LATCH relies entirely on the generous donations and fundraising activities of volunteers, with no paid fundraisers, and we’re very proud to have one of the smallest administration expenses, proportionately, of any UK based charity.
LATCH commits to spending every penny wisely with the sole aim of supporting children receiving treatment for cancer or leukaemia as well as their families and we’re proud of our Trustees who receive no remuneration or benefits for their work, operating in an entirely voluntary capacity.
2016 was one of LATCH’s most successful years on record, with a record total income which came as a result of very significant bequests received during the year for which we are enormously grateful. This income will allow the charity to put forward ambitious plans for years 2017 and 2018 and we’re very excited about sharing our plans with you in the coming months.

The charity’s total expenditure for 2016 is as follows:
