The Golden Lion Children’s Trust is a charity dedicated to providing hope, help and happiness to children with special needs and disadvantaged young people. The Trust maintains its links with Gatwick Airport, where the roots of the Trust began, but can reach out to a much wider field thanks to the many supporters and volunteers we have.
The charity has remained independent of any other charitable institutions and is completely self-financing. The Golden Lion Children’s Trust also remains independent of any regular corporate sponsorship although the generosity and support of companies large and small mainly from around Gatwick Airport and from the South of England remain the major source of our funding.
The Golden Lion Children’s Trust differs from many other charities in so much as we never make donations of money to specific organisations. Our “donations” consist of the provision of services, goods and more usually activities for the children.
