Quentin Blake is President of Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity. It began as the Roald Dahl Foundation in 1991, and was set up to help children and young people with serious, rare blood or brain conditions. The Charity funds a team of specialist 'Roald Dahl' nurses, providing vital support and care in these areas thoughout the UK.
Farms for City Children
Farms for City Children aims to enrich the lives and develop the potential of children from urban areas by giving them the opportunity to become farmers for a week on a working farm in the heart of the countryside. The Charity was founded by Clare and Michael Morpurgo over forty years ago and now, on three different farms, provides this experience for over 3,000 children a year.
