events have already been achieved - see www.robbiesrally.com and www.facebook.com/robbiesrally.
