David and Victoria Beckham have donated over £1million (US$1.5 million) to help children in the last five years through their charity.

The Victoria and David Beckham Charitable Trust was set up by the couple to support initiatives for sick and disabled children. Past charities supported include UNICEF and organizations which help disabled children, such as those which provide wheelchairs to those in need.

Although donations to the Trust have fallen by £90,000 in the last year, the charity still gives to good causes.

“To have raised so much money and helped so many people is amazing,” said managing director David Watling. “Some of these wheelchairs can cost £10,000 and they are life-changing.”
