The Lord's Taverners

The Lord's Taverners is the UK's leading youth cricket and disability sports charity dedicated to giving disadvantaged and disabled young people a sporting chance. 

With sporting roots within cricket, The Lord’s Taverners also enjoys relationships with a wide-range of other sports including rugby, tennis, squash, basketball and boccia.

The charity enables young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and those with disabilities to enjoy sport. In addition to the young people they support, they measure their impact by the 'sporting chances' that they create.

Their latest ‘Impact Report’ highlights how they have invested £4.4 million into the new equipment, facilities, resources and cricket programmes in the UK in 2017. They have also experienced participant growth from 42 weekly coaching sessions delivered in 2014 to 1,097 in 2017, demonstrating how the funds raised are having a huge impact.

The Lord’s Taverners have made future commitments including but not limited to:

  • Providing another 35 specially adapted mini buses to SEN schools and organisations in 2018.
  • Continue to work with British Wheelchair Basketball over the next 12 months. 
  • For the first time, they will be working with Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby for the next two years.

St Ann's Hospice

St Ann’s Hospice cares for and helps around 3,000 patients and their families and carers every year who are affected by life-limiting illnesses. Delivering care that is special and unique to each individual person, free of charge.

Established in 1971, St Ann’s Hospice is now one of the oldest hospices in the country. Its aim is to raise £16,000 every day so their specialised staff can provide the highest quality care. St Ann’s Hospice provides care across three sites and in people’s own homes, working in partnership with acute hospitals, primary care trusts, community services and voluntary organisations. Approximately 40 percent of inpatients at St Ann’s Hospice return home after treatment. Many of their services are provided 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

St Ann’s Hospice wouldn’t exist without the incredible support of the generous community of Greater Manchester. Every single brick that’s been laid, every ward that’s been built and every patient that’s been cared for is because people like you have donated time or money.

Although their care is free, only a third of their funding comes from the NHS. The rest is down to the kindness of people like you – people who have helped to make the Hospice what it is today.
