The Digger Arrives!

Ground Breaking Date Announced

Fiona Devine, CEO and co-founder of Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service has announced that a ground breaking ceremony will take place to mark the start of building work on Berkshire's children's hospice on Wednesday, September 23rd. Founder patron Sir Michael Parkinson will join Fiona and John Devine for the ground breaking in Snowball Hill, Woodlands Park, near Maidenhead.
Fiona said: "The ground breaking ceremony marks the start of a momentous period in the history of Alexander Devine, this moment has been achieved by all our supporters and volunteers and they have been a part of the journey in many forms.
To each and every person that has fundraised for us or supported in kind we salute you and thank you. "After the ground breaking ceremony there will be many opportunities for supporters and members of the public to visit the site or to be invited to special updates at our office regarding the build. We have very limited space on site currently and therefore have had to limit numbers to ground breaking, we very much look forward in the coming months, to welcoming the local community and our friends to the build."

A Million Hugs For Holly

A wonderful new fundraising campaign has been launched by an amazing 13 year old girl who is being supported by Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service. Holly George is a courageous teenager who is looked after by the Alexander’s Care Team. Her two sisters have recently done some fundraising to help us build Berkshire’s children’s hospice and Holly, although poorly, is determined not to be left out, so she is starting a campaign asking people to donate £1 for a virtual hug – 1 Million Hugs For Holly. She has set up a Facebook page HERE and an online giving page HERE. On Twitter Holly is using the hashtag #HugsForHolly and her campaign account on Twitter is @hugsforholly. CLICK HERE for the full story and official poster.

Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service was founded in 2007 with the aim of providing a dedicated children's hospice service for all children with life limiting and life threatening illnesses in Berkshire and beyond.

Families tell us that they find it difficult to find the right support at the right time and we understand that it is the whole family who need to be looked after. Our ultimate aim is to provide well co-ordinated support, which is available from the point of diagnosis for as long a families want, either in the home or in our local hospice.

We currently fund Alexander's Nurses who provide quite unique specialised care and respite by regularly supporting families in their own homes – our service is unique because we work very closely with all our local NHS hospitals so that families receive a 'joined-up service'.
