Every day in the UK, up to five children lose their lives because of a rare disease. These children and their families are waiting for life-saving treatments. Researchers are waiting for the funding to find answers. We’re waiting for your help.
Whether you’re taking on a Sparks challenge or hosting your own fundraising event, your contribution will have a huge impact on the lives of seriously ill children and their families – and we’re incredibly grateful for your support. To help you make the most of your fundraising, please have a look at our guides and other fundraising resources.
