Pedal Power!

Upton House Nursery pupils once again took to their scooters and bikes for their annual charity pedal push and this year raised a record amount of over £6,330!

47 pupils took part in the event and Sue Bish, Head of Early Years at Upton House, praised the determination of all those involved:

“Taking part in the Nursery Pedal Push has become an annual event since it started in 2004. The children are always very excited to bring their bicycles and scooters in to school to show their friends and to experience riding around the course.

 

The sun was shining this year, despite the rainy start to the day, and the children were able to take part happily enjoying the music which added to the atmosphere. Plenty of balloons showed the children the route around the course and all the children took time and care displaying great spatial awareness. Any small crashes were met with determination and perseverance as the children brushed themselves off and got back on their bike to complete the 10 laps.

 

Congratulations go to all participants for such a wonderful achievement.”

Need our help?

The word hospice should not seem scary and getting support from us doesn’t have to mean a child’s death is imminent. Helping to enrich the lives of the children and their families is at the heart of our service, our end of life and bereavement support is just a part of what we do.

Our children’s hospice service covers the whole of Berkshire and into surrounding counties. If you think your child may be eligible for our services, please do get in touch.

We’re delighted to have received a grant from Marks and Spencer as part of their Gifts that Give campaign this Christmas. This wonderful donation will help fund lots of festive fun and activities for children and their siblings we support.

The grant was all thanks to M&S teaming up with Neighbourly Foundation to give donations to 1,000 small charities and community groups in the UK and Ireland.

Spread some Christmas kindness ⭐️

We were privileged to provide end of life care for beautiful baby Joshua and his family at our children’s hospice.

Joshua was just 7 weeks old when he sadly died.

For our Christmas appeal this year his parents, Emma and Peter Lowe, bravely share his story. They hope in doing so that they can “spread kindness to other families who will face tragedy like us. We want to make sure these families are not alone and will have the invaluable support given to us by Alexander Devine.”

Your kindness this Christmas can help us be there for more precious children like Joshua: alexanderdevine.enthuse.com/cf/christmasappeal2022
