I have become involved in setting up Kids Independence Trust, a new small charity in the Telford area. We aim to provide equipment and services for disabled children, and children with life limiting or terminal illnesses, equipment that is not readily available through the NHS or mainstream funding.
My background is that for the last 8 years, I have run a small group of endurance enthusiasts, undertaking crazy endurance challenges to raise funds for local children. The thinking this year, was that we would put our skills to use by formalising a charity and enabling us to do more and use more of the funds we raise, through gift aid and reclamation of VAT, to do more.
Through the charity, we have linked in to various running, cycling and climbing groups and hope to put on an array of small events, as well as taking teams to other events. Marathons and half marathons, mudder events, skydives, cycling events, etc, to get others raising for us and to raise our profile.
We hope to grow and be able to help any child who requests the assistance. Either through one off purchases, or by building a library of resource materials and equipment for loan.
