Parklife – 5 Years of AMAZING Support
This year will mark the fifth year that the charity has had a presence at the Parklife festival. Over the years the support from those attending the festival has been simply AMAZING!
Over the past four years we have raised a staggering £83,000, for our very special families.
The money raised goes directly to those families that need it most. We use the money raised for a whole range of practical and emotional support for children and families who are going through some of the worst trauma in life.
We provide specific financial support to families of children who have or have-had a brain tumour, with special focus on those who also have post-surgery disabilities. This financial support can include help with the purchase of specialist equipment, home adaptations, post-treatment holidays, to assist in cases of financial hardship where parents have lost income due to being unable to work while caring for their sick child, and many other instances. Applications for assistance are considered on a case by case basis by our Trustee panel.
We also provide a counselling service which is available for as long as is needed in order to help our families work through their feeling and emotions at these very traumatic times.
All the money raised via Parklife and all the other fundraising activities we take part in is used for those that need it most and we are proud to say it really does make a huge difference.
