Bodie Hodges Foundation

The Bodie Hodges Foundation was formed in 2013 by Nick and Donna Hodges after the tragic death of their 10-month old son, Bodie. Bodie became an organ donor, giving hope and life to four other children, and so the Bodie Hodges Foundation was established to support families who have been bereaved of a child of any age and to promote organ donation.

Their vision is to give hope to bereaved families living in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland by providing a range of services that support grieving parents and siblings and encourage them to rebuild and remember. The charity is growing to offer a more extensive range of services, including Bodie’s Boathouse which opened in 2016. Their work is only possible through fundraising, and donations are very much appreciated to enable them to support other families through the Team Bodie community.

 

Alex’s Wish

The charity raises vital funds towards eradicating Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a muscle-wasting, genetic disorder that affects one in every 3,500 boys born. Every single muscle is destroyed due to a lack of protein, including the heart and lungs. Alex’s Wish was set up by Emma and Andy Hallam (parents to Alex) in late 2012 to help raise vital funds to help bring about new treatments and ultimately a cure for this devastating condition. Since then, they’ve invested £400,000 in scientific research and another £90,000 into clinical research infrastructure, working closely with Duchenne UK.

They require substantial funding for clinical trials, and are aiming to raise another million pounds over the next three years, so all donations count.
