Can you help us with Funding…

Life Education East Midlands work is very important in addressing the health issues facing our children and society today. Young people are often surrounded by images and pressures that may encourage them to try both legal and illegal drugs. The work we deliver in schools gives children the knowledge, skills and attitudes to empower them to resist negative peer pressure and to make positive healthy choices.
Our visits are financed through contributions from the schools and often other agencies within their area, e.g. the local Rotary club.
However, even with these generous contributions and support our costs are not fully covered.

If you or your company would like to help you can do so by:

  • making a direct donation
  • hosting a fundraising event.
  • encouraging your Parish or Town Council to make a contribution towards the cost of the visit to a school in your area.
  • in kind giving – vehicle /electrical maintainance skills, spare parts for classrooms/ resources for classrooms e.g. a new Harold
  • sponsoring a particular activity/ workshop in school, e.g. bCyberwise workshops for anti-bullying week or a whole school visit for a school’s health week
  • Sponsoring a school in your area.

For more information on how to help or how to make a donation please contact Bill Banner. billbanner@lecn.co.uk

Sue Archer.“I have been a volunteer with Life Ed since I retired in 2002. I chose this charity, as we had used the service when I was in school and loved it! I saw how such a wonderful, interactive experience made the children listen and think about their life’s choices. It was amazing! I found the team here to be so helpful and welcoming – I could use my experience and skills to continue to make a difference to the lives of children in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire!”
Sue Archer. Volunteer & Trustee.
