Your WFH savings could make a real difference

If you’re working from home because of COVID-19, then there is one plus side… you’re likely to be saving a bit of money on travel. For many people, that’s an average of £5-£7 per day.

If you’re able to spare it, the money you would have spent on your commute could make a huge difference to the lives of children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, and their families.

So if you can, please consider committing your commute, by donating the equivalent to our children’s hospice service. Every penny you give to us really will support our vital specialist care when it is needed the most.
