Over the past twenty five years Hyde Fundraisers have supported a vast array of charities with their fundraising from local hospitals to well established national organisations. They have included Children's Heart Unit Fund, Royal British Legion, Christies Manchester, Born Free Foundation, Donkey Sanctuary, Rainbow Trust and STEPS. Here are some of the others we have helped and we hope that you can continue offering your support to these good causes...

BBC CHILDREN IN NEED - The BBC's annual telethon takes place each November. Every single penny donated finds its way to a charity or project that works to improve the lives of children and young people throughout the UK. None of this money is used for other costs, such as advertising, paper, postage or the salaries of people working for BBC Children in Need.

LYMPHOEDEMA SUPPORT NETWORK - Their overall purpose is to provide advice and support for people with Lymphoedema, and advance awareness in those at risk of developing the condition, particularly after surgery or radiotherapy. The LSN also works to raise awareness of Lymphoedema within the medical profession and health authorities.

THE CALIBRE LIBRARY - Calibre is a registered charity, set up in 1974 to provide a postal lending library service to people who cannot read ordinary print books because of a sight problem or other physical disability. The service is free to members - they do not charge a subscription - so they rely on help to maintain and expand the service.

NSPCC - The NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) is the UK's leading charity specialising in child protection and the prevention of cruelty to children. They have been directly involved in protecting children and campaigning on their behalf since 1884.

GUIDE DOGS - Guide Dogs relies entirely on the generosity of the public for income, as they receive no government or statutory funding. The income helps them ensure they can continue to provide their services for more blind and partially-sighted people throughout the UK. Their work provides mobility and freedom to blind and partially-sighted people.

WHIZZ-KIDZ - Whizz-Kidz changes disabled children's lives - literally overnight. By providing them with customised mobility equipment, training and advice, they actually give them something much more important. They give them the independence to live a life of freedom.

NATIONAL CHILDRENS HOME- NCH one of the UK's leading children's charities, helping children achieve their full potential. Through their services they support some of the UK's most vulnerable and excluded children and young people. The children, young people and families they work with face difficulties such as poverty, disability and abuse. They are now known as The Children's Charity.

RSPCA - Since its humble beginning in 1824 - as the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals - the RSPCA has worked tirelessly to promote kindness and prevent cruelty to animals. The RSPCA is a registered charity that receives no lottery or state aid. Its 82 million annual running costs are funded exclusively by voluntary donations and legacies.

OVACOME - Ovacome is a UK-wide support network providing information and support for everyone affected by ovarian cancer. This site is designed for women with ovarian cancer, their families, friends and carers, and health professionals.

MACMILLAN CANCER RELIEF - More than one million people in the UK today have had a cancer diagnosis, and more than one in three will be diagnosed at some time in their life. From providing specialist health care and information to practical and emotional support, Macmillan are changing the lives of people living with cancer today.

WILLOW WOOD HOSPICE - The Willow Wood Hospice Team is committed to patients requiring palliative care, during the changing phases of their illness. They will encourage patients, regardless of race, colour, religion, age, sex or sexuality to maintain their identity, dignity and independence whilst also supporting their family, friends and carers.

 

MESSAGE FROM ELISABETH SLADEN
