What We Do

What Does The Life Of Riley Foundation Do?

A number of close friends and associates of Riley’s family have been raising money for charities that care for children with cerebral palsy as well as other brain injury related problems. We are proud of the fact that ALL proceeds raised as part of our activities go to the causes we support and we self-fund all of the costs (although most people and companies donate their time, effort, facilities, etc. for free!).

Since we started in 2004, we have raised over £90,000 for a variety of charities and causes including:
§ Scope
§ Whizz-kids
§ Action Medical Research
§ Headway
§ Evelina Children’s Hospital
§ Southend Toy Library
§ SNAPS (an Essex Special Needs support community)
§ Kingsdown School (a Special Needs school)
§ Little Havens Hospice
§ Various needy children local to Essex have benefited from direct donations to purchase equipment or to go towards private medical treatment
We do this by a variety of ways including:
§ Concerts
§ Curry nights
§ Charity auctions
§ Endurance sporting events such as Marathons, Ironman and Ultra Distance Triathlons, Cycling Events
§ Family Fun Days

And much more!
