The Breeze Kids Trust is celebrating the help it's giving 4 causes through grants this year.

The Breeze Kids Trust has awarded four grants to families and organisations to help children in Hampshire. This year we awarded over £7,000 to the following beneficiaries:

- Mark Peters on behalf of the Federation of Winklebury Schools.
- Carly King for her daughter Emmy and the fundraising of Ready Emmy Walk.
- Emma Grantham for her dream of playing at Wimbledon.
- Paul Burgess for his 24 hour walk fundraiser for The Muffins Dream Foundation and Frankie O'Connor. 

We spoke to the people behind the grants to find out what the money really means to them:

The aim of the Breeze Kids Trust Charity is:

  • to relieve poverty or hardship of families with children.
  • to promote the physical or mental welfare of families with children in need of care and attention.
  • to improve the lives of individual families with children and children's groups living in our area.

We do this by providing donations to drive education, health, welfare, ability and opportunity.
