My story

[p]Welcome to the Leicestershire Business Community's Lockdown Fundraising Page! [/p][p]I thought it would be good to keep us all communicating through lockdown whilst having some fun raising money and continuing to support some of the amazing Leicestershire charities, who unfortunately due to lockdown, are not able to host their usual great events and activities for us all! [/p][p]So, the idea is some virtual sporting events which we can get involved with and, of course, donate some money to support Bodie Hodges Foundation, Hope Against Cancer and Soft Touch Arts. [/p][p]The Virtual Grand National was a great start last weekend, so thank you to those that chose their horses and you can now donate your £5 on here. [/p][p]Look out for more fun sporting events that will be announced soon! [/p][p]Here is some information on who and what these 3 local charities support and why it is so important to continue to support them throughout these challenging times. [/p][p][b]Bodie Hodges Foundation[/b][/p][p]The Bodie Hodges Foundation offers support to families that have been bereaved of a child and raise awareness of Organ Donation. The charity was formed in 2013 following the tragic death of their 10-month-old son. Through their own experiences, it became apparent that there was a total lack of support for families during the most difficult time in their lives. Since forming they have set up several projects including providing a week’s free stay at Bodie’s Boathouse for grieving families, Treasured Memory Bags to help siblings with their grief and most recently a Lead Child and Families Bereavement Practitioner to do face to face work as early intervention.[/p][p][url=https://www.bodiehodgesfoundation.co.uk/]https://www.bodiehodgesfoundation.co.uk/[/url][/p][p][b]Hope Against Cancer[/b][/p][p]Hope Against Cancer is Leicestershire and Rutland’s local cancer research charity. We fund cutting-edge research in our area and have made clinical trials available to local people.[/p][p]We strive for a future where more people survive cancer. We do this by funding innovative research that leads to improved treatments and better outcomes for local people.[/p][p]We work in partnership with local universities and hospitals to make sure that Leicestershire is a hub of expertise in cancer research and treatment. Since we were set up in 2003, we have funded over 60 research projects, tackling many different forms of cancer.[/p][p][url=https://www.hopeagainstcancer.org.uk/]https://www.hopeagainstcancer.org.uk/[/url][/p][p][b]Soft Touch[/b][/p][p]Soft Touch has been using arts, media, music and cooking activities to create positive change for disadvantaged young people across Leicestershire since 1986. Working with around 800 young people aged 13-25 each year, we involve them in projects which develop their creative, social and employability skills. We run activities from our centre on New Walk, in schools and in local communities and different agencies refer young people who are struggling in mainstream education or with other life challenges to our projects. For young people who don’t have the security of a stable family life, it can be hard to look forward to a positive future: we support them when they need it most and help them to progress with their lives in a positive way.[/p][p][url=https://www.soft-touch.org.uk/]https://www.soft-touch.org.uk/[/url][img][/img][/p]
