Meningitis Research Foundation
Meningitis Research Foundation is a leading international charity that brings together expertise to defeat meningitis and septicaemia wherever it exists.
This charity funds vital research, including running awareness campaigns, training health professionals and providing support and information.
Railway Children provides protection for thousands of children across the UK, India and East Africa who have run away or been forced to leave home due to poverty, abuse, violence and neglect.
Reaching a child as soon as possible is crucial to protecting children on the streets before an abuser can get to them, and before they become entrenched in street life.
Frances Taylor Foundation
The Frances Taylor Foundation provides social care and support, working mainly for people with learning disabilities, and also older people. They challenge people to strive for greater independence, and for richer interaction with the people and the world around them.
Royal British Legion
The Royal British Legion provides lifelong support to serving and ex-serving members of the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force, veterans and their families.
