2018

The Manor Cup will be raising money for Laureus and Alexander Devine for a 5th year.

The Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service

The Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service supports children and their families with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions in Berkshire and beyond. The service currently funds Alexander's Nurses who support families across Berkshire in their own homes, providing much needed respite, palliative care, emotional and practical support. Thanks to their tremendous efforts the charity is currently an amazing 80% through building Berkshire's first very own children's hospice for these local families which will be supported by a home care team. 

The Laureus Sport for Good Foundations

The Laureus Sport for Good Foundation's vice chairman Sean Fitzpatrick states 'we cant change the world but we can build bridges'. The cause uses sport as means to meet its goal of helping young people overcome the limitations imposed by challenging social issues including poverty, homelessness, war, violence, drug abuse, discrimination and AIDS. To do this Laureus supports and assists a Uk and worldwide program of sports related community projects that have been working to educate children, protect the vulnerable from illness and even bring people from divided communities together in friendship for over ten years.

In 2016 the Manor Cup raised over £150,000.00 for Ric Lewis and his Black Heart Foundation, as well as continuing to support our established charities of the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation and the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service.

The Black Heart Foundation

The Black Heart Foundation distributes grants and engages in fundraising to support a number of community initiatives that provide benefits or improve educational outcomes for disadvantaged young people. The Foundation has a particular interest in children’s health and well-being, and in the use of sport to inspire and engage youth on the path to greater educational achievement. The Black Heart Foundation’s relationship to the sporting world is also an important creative resource for its work and facilitates some of its key fundraising endeavours. All of The Foundation’s supported programmes and institutions provide a variety of educational environments for children and young people whose challenges arise for diverse reasons, such as socio-economic disadvantage and physical or cognitive disability.

The Founder, Chairman and custodian of The Foundation, Ric Lewis brings his team of ‘Black Hearts’ back to defend The Manor Cup.

2015

This year we will be raising money for two charities with the addition of the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service.

Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service which supports children and their families with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions in Berkshire and beyond.
The service currently funds Alexander's Nurses who support families across Berkshire in their own homes, providing much needed respite, palliative care, emotional and practical support. It is working towards building Berkshire's first very own children's hospice for these local families which will be supported by a home care team.

We will also be continuing our support for The Laureus Sport for Good Foundation's goal is to help young people overcome the limitations imposed by challenging social issues including poverty, homelessness, war, violence, drug abuse, discrimination and AIDS. To do this Laureus supports and assists a worldwide programme of sports related community projects that have been working to educate children, protect the vulnerable from illness and even bring people from divided communities together in friendship for over ten years.

In 2015 we raised over £86,000  through donations and charity auction.

2014

Sport has always played a large role in both our lives. The life lessons of being in a team, competing as an individual, having a commitment and purpose, encouraging others, learning how to win and lose are incredibly valuable. Having seen a hip hop dance troupe performing in Singapore comprised of a group of street kids from Cambodia we were convinced of the huge impact sport can have on a child's life. So Laureus Sport For Good was a very good fit.

The Laureus Sport for Good Foundation uses the positive power of sport to tackle society's most pressing challenges around the globe and supports projects in many countries, including the UK. Support comes in three forms: funding, training and strategic counsel to ensure each project can provide the best possible opportunities to promote social change within their communities. With 46 absolute sporting icons involved, the uplifting influence on the many children involved in the projects is immense.

In 2014 we raised over £76,000 through donations and charity auction.

2013

In 2013, in addition to supporting the Laureus Foundation, we also raised money for Jamie Oliver's Food Foundation.

The more we read about food, the more you realise what a huge impact it has on our health. Jamie Oliver's Food Foundation is an education charity on a mission to keep cooking skills alive. Food is at the heart of everything they do. There are three main areas: in schools, where they help to educate children about the joys of growing and cooking fresh food and give them a skill for a lifetime; through the Fifteen Apprentice Programme, where they empower disengaged young people by training them for careers in the restaurant industry; and in communities, where cooking centres inspire individuals to get back into the kitchen by giving them the confidence to cook tasty and nutritious food from scratch. They are also encouraging schools to provide healthier lunches for schoolchildren.

In total, in 2013 we raised £27,000 split between the Laureus Foundation and Jamie Oliver's Food Foundation‎.

Thank you to all our friends for making this possible.
