Buttercup Children's Trust have been nominated and successfully chosen to be one of John Lewis York's community matters charities for the next 3 months. Customers will be given a green token after every transaction, and then given the chance to vote for which charity they would like a share of £3000 to be donated to. The period runs from April 10th 2015 to July 10th 2015.

Urgent appeal for 2 year old who has been diagnosed with MPS I Hurler Disease. This is a rare, genetic, progressive disease which is life limiting and has no cure. His family have managed to raise funds for a final family holiday to Disney Land Paris. Buttercup Children's Trust has been able to help the family with the extortionate travel insurance they must pay before the trip.

Would like to say a huge thank you to the team at Totality GCS
www.totalitygcs.co.uk for designing the new logo for Buttercup Children's Trust.
