Dan’s Fund For Burns, a UK based adult burns charity, was founded back in 2003 by Polly Brooks, MBE. Polly was badly burned herself in the Bali bombing in 2002 and sadly lost her first husband Dan and all her other friends in the blast. The only way she could try and cope with the scale of devastation was to set up a charity to try and help others deal with the enormity of a burn injury. Dan’s Fund is a small but incredibly effective charity designed to help adults affected by burns recover and re-build their lives.
For most children, the opportunities to play and have fun are endless: after school clubs, swimming, birthday parties or something as simple as going to a friend’s house. However, for disabled children, things can be very different, the opportunities to play are extremely limited and in many cases non-existent. Disabled children and their families are often left feeling isolated, unhappy, and with nowhere to go. This is where Challengers comes in.
The Foundation is busier than ever, helping an increasing number of young people seriously injured through sport. It was Matt Hampson’s and the Foundation’s big goal to build the Get Busy Living Centre, a place where their beneficiaries can receive rehabilitation and meet others in a similar position. This dream is now a reality and the centre opened in October 2018.
