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...

Our gardening club volunteers took delivery of a very special gift this month - a fantastic John Deere sit on mower, which was very generously donated to us by Farol Ltd.

Matt Vellacott, Managing Director at Farol, told us "we are very pleased and proud to help such a worthy cause.”

The new mower was delivered by Farol Twyford's Manager, Barry Sharp. He kindly spent the morning with our volunteers giving them a tutorial on looking after it and showing them how to use it.

Children and families love using the outside space at our beautiful hospice and the new mower will make it so much easier to maintain our grounds for them to enjoy.

Thank you Matt, Barry and all at Farol for your wonderful and generous donation, it really will make a world of difference.

Well done to these Spartan heroes! 💪

We are so proud of the team from OpenText office in Reading who took on the mighty Spartan Obstacle Race in Henley earlier this month.

For those unfamiliar with Spartan races, they are obstacle courses that test speed, strength and endurance. The OpenText team had to conquer 20 off-road obstacles, including climbing walls, crawling under wire, traversing monkey bars, spear throws and of course lots of mud!

An amazing challenge and they managed to raise over £725! 👏
