Daytrippers is a charity supporting disabled and terminally ill children and young people throughout the UK. We do this by funding days out and organising bespoke, inclusive events. Our aim is to ensure that children and young people have opportunities to enjoy, improve their confidence and break boundaries through social, recreational and educational activities. We work in two ways: • Funding Day Trips: We run a grants programme to assist special schools, children's hospices, charities and support groups across the UK who are planning a group day trip. • Host Events: We host free events specifically designed for families, support groups and schools which are fun, imaginative, inclusive and safe. A wide variety of events are offered such as interactive performances, experiential learning and team building days, inclusive sports events, and sensory play with sound and light. We host ten events per year, mostly in London.

Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a group of genetic skin conditions that cause the skin to blister and tear at the slightest touch. Those born with EB have skin so fragile they are called 'butterfly children' – their skin is quite simply as fragile as the wing of a butterfly.There is currently no known cure for EB. At DEBRA, our work is focused on funding research to change this, while also supporting people living with EB to enhance their quality of life through improved healthcare, access to information and respite care.

Derbyshire Wildlife Trust is one of 47 local Wildlife Trusts around the UK working to promote and protect local wildlife. It covers the whole of Derbyshire and was founded in 1962 in response to environmental threats to the local countryside, since when it has continued to grow. The Trust is based at Middleton by Wirksworth, on the edge of the Peak District. It is a Registered Charity (Number 222212), supported by more than 14,000 members and over 500 volunteers.[1] The Trust manages nearly 50 Nature Reserves covering over 630 hectares (1,600 acres) throughout the county, from flooded gravel pits in the south to moorland and upland woodland in the north. Fourteen of these are Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs). The Trust also works with schools, local communities, local authorities, landowners and others to promote and protect the natural environment. Environmental education and workshops are provided at the Avenue Washlands Visitor Centre, the Whistlestop Centre, and the Wildlife Discovery Room at Carsington Water. Derbyshire Wildlife Trust has a 'Living Landscape' approach to nature conservation. By working with local businesses, landowners, communities and individuals on habitat restoration and enhancement projects throughout the county, it is hoped landscape scale conservation will create a healthier environment for wildlife, the local economy and people.

Devon Air Ambulance Trust is the charity which raises the funds to keep two Air Ambulances in Devon flying. Independent of Government and Lottery funding, every penny of the �4.5 million needed annually comes from the generosity and goodwill of the community, businesses and friends of Devon. Devon is a remote county, with many hard to reach areas, which is where an Air Ambulance comes into its own, being able to fly in a straight line, over traffic jams. In fact 90% of Devon can be reached within 10 minutes, with the rest within 15 minutes. Reassuring should you need emergency medical treatment quickly due to accident or illness.
