What We Do

The Harley Jae Trust has been created to help children with life limiting conditions and their families both in the community and in hospital settings. As we grow as an organisation we will be launching different appeals to help us achieve our goals. Changing lives doesn’t happen over night, here are some of the outstanding things our team have done to raise money for the charity.

We’ve laughed…

And then we changed lives…

The money raised from The Harley Jae Trust aids the hospital in buying vital life saving equipment and specialists pushchairs so children with life limiting conditions can get out with their families and make unforgettable memories. 

And we won’t stop.
