Is jumping out of a plane on your bucket list? Imagine doing this whilst raising funds for a good cause. Well at Black Knights, you can! We work with 100’s of charities in the North West and around the UK.

What is involved?

A tandem skydive involves you being connected to a British Skydiving qualified instructor through the use of a harness. You’ll be able to experience the 120mph rush once you have completed your 20-minute safety briefing on the date of your choice.

St John's Hospice

St John’s Hospice is a local charity which provides free palliative care to patients with life shortening conditions. Our services cover a population area of 250,000 people in North Lancashire, South Lakes and parts of North Yorkshire. We have been caring for our community every minute of every day since 1986. Our care will always be free to those who need it, but it isn’t cost free. It costs over £4 million a year to run the hospice with only around a third of this amount provided by government funding. The remaining two thirds must be raised through events, community donations, grants & legacies. St John’s Hospice has been part of the local community for over thirty years and provides vital service to patients and families all over our community. Our aim is to ensure that on the journey towards the end of life, we provide the right care, in the right place, at the right time.

Having a life shortening condition does not mean that quality of daily life should suffer. Our experienced team of specialists work together with our patients to make sure they are getting the care and support they need to live their life the way they want to, as much as possible.

Our In-Patient Unit provides a high standard of specialist palliative care and support around the clock, 365 days of the year, for anyone aged 18 years and over.

Our Day Therapy Services provide a place for people to come and talk to others going through similar experiences to them, make friends, take part in group exercises or perhaps relax with a complementary therapy session. The aim is to enhance quality of life and to promote independence as far as possible.

Our Hospice at Home team are a dedicated unit of healthcare professionals who visit patients in the comfort of their own home to offer specialist palliative care at the end of life. Offering symptom management as well as support and advice, the team is there to help both the patient and their family.

We first opened our doors in 1986 and for over 30 years those doors have never closed – day or night. We have provided hands-on nursing care for local people facing the most challenging time of their lives; we have supported their families and friends and we have walked alongside them during their bereavement journey, for as long as they have needed us.

CADASIL is an abbreviation for a long name describing a rare hereditary form of stroke. (Cerebral Autosomal Dominant Arteriopathy with Subcortical Infarcts and Leukoencephalopathy) but migraine can also be a prominent feature. CADASIL is a genetic condition caused by a small abnormality (mutation) in a gene called NOTCH3.

Who we are

We set up the website because we know how scary it can be once you have been diagnosed. CADASIL is a rare condition and not many GPs know about it, so we set up a charity with the approval of the University of Cambridge so that we can fundraise and raise awareness of CADASIL and also to hep, if we can, answer any questions that you may have.

Aiming Higher

We are a small charity in Blackpool that tackles the social determinants of raising a child with disabilities in one of the most socially deprived areas of Great Britain.

To this end we provide a children’s centre for 0-5 years old where they can come and play and the parents and carers can network and share ideas, tips and experiences. We also offer a bespoke tailor made family support service where we can help with benefit issues, gaining diagnosis, assistance in appointments with fellow professionals, gaining a ECH plan for schools, a counselling service, emotional support and last but not least community activities and events such as trips to the Sandcastle and trampoline parks for example.

All of our core services are absolutely free of charge and the trips out to places of interest are free or Heavily  subsidised. We are a non profit charity this is why we need to fundraise for the vast majority of what we do. We think our children and families are pretty amazing, we hope you do too.
