Jonny has utilised his profile over his career to support a number of charities. Those closest to his heart include:
The Neonatal Unit at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle upon Tyne specialises in saving babies' lives. Every year, 600 premature or ill newborn babies are admitted to the hospital from across the North East, with up to 30 babies being looked after at any one time.
Dreamflight is a registered UK charity that changes young lives through taking seriously ill and disabled children, without their parents, on the holiday of a lifetime to Orlando, Florida.
Sadly, there are children and young people across the UK who do not have a happy childhood. They can experience a range of problems, from neglect to serious sexual abuse. The NSPCC's vision is to end cruelty to children in the UK. The NSPCC has been at the frontline of child protection for over 125 years, listening to children, fighting for their rights, helping them when they need someone and making them safe.
Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust
Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust (SDBTT) is the largest adult and childhood brain tumour charity in the UK. We are the largest dedicated funder of brain tumour research in the UK; we run a dedicated national helpline for anyone living with, or affected by, a brain tumour; and we raise awareness to ensure early diagnosis and treatment for everyone affected by a brain tumour. Since the charity was set up in 1996 we’ve raised £10m for our vital work.
