Our charity fundraising for this year will concentrate on the Precious Lives Appeal, in aid of the Children’s Hospice South West. This amazing organisation has been providing care and respite to families from across the South West of England for over 13 years firstly at Little Bridge House, North Devon, and more recently at Charlton Farm, North Somerset. Plans are now in place to extend this world class service into Cornwall. A hospice in Cornwall will offer more choice to families across the South West on which hospice they choose to use. It will also provide a place closer to home for many families from Cornwall and Plymouth, who may find the journey to Little Bridge House and Charlton Farm too far, or would just be happier using a hospice closer to home and friends and family.
Children’s Hospice South West’s Precious Lives Appeal has been set up to fund the build of this much needed third hospice for the South West of England. Their target is to raise £5 million and the Precious Lives Appeal has already exceeded £1.6 million since its launch in September 2007. If your business would also like to get involved in raising money, please contact the Precious Lives Appeal Manager, Emma Lloyd, at the Truro office on 01872 26 11 66.
