Marmalade Foundation is proud to be able to help two charities very close to our heart - After Umbrage and Anna’s Hope.
Funds are contributed to these causes from Marmalade itself and from Marmalade Network members.
We find on occasions that instructors don’t wish to receive the commission they earn from insurance policies their pupils take out through Provisional Marmalade Ltd. In that case, and provided the instructor is registered with Marmalade Network, any funds that would have been earned by them are paid direct to Marmalade Foundation. Subsequently After Umbrage and Anna’s Hope receive this money and the great thing is that Marmalade Foundation matches these donations pound for pound!
After Umbrage was founded in 2013 and it is our mission to care for carers.
We offer FREE four day breaks in our self-catering cottages in tranquil and comfortable surroundings. The breaks help to give carers a chance to rest and re-charge before returning to their unpaid caring roles for their loved ones living with life limiting and terminal conditions.
Our beneficiaries tell us how they feel less alone knowing there is a charity that cares for those who care. They also say their wellbeing gets a 100% boost after their cottage break.
This offer is also available during the first year of bereavement, which we know is a very difficult time.
After Umbrage helps carers create lasting fond memories with their families giving them the energy to continue their vital role for their loved ones, communities and the UK economy.
Don’t just take our word for it.
You can read about our beneficiaries’ stories on our blog on the News & Events page. Welcome to our world of caring for carers!
Anna’s Hope was inspired by Anna Hughes who sadly lost her battle to a brain tumour aged only 3.
Brain tumours are the largest cancer killer of children and for those who survive their lives can be significantly impacted
The charity helps children diagnosed with a brain tumour reach their full potential through pioneering specialist neuro- rehabilitation.
Every penny the charity receives helps make a difference now.
