Millwall Charity Partners

8 March 2014

All you need to know

Millwall Football Club supports a number of charities, both national and local in a variety of practical ways and for the 2013/14 campaign are proud to enter into a partnership with Prostate Cancer UK.

Here are the details of those other charities with which we have close links and how you can find out more about the work they do.

Demelza House Hospice 
Demelza South East London is a six-bedded hospice in Eltham providing a large range of hospice and care services to children, young people and their families. Life-limited or life threatened children or young people and their families benefit from a wide range of facilities. 

At the end of the child or young person's illness, Demelza offer a comprehensive service of support using a bereavement suite - known as the Butterfly Suite.

Demelza is Millwall's adopted hospice as part of the Football League's 'Help the Hospices' charity initiative.

Help for Heroes 
Millwall have worked closely with H4H for the last couple of years. The charity provides direct, practical support for wounded servicemen and women and also funds projects and initiatives to make a real difference to the lives of our wounded heroes.

H4H prides itself on a 'Money In and Money Out' policy that ensures every penny raised is spent or allocated to the direct, practical support of men and women of the Armed Forces whose lives are affected in the line of duty.

Everyman 
The Everyman charity, for which club record goalscorer Neil Harris is patron, is a charity especially close to the hearts of Lions fans. Millwall supporters have raised in excess of £70,000 for Everyman, whilst Zampa the Lion ran the London Marathon in his full furry glory to add in excess of £10,000 to the charity.

Everyman was established to raise awareness and fund vital research within the UK's first centre dedicated to male cancers.

Jimmy Mizen Foundation 
Lions fan Jimmy Mizen was tragically murdered in May 2008 in an act of senseless violence. The Jimmy Mizen foundation has been set up as a positive way of remembering the life of Jimmy, with the principal aim to help young people, up to the age of 24, play a positive role within their communities as independent and responsible individuals.

So far the charity has funded three 'Jimmy Buses' which are available for local registered charities to hire through the Lewisham community transport scheme.

Marie Curie Cancer Care  
Marie Curie Cancer Care was the official Football League charity partner during 2010/11 and is close to the hearts of many Lions fans.

The charity provides nursing care, free of charge, to terminally ill people, giving them the chance to choose to be cared for at home. Marie Curie Cancer Care was established in 1948 - the same year as the NHS - and provides care for around 29,000 terminally ill patients every year. There are nine Marie Curie Hospices in the United Kingdom.

Ronald McDonald House 
Ronald McDonald House Charities looks after families with seriously ill children by providing free 'home away from home' accommodation at hospitals across the UK. One of its 14 Houses is Ronald McDonald House in Camberwell, which supports families with children receiving treatment at King's College Hospital.

Many families travel miles from home, from all parts of the UK, so that their child can receive expert medical care at King's College Hospital. The Hospital specialises in looking after children with liver conditions and is the largest service of its kind in the world. Many children have to remain in hospital for months at a time, so for the families, staying close to their child can be a struggle.

Thanks to Ronald McDonald House Camberwell, families with children at King's College Hospital can stay just a stone's throw from the children's ward. They can stay for free, for as long as they need to.

London Taxi Benevolent Association for War Disabled
The object of The London Taxi Benevolent Association is to help War Disabled persons, in their homes and hospitals, throughout London and the Home Counties, by providing entertainment, outings, and much needed specialised equipment.

Their aim is simple; to work for the benefit, comfort and enjoyment of the War Disabled, to the best of their ability.  
Year after year, drivers and committee members are prepared to give up their time and money to bring happiness and pleasure into the lives of these men, and women, who gave so much for us all.

We also support a small number of local causes.
