The Edwina Mountbatten and Leonora Children's Foundation
Our Club Captain for 2021 Mr Kevin Squibb has chosen to support The Edwina Mountbatten and Leonora Children's Foundation.
The Leonora Children's Cancer Fund was established in 1992 by the then Lord and Lady Romsey, now the Earl and Countess Mountbatten of Burma in memory of their daughter The Hon. Leonora Knatchbull, who died aged five of cancer.
The Edwina Mountbatten Trust was a charity founded in memory of Leonora's great grandmother and was established in October 1963.
The two charities above merged in March 2010 so they could be even more effective in the what they could achieve,and became The Edwina Mountbatten and Leonora Children's Foundation.
The aims of the charity are:
The relief of sick, distressed or needy children in any part of the world. The promotion of the art and practice of nursing. The support of nurses caring for children suffering from cancer. The furtherance of primary research into causes of paediatric cancer, and also the support of such other charitable purposes as the Trustees shall from time to time decide.
