We wouldn't be doing it if wasn't for some amazing charities and causes that we hope will really benefit from this![lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt][b]Action Against Hunger[/b] - an international humanitarian organisation committed to ending child hunger. Recognised as a leader in the fight against malnutrition, they save the lives of malnourished children while providing communities with access to safe water and sustainable solutions to hunger. [lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt][b]Army Benevolent Fund (The Soldiers Charity)[/b] - The ABF supports soldiers, former soldiers and their families in times of need. Many of the men and women helped by the ABF are either physically or mentally scarred from their years of service. These people put their lives on the line each day, and ABF is there to offer financial help when they need it most.
