The Charities

PLEASE TAKE TIME TO THINK ABOUT THE BENEFICIARIES OF THESE CHARITIES.

Rowing across the Atlantic Ocean should take us approximately 2 months, the beneficiaries live with their conditions permanently - children born with Fragile X Syndrome and men and women who have been physically or mentally handicapped as a result of fighting for their country.

 Your donation will directly affect them and their families.

 PUT YOURSELF IN THEIR SITUATION! 

How would you deal with life?

It is incredibly difficult to imagine the hardship that these people and their families have to face on a day to day basis and will face for the rest of their lives.

PLEASE DONATE GENEROUSLY AND BE A PART OF OUR JOURNEY!

 

FXS is the most common cause of inherited intellectual disability and

the most common known genetic

cause of Autism. As many as 1 in

3600 males and 1 4000 females are

born with a full mutation of the same

gene resulting in FXS. 

 

Maria Goss set up the Think Fragile X Foundation in early 2013 after both of her young sons, Ethan and Logan, were diagnosed with FXS.

 

 

The Think Fragile X Foundation aims to raise awareness of Fragile X

Syndrome (‘FXS’) by educating the

community about FXS. All profits from any fundraising events are

donated to charities who help support

people who have FXS, or families

who have loved ones affected by FXS

and need some financial support.

The aims of the Not Forgotten Association have remained much the same as they were when it was formed in 1920: to provide leisure and recreation for the benefit of serving and ex-service personnel who are wounded or have sustained permanent injuries.

More recently, the involvement of our Armed Forces in places such as Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan has highlighted the dangers of operational service and the continued need for this work.

This charity takes great care to ensure that all their unique and varied programmes of support and entertainment remain relevant and appeal to all the service men and women they work with, both those who have served in recent conflicts and veterans of previous wars.
