Every year we vote for a charity of the year to sponsor. In the past, we have sponsored charities such as Julia's House, Willow Foundation, Autism Wessex, Macmillan and many others. In 2017 we will be supporting The Isabel Baker Foundation.
The Isabel Baker Foundation: Isabel was just three weeks old when she was diagnosed with Infantile Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. She spent most of her life in hospital but sadly passed away on 12th August 2015 aged just 1 year old.
Since its inception, The Isabel Baker Foundation have worked to provide financial support to bereaved parents of children with cancer, in order to give them sufficient time to mourn before returning to work.
Giving bereaved parents a few extra weeks of financial security while they come to terms with their child’s death and adjust to their new situation can make a world of difference. No other charity does this.
