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.

26 incredible volunteers 💪
460 🎄 trees collected
...and over £8,500 raised! 🙌

A MASSIVE thank you to everyone that generously supported our Christmas Tree Recycling service this year. In particular, our amazing team of volunteers who braved the wet and cold weather to collect trees from people's homes and take them to be recycled.

All the trees were taken to Berkshire College of Agriculture for recycling into chippings and are already being used with their zoo animals on site.

As well as being good for the environment, we also love that our recycling service enables us to support other local charities. As part of our service, which is run in partnership with JustHelping, we are able to nominate a local charity to receive 10% of our donations. We are delighted to choose 18th Maidenhead Scouts, who are always incredibly supportive of our charity.

What a wonderful way to kick-start 2022! 💙💛

From dress up days and danceathons, to blue bake sales, raffles and even a blue treasure hunt, we had such a blast in 2021 and we could not have done it without all our amazing local businesses, schools and supporters.

Fancy rocking the blue with us this year? 💙
