Cundall supporting Childrens Hospice Week Share this article

From Friday 26th April 2013 to Friday 03 May 2013, it is Childrens Hospice Week. Cundall are delighted to announce we have chosen the Grace House Hospice as our North East charity of the year.

Duchess of Cambridge has endorsed Children’s Hospice Week http://chw.togetherforshortlives.org.uk/, urging people to support children’s hospices and the campaign running until Friday.

Cundall have supported the charity for a number of years, raising money through charity events such as Coast2Coast Challenge and fundraising activities in their offices, however this year as our official charity we will be focusing our efforts to raise more money.

A little bit about the Hospice

Grace House North East Children’s Hospice Appeal will provide a home from home for very sick children from across the North East, from the Scottish Borders to Teesside. It will provide support for their siblings and parents and offer respite and terminal care.

A team of dedicated professionals will offer the most up-to-date medical skills and palliative care and support geared to the needs of the whole family; physical and emotional. Help will be available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year…continuing into bereavement for as long as is needed.

The purpose-built, hospice will be self-contained with bright, homely rooms for children and accommodation for whole families. It will provide a much-needed addition to existing services, giving parents a break, a chance to share their time with other children in the family as well as the gravely ill. A chance to talk about their fears and complex emotions, facing up to a future which can never be what they had hoped.

It costs £1,000 for one child to stay in the hospice each night, when the Hospice is fully open the cost will drop to £756.

Cundall’s Newcastle Office have planned a few fundraising events over the next week and we will be sharing on Twitter and LinkedIn
