Charity for Kids aim is to help Disabled, Sick/Terminally-ill Children/Families by improving their current quality of life in & around the area of Hastings, St Leonards, Bexhill on Sea & Battle (East Sussex). We want to be able to support Families throughout the UK, but one step at a time!
Help for Heroes was founded in October 2007 to help the wounded servicemen and women returning from Afghanistan and Iraq. The message of the charity is simple: We are strictly non political and non critical; we simply want to help. We believe that anyone who volunteers to serve in time of war, knowing that they risk all, is a hero. These are ordinary people doing extraordinary things and some of them are living with the consequences of their service for life. We may not be able to prevent our soldiers from being wounded, but together we can help them get better.
Life-saving charity Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance carries a specialist doctor and critical care paramedic who can carry out advanced medical procedures at scene, giving patients the best chance and quality of survival. The medics take to the scene the type of expertise and equipment normally found only in the resuscitation area of a hospital’s emergency department and can fly patients to the most appropriate hospital according to their needs which is often the major trauma centres in London. It costs £6million a year to keep both helicopters flying and the charity relies almost entirely on donations
