A friend is running a half marathon this winter & is looking for a small local children's charity to support. Does anyone know of any for whom a few thousand pounds might make a big difference?

It isnt a childrens charity but Beyond Food Foundation does amazing work with the homeless. Many of the people they help are young.

Check them out:

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust would be a very worthwhile cause. Lots of children suffering with CF don't live long enough to see adulthood.

Evelina London Children's Hospital at St Thomas' is a great local cause

I would second Evelina Children's Hospital at St. Thomas' Hospital. It is local and is for children.
The original hospital was located at Borough SE1.

The local newspaper, Southwark News, is running an appeal for Evelina so that may be the easiest route.

I recognise that Evelina is not just for local children and cannot be considered a small local charity but nonetheless is still local and for children and remains a very worthy cause.

Thanks for your suggestions. The Evelina Children's Hospital has actually treated my friends very young niece so that's perfect :-)

If you are, or anyone else is, still thinking about this, Time and Talents is a fab local charity. They have London Marathon runners every year and for them, a few hundred quid makes a massive difference.

Nice to know Time and Talents are still running, I think they used to have a place in Bermondsey street.

I never knew that existed, as an avid camper it breaks my heart that the kids around here don't get to spend a bit of time in the country, so cheap as well.
If I win the lottery I am going to buy a small farm just for this purpose.
Kids love camping!
