We are delighted to announce that our fundraising activities for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) have raised over £3,000 to fund specialist care for children with life-limiting conditions.
We raised the funds through our annual charity BBQ and raffle, as well as putting our MD, David Roberts, behind bars for CHSW’s Jail & Bail event. The money raised is enough to fund a specialist children’s nurse for one month at Little Bridge House, CHSW’s hospice near Barnstaple.
Funding a specialist children’s nurse
Mhairi Bass-Carruthers, CHSW Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser, explains:
“Children’s nurses are an integral part of a team that supports families through vital respite breaks, emergency care, and end of life care.
“Nu-Heat’s generous donation will help to ensure that the children and families who visit our Barnstaple children’s hospice are receiving the best possible care. With the support of their children’s nurse, families are able to get through the most difficult of times and can enjoy quality time together making happy memories to treasure, long into the future.”
David Roberts adds:
“We are glad to contribute towards the vital work of Children’s Hospice South West, and make things a little easier for families who are going through the darkest of times. CHSW relies almost entirely upon voluntary donations to offer families across the South West free care and support, and we chose them as our charity of the year in order to do our bit to support them.”
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported our fundraising efforts for CHSW. Whether you donated a prize, bought a raffle ticket or helped David raise the bail to get out of jail, your support will make a huge difference to families in the care of CHSW.
