The Trustees’ meeting held on 16th November 2023 considered applications submitted and will be contacting successful applicants shortly.
Trustees regret that after detailed review, they will be unable to consider any applications from NEW charities in 2024, except those from charities they have supported previously. This is due to continuing uncertainty in the stock market and a significant increase in the number of applicants. Trustees wish to protect the capital value of their fund and in so doing also protect John Horniman’s original concern for the health and well-being of children who are sick or have learning difficulties.
Trustees are delighted to be able to support this project in Scotland which is a first for our trustees, North of the border. We are pleased to award a grant specifically targeted to your school holiday programme for children with life limiting conditions.
Trustees are pleased to support your programme of support for babies and children across Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire with congenital heart disease who are treated at Leeds Congenital Heart Unit. We make a grant towards your annual programme for young patients in 2023, supporting their emotional and physical wellbeing during and after their treatment in hospital.
Trustees are pleased to be able to support the Douglas Macmillan Children’s Hospice in providing Dramatherapy sessions to help children express their emotions and cope with the effects of a life-limiting condition.
Trustees were pleased to receive your application for funding to enable us to contribute to the work you do in training young children in their use of a wheelchair via workshops and fun activities such as dance and basketball.
Trustees are pleased to support your help to children awaiting a kidney transplant by the publication of 200 bespoke copies of ‘My New Kidney’ books to include a 56pp 210 x210 hardback, full colour printing hand finished with holographic sticker, gold envelope and letter felt tips and “My New Kidney” drawstring bag.
Trustees admire your vision of a world where all families, that have disabled and life limiting children, have the support that they need at the time they need it. We appreciate that your ‘Pot of Gold’ initiative allows this to happen in a small way as you seek for suggestions of how to tap into your expertise and infrastructure most effectively. We are pleased to note that Stephen Cheetham supports the work of Little Miracles. We are able to award a grant towards 3 Pots of Gold and would appreciate knowing about the projects these pots fund in due course.
