ACLT is a 40+ time award-winning charity committed to providing hope to patients living with blood cancer and illnesses where a matched donor (stem cell, blood or organ) is required to save a life. Our work is driven by a belief that no one should die waiting for a donor to become available. Through our work, we improve the odds of finding matches by registering potential donors en masse from all ethnicities, with a focus on donors from the African and Caribbean communities. This is due to an extreme shortage of potential African and Caribbean donors. We also provide support and advice to patients and their families throughout treatment, from diagnosis to recovery and sadly (in some cases), while supporting the patient and family during ‘end of life’: where treatments have not been successful. Our underlying ethos is to educate communities across the UK by raising awareness about stem cell, blood and organ donation. ACLT was founded in 1996 by Beverley De-Gale, OBE, and Orin Lewis, OBE, 3 years after receiving the devastating news that their 6-year-old son Daniel De-Gale needed a stem cell transplant in order to win his 6-year battle against acute leukaemia.
Against Breast Cancer is a registered charity funding vital nationwide research into breast cancer secondary spread. Our aim is to increase survival after breast cancer treatment, through new research into diet and lifestyle and information gathered will also contribute to the development of cancer vaccines.

Air Ambulances UK (AAUK) is the national charity supporting the lifesaving work of the UK's air ambulance, enabling them to save even more lives every day. Air ambulance crews bring the Emergency Department to patients who have suffered a life threatening or life changing trauma or medical emergency; providing advanced critical care to save lives. On average an air ambulance can reach someone in urgent need within 15 minutes. Anyone, anywhere in the UK can become a patient at anytime. Air Ambulance charities are collectively dispatched to over 100 lifesaving missions each day across the UK; each mission is funded almost entirely by the generosity of local communities. AAUK raises national funds to invest in the air ambulance community and acts as the one voice on issues of national significance. Our vision is that together we will ensure the best possible chance of survival and patient outcome for everyone in need of lifesaving prehospital care. We do this by supporting, championing and representing the invaluable work of the air ambulance community at a national level.
