How much does it cost to run LATCH?
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 costs, 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.
The cost of running LATCH, however, has risen to over £700,000 per year which highlights just how essential every penny our supporters raise is to us so that we are able to maintain our support for children and their families.
This is how LATCH spends the money that our fundraisers have generated:
