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 our charity, 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

Last week we had the pleasure of welcoming the Mayor of the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead, Cllr Christine Bateson, to our children’s hospice in Maidenhead.

It was a wonderful opportunity to show her our amazing state-of-the-art facilities and talk about the vital support we give to local children and their families, all made possible by donations and fundraising.

There are many misconceptions about what children’s hospice care is all about. Not many people understand the all-encompassing care that children’s hospice services like ours provide to children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, and their families. As well as the specialist clinical care, our holistic and bespoke approach aims to provide the best possible support for each child and family. This includes support such as much-needed respite, specialist play for children and their siblings, symptom management, family support services, end of life care and bereavement support. As well as at our children’s hospice in Maidenhead, Alexander’s Care Team provides support in the family home and the community, including hospitals and schools.

With facilities at our hospice such as a hydrotherapy pool, sensory room and accessible playground, we offer opportunities for children and their siblings to experience fun, joy and adventures, and help families make precious memories for as long as they have. For some of these children and their families, we will support them for many years, for others it may be a shorter period of time.

During the visit, our CEO Fiona introduced the mayor to our some of our wonderful volunteers and members of Alexander’s Care Team. However, we think it was Thomas and Keanu’s big smiles that definitely proved to be the highlight of the visit!
