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.

Just one day of an average commute cost could pay for a bespoke craft bag so our nurses can provide activities for a child in the community

The average cost of a week’s commute could help pay for for a community respite visit for one of our families

A month’s average commute could help fund two specialist play sessions for siblings in the community

Your support really matters...

Playtime just got more magical at our hospice!✨

Thank you so much to Lifelites for their latest donation of assistive and inclusive technology to help enrich the lives of the children and young people that we support.

Today Lifelites has been training members of Alexander’s Care Team on how to use all the new equipment and toys including Eyegaze which helps children with limited movement or restricted speech communicate and take control for themselves, using just the movement of their eyes. With most of the equipment easily portable, it means there are no limits to where and when we can play!

It was wonderful to be joined by some of our families to celebrate the donation of this new technology and, of course, have a play!

We are so grateful to the National Lottery Awards for helping to fund the important development of our Family Support programme.

The increased need to develop our Family Support programme has been driven by an increasing number of children with complex needs and a rising number of bereaved families. Thanks to National Lottery Awards’ generous donation of £9,250, we are able to widen the support we can give families including the recruitment of our Family Support Worker, parent group meetings and special events such as our remembrance days.
