About British Lung Foundation

Support us with a Breath of Life Tribute Fund

One in five of us has problems with our breathing. Millions more are at risk. We’re the only UK charity looking after the nation’s lungs.

We offer hope, help and a voice.

Our research finds new ways to prevent, treat and cure lung disease.

Our support gives people who struggle to breathe the skills, knowledge and confidence to take control of their lives.

And together, we’re campaigning for clean air and better services.

With your support through a Breath of Life Fund, one day everyone will breathe clean air with healthy lungs.

Your stories

We would like to say a big thank you and well done, to Peter and Simon Ablard who completed The Illuminator Run to raise money for Ann Ablard’s Breath of Life fund. This is Scotland’s toughest half marathon, over rugged hill trails in the pitch darkness and they completed it in 2hrs 23mins and 2hrs 46mins respectively! Along with other donations made in loving memory of Ann they have raised over £5000!

Thank You

As a way of saying thank you for your continued support we offer to dedicate a tree in memory of your loved one if the Breath of Life fund reaches £2,000, and at £5,000 we offer to name a star in memory. We hope this acts as a lasting tribute for you and your family. Please contact us when your fund is near these targets.
