A gift in your Will could change the life of a child

Thank you for considering leaving a gift in your Will to Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service. Through Alexander’s legacy, together we can continue to provide our specialist care and lifeline support for generations to come.

The power to make difference

We understand that when writing your Will your loved ones must come first. But not only could your Will help secure your family’s future, it could also help ensure the future of Alexander’s legacy – our much-needed children’s hospice service. That’s why we are pleased to be able to offer a free Will writing service with Beyond. 

Every gift can make a positive difference to the lives of the children and families we support. Big or small, it is what these gifts achieve together that makes them so incredible. 

Make Alexander’s legacy your own 

Alexander Devine was an extraordinary and brave boy who sadly passed away at the age of 8 from a rare brain tumour.

He left an incredible legacy in our much-needed children’s hospice service and has changed so many lives. It is because of Alexander that our charity today provides lifeline support to more than 130 children and their families, across Berkshire and the surrounding counties. 

By leaving a gift in your Will you can be part of Alexander’s incredible legacy. You have the power to change a child’s life and ensure that we can continue to be there for generations to come.

How will my gift make a difference?

When you leave a gift in your Will to Alexander Devine, you’re supporting the future of children like Stanley and his brother Riley. They were born with a rare genetic condition that means they cannot sit, talk, walk or swallow and require 24-hour care and support.

“The support we get helps us give the boys every opportunity we can to do things that normal, healthy children their age would do. Who knows what the future holds but the amazing support from Alexander’s Care Team is so valuable in helping me make the most of the time we have with them.”

Shailza, Riley and Stanley’s mum

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! 👏
