Charitable Trusts and Foundations

Support the vital work of our children’s hospice service

We are proud of the strong partnerships we have established with many trusts and foundations over the years and are keen to develop new relationships with funders who share our aims.  

The generosity of charitable trusts and foundations has made a significant impact on the development of our service over the years. From funding for specific services, equipment, salaries and resources, we are hugely grateful to them for helping us in our mission to reach out to every child and family that needs us.

This December we want to share with you some of the different ways we bring comfort and joy to the children and families that we support, all thanks to your support.

It's Day 1 and look who's behind today's door...

Life for Harry is very different to most children his age. 5 year old Harry was born with a rare neurological condition called Moebius syndrome. It means he can’t smile, blink or move his eyes. He is also very weak and can’t sit up or walk. He struggles to swallow so is fed through a peg tube.

Harry’s family are determined to make sure Harry has every opportunity to experience things other children his age do. And visits to our hospice do just that. As well as an opportunity for much-needed respite for his parents, it is also the chance for Harry to have fun, whether that is splashing in the pool, playing in the playground or enjoying music therapy.

You can help continue to bring comfort and joy to children like Harry by donating to our Christmas Appeal ➡www.alexanderdevine.org/christmas
