Our 2016 International Charity – Motivation

Backwell Festival

Our 2016 International Charity – Motivation

This year our international charity is Motivation, a truly wonderful organisation, nestling quietly in the local countryside but making a determined and dramatic impact all over the world.

For the last 25 years, Motivation has been empowering disabled people globally, not only by giving them physical freedom, but also by advising on health and rights. Their story is both heart warming and inspiring.

UK AID is currently supporting Motivation’s “When I Grow Up Appeal” for children in Uganda,which means for every pound you donate during the festival, the UK Government will put in a pound too. So please use this opportunity to make an even bigger difference.

You can read about the charity and the appeal on their website motivation.org.uk  but there’s also a fabulous visual history of the charity here:
