2020 & 2021 have been tough years for many charities, and whilst the expedition is not a sponsored event a number of the team are using the expedition to raise awareness for a couple of serious illnesses and the charities that are working so hard to battle them.
Prostate Cancer UK has a simple ambition – to stop men dying from prostate cancer. Through shifting the science over the next 10 years to focus on radical improvements in diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and support, they aim to stop prostate cancer being a killer.
Alzheimer’s Society is transforming the landscape of dementia forever. Until the day we find a cure, we will create a society where those affected by dementia are supported and accepted, able to live in their community without fear or prejudice.
Chestnut Tree House is a children’s charity providing hospice care and community support for children and young people with life-shortening conditions. Your help enables families to spend time together. Precious moments that give a lifetime of memories.
The Charity has three main objectives: We aim to help children with registered Special Educational Needs (SEN) and disabilities to develop and become the best they can in their lives. To give the families some respite time so that they can focus on activities that are very difficult normally. To employ and train Play Assistants aged from 16 years and upwards in paediatric care and development.
At ASNP we currently run 20 play scheme sessions per year for children from Adur who are aged 5-15 and have SEN needs. We offer 1:1 care for up to 20 children in each session, which are designed to grow children’s self-confidence, sense of self-esteem, and communication skills.
