America is a big place and when children get sick, the right help can be a long long way away. We are making our donation specifically to help the familes of the children with cancer with the cost of this travel. We hope that it makes a horrible journey just a little easier.
The Grape Foundation is happy to announce that we are making donations to Association REVES in France and Alex's Lemonade stand in America. Reves gives very unwell children the chance to have a 'Dream Holiday' and very much hopes that it is not there last. We chose to support this activity due to the smiles it creates for children. So here we go!

The team have this to say to us all 'Paul and Friends, Thank you so much for the exceptionally generous donation to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for childhood cancer. Just in the last two weeks, we have lost two of our Heroes (children with cancer) and we feel we cannot work fast or hard enough to find cures for the brutal disease. Support like yours encourage us that we are not alone in the battle to cure all childhood cancers; like our founder, Alex Scott, believed. Thank you and take very good care.'

Meet Gerald his wife and daughter Roma...
Gerald and his family live in the village ravaged by the Tsunami in 2001. Unfortunately their village has not really changed since then except the repairs the village has made themselves to their homes and the eight foot wall the government have built between them and the beach. To be honest, not the ideal solution for a group of people that historically have made a living from the sea. Gerald is a TUK TUK driver and a devotee of the local church of St.Joseph. His daily earnings of around 5 GDP are what this family of three survive on.
Roma is a wonderful, smiling, happy little girl, a real pleasure to be around and as such, we are all going to help her. more to follow...
We want to thank every supporter of the Grape Foundation - we can think of no finer place to do it than in the pages of the World of Fine Wine. Please look out for the December issue and hear our biggest of Thank You's within.
'We are proud to be a part of this noble cause, a cause that directly echoes the principles of The Primum Familiae Vini'.

United Kingdom Wine Consultants is proud to support The Grape Foundation.
to see how we may be able to support you!
For every case of wine we produce as an industry, there is a child somewhere in the world without a smile, without a meal, without a mother or father, without love. This should never be.
The Grape Foundation is our foundation, the whole wine world working together charitably to put smiles on the faces of children that need it, to put food into tummies that are without it, to save a life where we can. What could be more important?
The drinks industry and indeed wine is often given negative press due to its misuse and even abuse, but we know how loving, close and caring most wine communities are. Wine is made following centuries of tradition of people working together, tirelessly; to achieve something they are really proud of.
The Grape Foundation was formed to reflect these positive sentiments and demonstrate how, as an industry, we really do care both about what we do, each other and, of course, children in need.
Together we are: The Wine World's Children's Charity
