Thankyou to all our donors

Thankyou to all our donors

Skill greatly values the support of all its donors. One of Skill's values, adopted by Skill's trustees during our 25th anniversary year is:

Skill values its supporters and welcomes opportunities to develop relationships with them, and to foster mutual understanding.

Without the support of voluntary donations Skill, which has always been an under-resourced charity from its inception in 1974, would be unable to maintain its independence. An independent stance is crucial to maintaining the role of users in Skill's development, and its advocacy role with and for disabled people.

Recent donations

Skill has been delighted to receive grants and donations from a number of organisations in recent months, notably a donation of £50,000 for core costs from The Tubney Trust, and a pledge of £60,000 over three years from the Rank Foundation. Other financial support has come from the Goldsmiths' Company, the G B Herbert Charitable Trust, the Albert Hunt Trust, the Comino Foundation, and several university Vice-Chancellors.

University of Surrey
University of Sheffield
University of Southampton

The City Parochial Foundation has pledged to support a new phase of our Disabled Volunteering Programme with a two year grant, which will build on lessons learnt from earlier experience and promote volunteering for disabled people in the London area.

We are indebted to our 2002 marathon runners, cyclists and skydivers for the spnsorship they have raised, especially Simon Haines, a marathon runner, and Kitty Bouman a skydiver, who are our champion sponsorship-raisers to date.

Various donations ranging from £100 to £1,000 have been received from Barclays, Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group plc, Rio Tinto, Alliance & Leicester plc, Mars UK Limited, Bank of England, Pfizer Limited, Ford Motor Company Ltd and Thomson Corporation Charitable Trust for running costs or to sponsor conference costs.
