Hello Again website

Read about this exciting new project, sponsored by Dan's Fund for Burns, and browse the associated website.

Designed to support young people transitioning from children's burns services, the site aims to provide a helpful source of information for these young people, their parents/carers and health professionals alike.

Take a look at the Feature Article on our Home page, and read some more on our Current News page >>>

Sophie Thompson

Our Patron, Sophie Thompson, continues to keep more than busy. She is playing the role of Captain Hook in Peter Pan at the National Theatre from mid November, so why try to go and see it!


As well as her cooking book "My Family Kitchen", which is hugely entertaining reading, if you are looking for Christmas gifts for 6-7 year olds, try "Zoo Boy", published last year, and her forthcoming "Zoo Boy and the Jewel Thieves"...!

Charitable Bookings

DFFB has recently signed up to Charitable Bookings and, for those of you who enjoy eating out, if you make your reservations through Charitable Bookings, £1 per person goes to the Charity of your choice.

At the same time, IF you have a favourite Restaurant and find it's not listed, if you let Charitable Bookings know they will approach the Restaurant to see if they would be willing to participate.

We will shortly be issued with special cards with the DFFB logo and information - if you would like to have some of these, please contact us at info@dansfundforburns.org


DFFB is sad to inform those interested that, due to the increase in costs and use of email, it has been decided not to print Christmas Cards this year

A BIG THANK YOU to those who have & for those who haven't yet...!

What are you going to do for Dan's Fund for Burns?

There are many ways to participate, for example...

  • you can simply make single or regular donations online by using our JustGiving.Com account which can be accessed through the link in the Fundraising News section on the right
  • if you prefer a more hands on approach, go to the Making donations section of this site and follow the information provided there.


For those of you with a more daring, active and flamboyant streak, your fundraising can be as innovative and as much fun as you want to make it!

Take a look through our Newsletters archive and the Current news section of this site just to catch a flavour of the type of things that have been done before and this might inspire you with some ideas for yourself or your band of fellow supporters.

So many people have performed so many fantastic feats including:

  • climbing Mount Kilimanjaro
  • walking the Great Wall of China
  • running Golf Days, Bridge Parties and Fashion Shows
  • and running Marathons...
    to name but a few!

If you are contemplating a fundraising event then let Dan's Fund for Burns know what you are intending so we can send you any pamphlets and other information you might find useful.

In addition you can download our Sponsorship Form template, and customise it for your event, and/or set up a fundraising page for your event at JustGiving.Com.

Simply use this link to access our account at JustGiving.Com and follow the procedure for creating an online fundraising page of your own.

The process allows you to not only build your page but also email all your friends and contacts to tell them about what you are doing.

They in turn can sponsor you by making their donations online, and you can sit back and watch the total grow whilst you are not frantically running around organising the event or training in readiness for it!

Another thing in your favour, using this method, means no more running around with paper sponsorship forms, or chasing cheques and cash after your event, and all the money goes straight to Dan's Fund For Burns.

What more can we say but HAPPY FUNDRAISING and again A VERY BIG THANK YOU for helping a lot of people enjoy a better quality of life.
