Donate your leftover currency to Ruth Strauss Foundation

In early 2018, Ruth Strauss, wife of Sir Andrew Strauss the former England cricket captain, was diagnosed with an incurable lung cancer that affects non-smokers. Ruth died on December 29th December 2018; she was 46 years old and mother to two children. In her memory, Sir Andrew launched the Ruth Strauss Foundation.


The Ruth Strauss Foundation’s mission is to help families access professional emotional support when facing the death of a parent and drive the need for more research & collaboration in the fight against non-smoking lung cancers.


More than 41,000 children under the age of 18 are affected by the loss of a parent each year in the UK. Your donations will help us to support families facing one of life’s toughest tests.
