2017 – Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice – Thanks to all the Boxers and Guests, we raised £18,000.00
Once again we decided to support Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice to help generate funds for the new hospice they are currently building in High Barnet, which will help many families during the difficult times they face.
2016 – Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice – Thanks to the amazing generosity of all our guests, we raised over £22,000.00
Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice is a community based hospice service providing support for children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and their families in North London. They provide care and support to 178 families, 147 children and 245 siblings. Their mission is:
To provide care and support for children and young people from birth who have a life-limiting or life-threatening condition. Their aim is to enable them to live full lives and to achieve their aspirations;
To ensure that families are able to live life as fully as possible whilst their child is still alive and go on to face the future with hope after bereavement.
Noah’s Ark currently has an annual income target of £1.4m to provide vital services. As a charity they remain dependent on private donations to provide services with only 10% of funding coming from the statutory sector. Noah’s Ark are currently raising money to build a hospice so that they can provide care outside the home.
Alison Goodman, Director of Income Generation for Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, said on the night: “We are delighted to have been part of such a wonderful evening. Everyone here, or who donated, and all the boxers have made every precious moment count for Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice by raising a fantastic £22,000. Thank you so very much on behalf of all our children, young people and their families. In particular, thank you to Paul and Rita Shamplina who spent so much time and effort organising this amazing event.”
Last year’s charity was the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity and we raised just over £17,000.00. It is the leading organisation providing emotional and practical support direct to children with a life threatening or terminal illness and their families in England. No parent should outlive their child and the charity believes that families should not have to cope alone. The charity supports over 25% of the 6,000 families in England who could benefit from its support.
“Public generosity funds the majority of our work, with less than 3% of monies coming from government funding. Just £22 provides an hour’s care for a family in need – which means Landlord Action has funded more than 818 hours of care. We are so grateful that Landlord Action chose to support Rainbow Trust.” – Emma Haines, Director of Marketing and Fundraising, Rainbow Trust
