Childrens' Hospice Southwest - Emma Parker (Ladies Invited)

Posted on April 18, 2019 at 1:00 PM

Today, a warm welcome was extended to the ladies who joined us.

The presentation was given by Emma Parker on behalf of Childrens' Hospice Southwest.

For more than 25 years Children's Hospice South West has been caring for children with life-threatening conditions by providing children's hospice and professional family support services. They are dedicated to making the most of short and precious lives through the provision of the best possible hospice care for children and young people with life-limiting conditions. The care offered at each of the three hospices is not just about medical and nursing support for sick children but enriching lives of the children and their whole family.

They provide care and support to families living in the South West, who have children with life-limiting conditions. They provide specialist palliative care, respite for the whole family, a sibling service for brothers and sisters, emergency support, end of life care and a bereavement service for as long as is needed.

After this excellent presentation  by Emma, an impromptu collection was made which raised over £200.
