During 2014 KK Installations have supported the following charities, clubs & individuals.
KK Installations are also a proud supporter and corporate sponsor of Alex’s Wish.
Alex’s Wish is a charity set-up to eradicate Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. The charity was set-up in late 2012 by Alex’s parents Emma and Andy Hallam. The charity name is called after Alex their son (he’s now 8 years old) who was diagnosed with Duchenne in April 2010 when he was just 4 years old. We are a non-profit making charity registered with the Charity Commission (charity no: 1148845) with the sole aim to fund world-class science and clinical trials to bring about a cure or new treatments to help delay symptoms.
