A charity helping young people in Devon

How we have helped

  • The money kindly awarded to me has been vital in helping with my studies for medicine.  The course has been just as intense as I anticipated, leaving me little to none time for paid work to help susidise my living costs.  The money was used specifically to purchase a neuroanatomy book to assist me in my current Brain and Behaviour block and also to pay for travel costs to my local hospital where the universisty has placements.  Some of it was also used for clothing suitable for on the wards, the part of the course I am enjoying the most as it means I get to interact with the people I will one day be treating.  It reminds me of my work as a HCA at NDDH and how I wish to return as a doctor one day to give back to the community............JG
     
  • Your award allowed me to experience and engage with a completely different and interesting culture.  The trip to Japan was a once in a lifetime opportunity and we got to stay with real Japanese families to experience their lives.  It has shown me that there is a lot more opportunities and choices outside of the UK.  The trip has changed my life and taught me to try new things.  the Japanese people were very friendly and they thaught me to be thankful for what I have and to enjoy every day.........Oliver
     
  • Thank you so much for helping to give my son a trip of his life so far.  Not only without the money from you he wouldn't have been able to go, it would have meant he would have missed out on such a great bonding session with his peers and the chance to try and take part in so many activities.  He is a very nervous boy that doubts his capabilities constantly.  He came back with a new sense of pride.  Tired but happy and with the 'push' from a caring teacher and encouragement from his friends he achieved and had a go at things that were beyond his wildest dreams.  Thank you so much........
