Special festive delivery for Children’s Hospice
CHILDREN’S Hospice South West has received a special freight delivery in the form of two Christmas trees.
Lorry drivers from freight company DHL delivered them to Little Bridge House in Fremington as part of the charity Hannah’s Trees efforts to supply trees to every hospice for children in the South West.
This year the DHL depot at Emerald Park, Bristol, offered to help distribute the trees, with support from Sainsburys plus some delivery help from the British Army.
The charity was set up in memory of Hannah Owen, who died aged 13 on December 9, 2009 after a long battle against a brain tumour.
As her legacy, her parents decided they wanted to ensure other children enjoyed what was Hannah’s favourite time of the year. In 2010 they provided trees to Helen and Douglas House hospice in Oxford where Hannah stayed, but this year they wanted to spread operations further.

“The two Christmas trees stand proudly in the hospice for all to enjoy.”
