2016 kicked off in style with the ALMT's biggest, loudest and last Burns Night supper. It was a great way to launch the Trust's tenth year and although Burns Night is no longer, the ALMT are looking forward to a future with closer relationships, more charity partners and even more partnerships worth sharing!
|ALMT annual report and accounts 2014-15|
|You can now view the ALMT annual report and accounts for the year 2014-15. They are available on the Charity Commission website or on the ALMT website. Read about all the partners supported last year, the co-funding scheme, who benefitted and some juicy facts and figures.|
|Epic Partners - Speedo - UK|
|Epic Partners believe that every child should be able to swim 25 metres and know how to be safe around water by the time they leave primary school. This project, co-funded with Speedo, has three main goals: to inspire and enable more children to swim, to educate and support the local community in the development of sport, and to incorporate water safety and drowning awareness into sessions. This project will also incorporate the use of the ALMT supported 'Danger Age' films.|
|All Ears - Cambodia|
|After a hugely successful year one, ALMT welcomed a second year application from All Ears Cambodia. In small communities in Cambodia, local healthcare is basic, if existent at all and ear care is inadequate. Children living in such conditions are at high risk of ear disease due to dirty water and unsanitary environments. This project will support the mobile clinic services and will be implemented across six provinces with an estimated 1000 paediatric consultations conducted. Learn more.|
|ACE Africa - Mac Bevan Foundation - Kenya|
|Now in its third year, this project is a great example of maximising a grants potential. With the aims of providing school uniforms for those unable to afford them and sanitary wear for young girls in Kenya, ACE Africa have more than tripled the predicted beneficiaries by not only using a local technology college to produce the school uniforms but also distribute and educate on the safe use of innovative re-usable sanitary towels. This project is co-funded with the Mac Bevan Foundation. Learn more.|
|Fred Foundation - UK|
|Too many autistic children are being denied the one thing that would make the most profound difference to their lives and to the lives of their families – an individual specialised education programme. For the second year running, the ALMT are supporting the Fred Foundation in providing financial assistance for families with children with autism to receive Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) therapy. Support is offered families on Fred Foundation's waiting list. Learn more.|
|LICO - Egmont Trust - Malawi|
|LICO stands for Life Concern Organisation and is based in Malawi where child sex abuse is among the biggest problems faced by children and young people. This project, 'Edutoy' will employ specific counselling and education techniques to not only focus victims of sexual abuse but also work with local communities and schools to encourage and foster a culture of child protection throughout the region. This project has been made possible by joining forces with the Egmont Trust.|
|The Last Burns Night 2016|
|As the last ever ALMT Burns Night, this one had to be special and it was! Not only did it raise an amazing £196,000 but £65K of this came from direct project pledges to support ALMT partners and the ALMT Bereavement Support service. The Rick Parfitt Junior Band rocked the party until 2am and celebrity guests Rachel Riley, Pasha Kovalev, Dave Brown and Luke Evans all got on stage to help raise funds! In case you missed the big night, you can view the photo album here.|
|Virgin London Marathon 2016|
|Alex Wimborne, Emma Beddow, Charles Beddow and James Chalmers took on the UK's biggest and most inspiring challenge last month - the Virgin London Marathon. 26.2 miles across London taking in some of the most iconic sights of the city and absorbing the incredible support of the thousands who line the route to cheer on the runners. Together, the four amazing fundraisers reached an incredible total of £22K which the ALMT are looking forward to spending this year on some amazing new and existing partners.|
|Tough Mudder 2016|
|Ten brave (or crazy) challengers are taking on Tough Mudder in September 2016. The team, all from Corney and Barrow Bars, will be getting rough and ready in South London raising money for their chosen charity for a second year, Siblings Together. The team raised over £11,000 in 2014/15 so are hoping to smash that total this financial year.
Pop into any one of the 11 great bars in and around the City of London and show your support...and enjoy a delicious lunch while you're there!

|This film was made in 2014 with the aim of making sure as many people view it as possible to prevent future tragedies. It's now had over 12,000 views on the ALMT YouTube channel and we're working hard forming partnerships with businesses and individuals to get the film as much exposure as possible.
