Sixth Form Charities 2016-17
Our Sixth Form Committee are fund-raising for the following charities over the next academic year:
Yorkshire Air Ambulance
A lifesaving rapid response emergency service to 5 million people across Yorkshire, providing swift medical intervention through air ambulance crews, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance has a major impact on a patient’s chance of survival and subsequent quality of life. Yorkshire has a vast topography that not only includes remote, rural and densely populated areas but also includes major motorways.
Funding scientists, doctors and nurses to help beat cancer sooner.
Their goal is to provide a retreat in the North West of England countryside to relieve the distress of families and their close friends who have suffered the bereavement of a child or have a child suffering from a life limiting or life threatening illness.
Toilet Twinning funds the work of Tearfund partners globally to provide people in the poorest communities on the planet with a decent toilet, clean water and all the information they need to stay healthy. It’s the key to helping whole communities break free of the poverty trap.
