The Afghanistan Trust

The Afghanistan Trust provides immediate help to wounded and bereaved Afghan veterans as well as long-term, sustainable assistance to help improve the lives of wounded Para’s and their families. All funds raised are used to make a real difference not only the Para’s, but also the bereaved wives and children of those who have been killed in action.

We want to leave a legacy for our brave Para’s who often require help long after their active service is over. The Afghanistan Trust believes that these men, who gave up their health and sometimes their lives for Britain, should receive our heartfelt thanks and support for as long as they need it.

The London Playing Fields Foundation

Protecting playing fields, improving lives. One of the country’s oldest sporting charities, the London Playing Fields Foundation is the leading body for the protection, provision and promotion of playing fields in the capital. It combines the power of sport with somewhere to play and, in so doing, makes a vital contribution to the health and well being of local communities. Since the Foundation’s formation in 1890 it has played a key role in establishing London’s position as one of the world’s greenest capital cities. Without its contribution London would have lost many of its open spaces. Once a playing field is lost it is lost forever.

Protecting playing fields and ensuring that they are well used can transform the lives of local communities. The LPFF’s aim is to widen participation in grassroots sport and create a healthier, more active London by providing facilities that are accessible, affordable and attractive. The Foundation is a great supporter of schools where an individual’s love for sport begins and it provides local clubs with good quality facilities in which they can play and practise
