Following the successful APL Fund Raising Dinner last November and the generous support of McBains as a sponsor, The APL recently made a donation of £15,000 to their nominated charity, Variety.
Neil Odom-Haslett, President of the APL said, "this is a children’s charity who aim to improve the lives of 1.3 million disabled children and young people and nearly four million children living in poverty in the UK. They provide practical, tangible help that makes an immediate difference to children, young people, parents, siblings and teachers. The APL are delighted to work with Variety and that our donation will go towards their cause and help make a difference.

Largest single charity donation to Momentum
A few weeks ago, the APL were delighted to take a trip to Momentum Children’s Charity HQ to deliver a cheque for £20,000 from the proceeds of the Annual Fund Raising Dinner in November. Momentum is the APL’s chosen charity for the year and the donation represents the largest single amount donated to a charity so far.
Helping Disabled Kids to Thrive
Earlier this year, when travelling across town was the norm, Neil Odom-Haslett and Stefan Goold visited Kids to hand them over a cheque for £12,500 from the proceeds of the APL’s Annual Fund Raising Dinner.
An established national charity since 1970, KIDS leads the way in providing disabled children and their families with support to thrive, not just survive. They ensure disabled children from birth to 25 have the opportunity to learn, play, build friendships, gain confidence and improve their well-being while providing vital time, emotional and practical support to parents and siblings.
