Our Story

Sweetpea Charity was founded by the parents of Milly in 2009. Milly was brain damaged at birth and as a result was profoundly disabled.

Following Milly’s death, aged nine in 2008, her parents set up The Sweetpea Charitable Trust (working name Sweetpea Charity) to relieve sickness and preserve and protect the good health of children up to 18 years of age living in the United Kingdom. To ensure that children in similar situations to Milly could be supported and enabled to live life to the best of their abilities. To ensure that children were able to thrive and be happy. Every child deserves happiness. read more
