Caudwell Children

I received an email from Whats On 4 Little Ones today announcing their support of the Caudwell Children charity - see below for more information.

I just wanted to say thanks for opening my eyes to a wonderful charity and I hope that they continue to support the children for a very long time, and as my son has autism I feel that the more help our children can get the more they will be able to achieve in their lives!

Did you know?

* There are currently 770,000 disabled children in the UK.
* Every 25 minutes a severely disabled child is born.
* 100,000 children in the UK waiting for a wheelchair.
* 25,000 children have a life threatening illness and 104 children die every week from a childhood illness.
* 55% of families caring for a disabled child live in or on the margins of poverty.

And . . . did you also know?

* To date, Caudwell Children has donated over £2.27 million to help children with wheelchair needs.
* Since 2000 Caudwell Children has donated over £10 million worth of equipment, treatment or therapy to sick and disabled children living in the UK.
