Limetree 2011 is proud to be supporting the following great causes.
The main aim of the charity is the relief, care and treatment of premature, sick newborn babies and their parents in Harrogate district hospital’s maternity and special care baby unit.
The charity was set up in December 2008 in loving memory of Casey Ann Abram Hines.
Angels have run a stall at Limetree every year since 2009, raising funds and awareness and getting into the festival spirit.
The Sophie Lancaster Foundation
Following the horrific murder of Sophie Lancaster, her family wanted to ensure a lasting legacy to their beautiful, bright creative daughter and so The Sophie Lancaster Foundation was established and it became a registered charity in 2009
The aims and objectives of the Charity are as follows:
- To create a lasting legacy to Sophie.
- To provide educational group-works that will challenge the prejudice and intolerance towards people from alternative subcultures.
- To campaign to have the UK Hate Crime legislation extended to include people from “alternative subcultures” or “Lifestyle and Dress”
Our Sansar is a UK-based non-governmental organisation dedicated to eradicating extreme poverty by working in partnership with impoverished communities around the globe
We believe in development that is inclusive, responsive and accountable, and which empowers local communities to realise their rights.
Action On Hearing Loss
Action on Hearing Loss
We are the UK’s largest charity taking action on hearing loss. One part of our work is to campaign to ensure that music lovers are aware that loud music can damage their hearing and the simple ways you can protect yourself.
At Limetree 2011, we will have a stand with good quality earplugs and children’s ear defenders for people to buy so they can enjoy the festival without worrying about damaging their hearing.
Remember, love your ears now so you can enjoy music forever!
