As Prime Minister he enlarged and improved social services and the public sector in post-war Britain, creating the National Health Service and nationalising major industries and public utilities .

Attlee lived locally whilst he was MP for Walthamstow West

 

House Charity

Lennox Children's cancer fund provide direct practical, financial and emotional assistance to not just the children, but also their parents and siblings families. Something that not many other organisations or charities do.

This could be as simple as paying an electric bill for a family who spend all their time caring for a sick child and are unable to earn an income at the same time. It could be to cover travel expenses to enable a child to receive life-saving treatment, or even just to provide a little cash for a dying child to have that final birthday celebration with family and friends.

Lennox also offers respite breaks for children and their families to spend some time away from the burden and trauma of cancer. These breaks are an opportunity for the whole family to escape the treatment, hospitals and doctors and spend quality time together.
