Max Appeal Needs Your Help

We are a small charity with a massive job and we can't run it without your help in raising money and awareness. 

We URGENTLY need your help in fundraising, last year our 22q at the Zoo cost us £3,000 to organise, new member packs cost £10, and our national helpline costs approx. £500 per year amongst many other daily running costs.
