Charity of the Year 2020
In 2020 we are pleased to be supporting
Jessie May – Children’s Hospice at Home.
Here is a little more information about them:
This wonderful charity provides children with life-limiting conditions and their families with care, support and advocacy. Since Jessie May began in 1996, it has supported over 300 children and their families all across the South West region including Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire.
This charity is nearly wholly reliant on donations, to provide the care which is obtained through University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust. Assisting children to be empowered whilst having these life-limiting conditions and allowing them dignity in their homes when the time comes is extremely expensive, so they always need assistance in fundraising to enable this level of care. Support is also provided for up to 5 years post bereavement. In 2019, 140 children and their families were being assisted and 50 supported through their bereavement programme.
Alternatively, if you fancy fundraising, there are many ways to support Jessie May, all available to view on the fundraising section of their website.Please take a look at their website for further information: Jessie May
