the-main-man-cookieThe work that The Cookie Jar carries out represents the personality of Christopher “Cookie” Coutts. Christopher was taken from us at the age of 19 after a valiant fight with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer. 

Christopher acted as an inspiration to all who knew him; not only with his fight against cancer but with other mental and learning disabilities he faced in his day-to-day life. The role of the Cookie Jar is to continue Christopher’s legacy and to help provide the necessary tools to those who are in need.

AIMS & AMBITIONS

The Cookie Jar is a not-for profit foundation established to help meet funding requirements for a wide range of notable beneficiaries. We are a bespoke foundation, with ability to recognise notable niches that need to be filled within funding..

rainbow-sky-cloudsOur main aim is to provide support to both children and those in need of help, whether it be in hospital, educational or community based environment.

rainbow-sky-cloudsWe as a foundation look to work in partnership with other charities and notable organisations that have the same principles as the cookie jar. Charities and other established not for profit organisations may also request funding from The Cookie Jar.

balloonsThe shortfall of funding within the education system for certain resources is something that The Cookie Jar Foundation will look at providing assistance. Young people who have additional educational support needs can often suffer from a lack of support from the educational system due to inadequate budgets.  We want to be able to assist in providing such aid to ensure the young person can achieve to the best of their individual abilities.

balloonsThe Cookie jar is not all about funding however. The foundation looks to work closely with those who are in need of our help. We currently have a track car that will be used at a Fife based racing circuit. It is hoped that this track car will provide the opportunity for young adults to fulfil ambitions, or indeed to motivate young adults to stay clear of trouble and find an ambition that compliments their dreams.

balloonsDuring his fight against Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Christopher had to overcome many hurdles in order to come to terms with his many weeks of hospitalisation.  One of those hurdles would be his phobia against needles, especially when there was great difficulty in trying to find veins….. on the plus side he was always delighted to be visited by Moira,  the Holistic Therapist who works at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh.

Statement

We will be guided by our memory of Christopher as to what he spoke about improving during his time in hospital, and will be looking at providing funds for such things holistic treatments for patients and their families, helping the Young Persons Group based in the Maggie’s Centre Edinburgh enjoy their activities and of course looking at ways to ease the suffering of trying to find a working veins by sourcing and funding new technology.
