Who We Are:
A World With Friends is the new name for the charity Friend Finder. The Charity was founded 3 years ago 18 year old Lewis Hine.Lewis was diagnosed with a Brain Tumour, Hydrocephalus and drug resistant Epilepsy. Years of treatment left Lewis feeling isolated and alone. He set up the charity as a way for all young people living with chronic illness or disability to make friends.
What We Do:
We hold regular events around the Country including Proms, Skiing, Fishing, Cocktail making and much more. We have already helped thousands of children in the UK to make friends. Every year we hold a big Prom at the Portsmouth Guildhall where we invite hundreds of young people living with chronic illness, disability or those who are isolated from others and need help to find any make friends. They get to experience a magical dream night and truly feel part of something.
Why We Need You:
Lewis wants to build A World With Friends. A World With Friends will be a 3D virtual world where children will be able to use their avatars to meet-up, talk, laugh and have fun. To drop a screen app and watch the latest film release or football match together. The platform’s objective is to support their mental health, self-esteem and give them something to look forward to and feel in control of their own life. An online world where there are no barriers of language or distance or ability a world where the unique come together and make friends. Lewis’s vision of a 3D virtual world where they can be friends with other sick children around the world. Makes life accessible for children unable to be part of the outside world. It will help their mental health, self esteem and give them something to look forward to. It brings life and most importantly it brings friends and hope to them at a time in their lives when they need it the most.

Non-partnered charities at GoSkydive offer a unique opportunity to make a positive impact while experiencing the exhilaration of skydiving. These charities, though not officially affiliated with GoSkydive, collaborate to raise funds and awareness for various causes. Participants can choose a cause close to their hearts and raise money individually or as part of a team, diving headfirst into an adrenaline-fuelled adventure that also helps those in need.
Our non-partnered charities still receive the same great discount of £25 off a 10,000ft or 15,000ft skydive that our partnered charities do. All you need to do is pay the balance of your skydive yourself and fundraise as much as you can for your chosen charity on the side!
