So far, thanks to your generosity we have raised:
The Douglas Bader Foundation exists to advance and promote the physical, mental and spiritual welfare of persons who are born without or have lost one or more limbs, or otherwise physically disabled.
They achieve this through giving advice via BILL, or helping out financially through Bader Grants. Their Bader Braves programme offers children experiences that help build confidence and encourage team work and participation.
A disabled person who fights back is not disabled….but inspired
This is this maxim that their charitable foundation, established in Sir Douglas Bader’s name immediately following his death in 1982, seeks to replicate and develop.
The Douglas Bader Foundation was formed by family and friends, many of whom had flown side by side with Douglas during World War 2.
