Our 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.
We 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.
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.
The 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.
The work we carry out is done under Cookie’s name and what he stood for whilst he was here with us.
Our first project will be to raise funds in order to provide vein finders to the Chemotherapy wards at the Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy & Cancer wards in the Western General Hospital, Edinburgh.
Taking blood or inserting an IV line was an arduous task for both Christopher and the medical staff involved, this will be just one of our priorities to ensure that no-one else has to endure this harrowing procedure. We would like to be able to introduce this devise to more hospitals but need your help to do so.
