Bowel Cancer Guernsey was formed in 2001 originally under the name of The Guernsey Bowel Cancer Awareness Charity, it was rebranded in 2013 and became a company limited by guarantee in 2015.
Bowel Cancer Guernsey aims to improve awareness, prevention and diagnosis of bowel cancer within the Bailiwick of Guernsey and all monies raised for and by the charity are spent locally. A healthy lifestyle and regular exercise all go towards reducing the risk of bowel cancer.
The Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation was set up by three times World Touring Car Champion Andy Priaulx MBE and his wife Jo in 2003 following the premature births of both their children. The Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation is committed to supporting premature babies, children and their families in times of need.
Our principal aim is to raise money to assist the local neonatal unit and to provide support to the families of premature babies. Whilst this is still our main objective, we are managing a flat in Southampton and also preparing for the opening of our very own property for families to stay in whilst their children are being treated in the UK.
We also support families of children who are seriously ill or suffering life-threatening conditions.
