Our partners

Barclays

A collaboration with Barclays to host a charity event saw the bank match donations, raising a total of £3800!

"I recently held a joint golf day with Lepra and they were brilliant; I invited the majority of the attendees but Olivia from Lepra took care of all of the admin. Lepra designed the invite, took payment, organised raffle prizes and generally made sure everything was in place for a great day, which everyone enjoyed.”

Barclays Business Manager Steve of the North Essex Business Team

Cantata Dramatica

Cantata Dramatica is a charity dedicated to commissioning and promoting new music. The charity commissioned four new pieces of music to be performed at St Wallbrooks church in London. Each piece linked to themes associated with leprosy, such as people fighting to have their voices heard and the challenges faced by women with the disease. All ticket and sponsorship proceeds went to Lepra.

Co-op

Co-operative shops across several Towns have helped fundraise by having Lepra donation pots visible at their checkouts. Not only has this helped to raise money for people affected by leprosy, but it has also helped us to raise awareness across the UK that the disease still exists.

Haddenham Healthcare

"We first got to hear about Lepra's amazing work when I met two of the staff at the British Lymphology conference. Rajni's presentation at the conference brought home the huge problem which exists in India surrounding lymphatic filariasis. We wanted to do something to help and donating our specialist compression garments was just one way we could support Lepra's work. The feedback we received from Rajni reporting on the successful outcome for people using our garments was heart-warming."   Haddenham Healthcare logo

Jamie Chadwick

Jamie Chadwick, the first ever woman to win a Formula 3 race, has helped to raise awareness of Lepra’s work in India, Bangladesh and Mozambique. By highlighting the difficulties people with leprosy face to her followers on social media, Jamie has helped us to connect with younger generations. She was also the special guest for Lepra and the Minerva Trust’s joint Female Focus event, designed to bring inspiring businesswomen together.

Minerva Trust

The Minerva Trust is committed to contributing to society and making a difference. Partnering with Lepra Female focus event in London, the Minerva Trust have helped us to build new relationships and raise awareness of the hardships impoverished women-affected by leprosy can endure while seeking the treatment they desperately need.

Pavers


Pavers, the York-based comfort shoe retailer funded our first ever mobile foot care unit in India. It travels around the Indian state of Bihar providing custom-made shoes for people affected by leprosy and lymphatic filariasis (LF).

People affected by the two diseases can lose feeling in parts of their body, including their feet. When a person loses sensation, they can develop injuries without even realising it, which can lead to infection. Foot care is exceptionally important in the rehabilitation process and custom-made shoes enable those who have lost sensation in their feet to restore a sense of normality, independence and lower the risk of infection.

Pavers funding this van has been vital in allowing us to deliver some of our life-changing work.

Voyages to Antiquity

Voyages to Antiquity is a specialist cruise operator that tailors on-board lecture programmes delivered by guest speakers, to provide an understanding of the history, culture and natural wonders of the places they visit. The company worked in collaboration with Lepra ambassador, Victoria Hislop, author of the international best seller- ‘The Island’.

During a cruise to Spinalonga, home of the former Greek leprosy colony at the heart of Hislop’s novel, she will speak about Lepra’s work and her involvement with the charity. Literature about the disease will be placed in all cabins, and a film by Lepra will feature on the ship’s channels.

Voyages to Antiquity have also committed to donating a percentage of the price of each ticket to Lepra.
