Beautiful little Ted was diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive cancer when he was 8 months old. He went through several cycles of chemotherapy and a huge 11 hour surgery to remove the tumour, but the cancer was simply too aggressive. Despite everything Ted had been through, he passed away on April 9th, 2022 aged just 16 months old.
To honour their incredible little boy's memory, Ted's family decided to start a charity based around all of their happiest memories with Ted, and created The Little Ted Foundation. Ted's legacy supports families across the UK with seriously ill children, and bereaved families who have lost a child by offering Grants & Getaways when families need them most.
Every donation helps us to support families with a child in hospital long term with our Help in Hospital Grants, and to put smiles on the faces of seriously ill children with our Memory Making Grants and Getaways.
Nestled in the foothills of Mount Snowdon, Little Ted's Lodge sits on the immaculate country & coastal retreat of Brynteg Holiday Park. Whether you choose to relax at the lodge, walk the mountain trails, explore the rugged coastline of North Wales, or make use of the beautiful on-site swimming pool & spa, Little Ted's Lodge provides plenty of ways for you to relax and fill your time, away from the stresses and strains of home life.FIND OUT MORE
The costs associated with being in hospital & caring for a seriously ill child quickly build up. Unexpected costs such as food, car parking & additional fuel, all coming at a time when finances are often already stretched, add further stresses during such worrying times for parents. Our Help in Hospital Grants are available to help alleviate some of the financial pressures associated with a child's stay in hospital of 10 days or more, and likely to remain an inpatient for some timeFIND OUT MORE
We are proud to be able to offer families caring for a seriously ill child a grant to pay for a special trip or day out together. Families are often separated for weeks, sometimes months, when a child is seriously ill in hospital. When treatment allows, it is important for them to make the most of every moment together. With our Memory Maker Grants, our aim is to help as many families as possible create priceless memories.FIND OUT MORE
"It’s hard to take the children somewhere and feel at peace. I managed to spend lovely quality time with them and they loved being there! For me, the location is truly beautiful and a breath of fresh air! It was nice to be surrounded by nature. I am grateful for being able to take them to make such precious memories. Thank you so much to you all at The Little Ted Foundation for having this available and doing all you guys do!"
