WE DID IT! £12,000 RAISED FOR CHARITY!
The Jack O'Donnell Foundation
Jack O’Donnell was a great athlete who was fortunate enough to find a sport he loved, and to receive the support he needed to enable him to achieve his potential.
Tragically, in the summer of 2010, just as Jack was looking forward to his 16th birthday, he suffered a fatal accident. Despite medical efforts Jack passed away on the 27th of July 2010.
The Jack O’Donnell Foundation’s primary aim is to give other children the inspiration and financial support that Jack received, so that they too can achieve their potential in the sport they love. It is also our aim to fund life changing/saving medical treatment to young people who are in great need, just as Jack was.
Sponsor a Gambian Child
Sponsor a Gambian Child is a UK based charity run be Carol Kendall. The charity provides sponsorship for children in the Brikama area of The Gambia.
So far they have provided funding for over 400 children to attend school, through individual sponsorship or through accumulated donations. Once the donations have been made, the website will include details of all the children that have received sponsorship for school fees, equipment and uniform.
It is truly an exciting opportunity to be able to give children from such a welcoming part of the world the opportunity to fulfil their potential and enjoy a full school programme - something that we take for granted in the UK.
