Your support makes all the difference

We know it is hard at the moment to organise and hold events in the community, however there are ways you can still support us in and around your home.

We love seeing the creative ideas that so many of our wonderful supporters of all ages have been coming up with in recent weeks. We’ve had backflipping competitions, scooter challenges, zoom quizzes, baking challenges and even sunflower growing races! 

It’s so simple to organise a sponsored event or activity, here’s how:

We can provide you with resources you might need and information to help you communicate the positive impact your fundraising will have on the lives of local children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, and their families.

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! 👏
