How about the Cinnamon Trust which cares for animals when owners are unable to.
Things like dog walking when owner is ill or looking after them when owner is in hospital

www.cinnamon.org.uk/


Like the idea of Cystic Fibrosis, nursed quite a few over the years. When I started there was, sadly, no need for adult services

Can I suggest Alzheimer UK? 2 big reasons

Our demographics indicate dementia type illness will rise by about 85% in the coming years due to our ageing population which means it will begin to affect all of us in some way through friends and family and it is the cruelest most dehumanising undignified disease I ever witnessed.

Charities supporting older people are 10 times less likely to receive donations from public donors, trusts and philanthropists, than charities working with animals.

Just my thought.

My son was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in July so I would like to suggest the MS Society as the MHF charity.

Charity to consider

Hi, my name is Loraine ( Gasmansgoffa)

I have for the past 3 years done cycles rides to raise funds for three very important charities, " Breast Cancer Care" Jo's Trust (cervical cancer) and "Ovarian Cancer trust.

Over the past 3 years I have cycles over . 5000 miles in England, Egypt and Kenya giving support to each of theres counties as well as our own, helping with cancer care. I and am proud to say, I have been part of a cycle group who have raised £1.6 million, ( how fantastic is that)

I am due to do my last epic cycle over the fantastic country of Cuba.

I hope to do this in 2013 in my 60th year,

If MHF could support my cycle efforts this year, I would be most grateful

If not, I hope some of you will join me on a trip , or first is a trip to Tower of London 26th May, to see the "Ceremony Of The Keys" with your own Beefeater and tour , Supper in the officers mess , No charge is made for the tower, just pay for supper , travel, and donation to my charity fund, £40 per head , 07968950040, west mids.


MOD NOTE: This post has been merged with the 2012 Charity thread so the charities suggested do not get missed when the list for voting is drawn up.

I can see the point about wanting to support the smaller or less well known charities, but Cancer Research Uk is an obvious choice of the "bigger" charities for me. And as much as smaller "local" charities are very needy, as a national group we should perhaps be supporting a national charity?

I have obvious connections through Viv with Ovacome, the Ovarian cancer support charity

http://www.ovacome.org.uk/


and of course Macmillan cancer support:-

As far as I know, the only motorhoming Oxford United supporter in Bognor.

I don't feed trolls!

I totally agree with busterbears reasons and think

http://www.alzheimers.org.uk

would be a good charity for MHF for 2012.

It has been in the news today about our need for more understanding of this illness to enable us to improve the quality of care and life for both sufferers and carers.

I support Frank's suggestion of Children in Need
Check the link to see how money raised nationally can help smaller local charities.
