We are absolutely delighted to tell you that tomorrow marks the 5th anniversary that The Campbell Burns Metabolic Trust became registered with the Charities Commission. From an idea amongst Campbell’s family sitting around a dinner table to where we are now – this brilliant charity has grown and we’re so, so pleased to have helped so many families.
In the past five years, the Trust has awarded an incredible:
867 Grants – Experience, Essentials, Food Preparation, Emergency, and grants to family support group activities and hospital-run events
This has only been possible through the generous support of our fundraisers and donors, including a £10,000 donation from the Worshipful Company of Grocers. Over the last five years, you magnificent people have raised or donated:
That’s just staggering. We’re honoured to have your support and being able to help children in Campbell’s name makes us very proud. As John and Marilyn (Campbell’s Granda and Grandma, and charity Trustees) put it: “from the low of losing Campbell to the high of knowing we are able to help others and keep his name alive, the charity has helped us to smile again.”
It takes a lot of hard work to run a charity and the Trustees all do it on a volunteer basis. We’re powered by tea, chocolate, and a desire to help and to make childrens’ lives that little bit easier. Here’s to the next 5 years.
Love from Bekki, Mark, Dan, Holly, Isla, and all the Trustees.
And Campbell xx
