CLEFT is focused on providing permanent, sustainable ways to improve cleft care both in the UK and overseas. Broadly speaking, they can be described in two categories. Firstly through sponsorship of research projects in the UK to help identify the likely causes of clefts and secondly, by supporting projects in lower-income countries to help provide long-term treatment and care for less privileged people born with clefts.

I enjoy doing the Great North Run and thought this year it would be a great opportunity to raise funds for CLEFT.

Any donation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Vicky Tarren
