You’ll be helping children like Keanu

By joining us for our Heaven Sent Ball, you’ll be doing something amazing. Not only is it a wonderful night out, but it will also fund vital and specialist care for children like Keanu.

Shortly after Keanu was born he sadly caught meningitis that lead to severe swelling in his brain. Now two years old, his ongoing complex medical condition means he needs a lot of additional support. Alexander Devine is there to help the family as much as it can, providing much-needed respite, nursing care and specialist play.




Will you join us this year and help make sure more children and families like Keanu’s get the help they need?

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.
