My story

[p]Thank you for taking the time to visit our fundraising page.[/p][p]We're taking part in the Italian Job in October 2019 to raise money for the children's charity Buttle UK, a small charity that does amazing work. The Italian Job has run every year since 1990 and has raised nearly £3 million for children's charities.[/p][p]Driving 3,000 miles through Europe over two weeks in a classic Mini is going to be a challenge and we hope you'll support our fundraising activities, every penny does count.[/p][p]The event is fun as well and we will be funding all expenses of the trip so that all of the money we raise goes to Buttle. If you are a UK taxpayer your donation can be boosted at no extra cost to you by selecting Gift Aid.[/p][p]Buttle UK is a charity dedicated to helping children and young people who are living in crisis – with a simple, direct and very practical approach. They provide basic essentials to children across the UK whose most fundamental needs are not being met. Children who, for example, are not getting a proper night’s sleep, a hot meal or clean clothes. [/p][p]Buttle UK provides things that most of us take for granted – cookers, fridges and children’s beds and they also pay for things that can help in the longer term: therapy or counselling for a child that has lived with domestic violence; or a laptop so a homeless teenager can attend their first college course. Things that give a child or young person a genuine chance for change.[/p][p]It saddens me that we have families in the UK that can't afford the basics most of us take for granted. The need that drove Reverend Frank Buttle to raise £1million to help lift children out of poverty is as much present in 2019 as it was in 1953.[/p][p]I'm thankful that there are organisations such as Buttle UK that look after families in need, and for the generous individuals who put their hand in their pocket and support these amazing organisations.[/p][p]Donating through Virgin Money Giving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with Virgin Money Giving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to Buttle where it can be helping a child in need within days.[/p][p]You can follow our progress before and after the event at [url=][/url][/p][p]Thank you[/p][p]Nigel & Evelyn West[/p]
