William's Fund / Childhood Cancer Research Fund

Working towards £1 million specifically for Research into Childhood Cancers

William's Fund was established in February 2001 in memory of William, who died on 12 December 2000 at the age of four years and nine months.

William amazed everyone at how he coped, always smiling with a twinkle in his eye that won so many hearts.

Since William died we have raised significant monies for the Childhood Cancer Research Fund. Two researchers have been employed at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford and we aim to fund these researchers for the foreseeable future.

The Angus Memorial Mitochondrial Fund (Fund 0398)

AngusWithin each of our cells are mitochondria, microscopic enzyme packages, that turn food into usable energy.

If the mitochondria are defective, your body cannot function as it should. For many sufferers disability and early death follows, as there is currently no treatment or cure.

Mitochondrial diseases are a spectrum, there are lots of different types and they vary in their severity. They commonly have a genetic cause and can run in families.

The Angus Memorial Mitochondrial Fund was set up in memory of Angus, who died of a type called Leigh's disease aged three years old, deteriorating over a year. Its aim is to raise money to help research into mitochondrial disease and its activities support researchers and hence patients.
