Children’s Hospice open days

THE Children’s Hospice South West will be holding open days at two of its hospices and invites everyone for a guided tour and a cup of tea!

Little Bridge House in Fremington is throwing open its doors to visitors on a number of dates throughout the year, starting on Saturday, January 8.

A spokeperson said: “Many people worry that they would find visiting a children’s hospice too upsetting, but we can assure you that our hospices are bright, fun and vibrant places. You won’t be disturbing any children or families as the days are carefully planned to ensure there are no families staying with us at this time. During your visit, unfortunately, you won’t hear the usual noise and laughter, but you will leave with a huge sense of enthusiasm for your local charity and a proud smile on your face.

“The families that use our hospices are reliant on the generosity of people of the South West to keep this vital service going. We would be very pleased to welcome you and any family members, friends or colleagues you would like to bring along to experience first hand the warmth of Little Bridge House and see the results of our supporters’ hard work and generosity.”

Children’s Hospice South West is the only organisation providing specialist hospice care in the South West for families with children who are not expected to reach adulthood. Through its hospices at Little Bridge House in North Devon, Charlton Farm in North Somerset and eventually Little Harbour in Cornwall it offers respite, palliative, emergency and end of life care to sick children and care and support to their families.
