Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW)
Congratulations, Children’s Hospice South West was nominated by Higos Insurance Services Ltd. They care for children with life-limiting conditions and their whole family across the South West. This life-changing difference from the minibus not only appeared to be one they needed but based on the votes, one that they deserved.
Naomi Dymond, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser at CHSW said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be the winners of this fabulous minibus and can’t thank LV= enough! It will be used for a variety of different things, in particular by our sibling team who look after the brothers and sisters of the life-limited children who are staying with us. They regularly organise day trips for the siblings, travelling out for fun activities such as trips to the zoo or cinema. Many of these children can feel left out and don’t often get the chance to enjoy trips such as this due to the pressures their families are under with caring for a poorly child. It is therefore wonderful to give them this opportunity. We rely almost entirely on voluntary donations so without doubt; this minibus will make a world of difference to us.”
Also thanks to everyone that voted we’ll be donating £131 to WellChild!
