James’ friend’s son, Daniel (13), was diagnosed with ALL Leukaemia which had entered his central nervous system which meant his body was shutting down. He was wrongly diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy and was given strong antibiotics which attacks the leukaemia causing significant internal bleeding to the lungs leading him to cardiac arrest and his heart failing.

Fortunately, Daniel was at the hospital and was revived. He is still undergoing treatment for his leukaemia and, whilst he’s lost his hair, is in good spirits and treatment is having a positive effect.

Nicola’s Dad unfortunately suffers from Parkinsons. Her nomination is to support the charity in their bid to fund research to find a cure and to change attitudes to the disease.

Disasters Emergency Committee

Following Neil’s suggestion of supporting a charity/cause to help those suffering the impact of the war in Ukraine, the Foundation also made the decision to donate £5,000 to the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal, set up by Disaster Emergency Committee.

The DEC brings together 15 leading UK aid charities to raise funds quickly and efficiently at times of crisis overseas. In these times of crisis, people in life-and-death situations need our help and the DEC’s mission is to save, protect and rebuild lives through effective humanitarian response.

Pooling its resources to work as one, it is pivotal in co-ordinating the UK public’s response to overseas disasters. In collaboration with its Rapid Response Network of national media and corporate partners, it raises the alarm to the UK public and sets up easy ways to donate.
