Thank you for visiting our website, we are very proud to present to you The Lewis Jeynes Fund which was set up to care for Lewis Jeynes and other children like him who are all suffering from undiagnosed neurologically degenerative conditions which are life limiting and in some cases fatal.
Lewis himself is the star of the show, he is a very brave chap (you can see him in the photo's above receiving a bravery award from Prince Harry in 2007) and has dealt with his degenerating condition since the age of 2 when he became ill and began to lose the use of his physical abilities. He is now completely reliant on his parents, his carers, his brother, the NHS, the local council and his Fund which provides financial assistance and happiness for him and other children in similar positions.
If you would like to help Lewis's mission to keep him and his friends cared for and happy please donate, buy an item or attend one of the many events we arrange nationally.
Thank you in advance for your support and care.
The Lewis Jeynes Fund
