LRA have recently pledged to donate a proportion of each residential project fee to the charity Buttle UK.
Buttle UK helps children and young people who are seriously in need throughout the UK. It makes grants to meet the critical needs of individual children and young people whose safety, health or development are at risk. The legacy from their founder Frank Buttle means they can cover their own admin costs, therefore every £1 donated can go straight to a family that needs it.
Our money doesn't just disappear into a pot. Thanks to their well developed reporting systems they can tell us, our staff and our customers the stories of the actual people we have helped. They can focus all your support on people in your local area or spread it across the country - last year they made a grant in every local authority area in the country. Just £150, which is our minimum pledge per residential project, can buy a bed and all the bedding for a child previously sleeping on the floor. Around 400,000 children in the UK do not have a bed of their own to sleep in. So far we have provided 3 beds in the Sussex region.
We are proud to support Buttle UK and look forward to helping them achieve their mission, which is 'The maintenance, education and advancement
in life of children and young people who through poverty and family circumstances are in need of, and will benefit significantly from, Buttle UK’s support.'
