At Children’s Hospice South West we help and support children and their families who are living with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and we are the only organisation in the South West to provide vital hospice care in a hospice environment to these families. Some families come to us for palliative care, some for emergency care and many for planned respite and a rare opportunity for a break away. But there’s more to it than that. We provide a loving and caring place for every member of the families who stay with us. A place where everyone can begin to forget their worries for a while, be a family again and find expert help and support in facing an uncertain future. Our services are free to the families who need us because we believe that nothing should get in the way of very sick children receiving the very best care. So, with little government funding, we rely on the generosity of our supporters to deliver our promise to ‘make the most of short and precious lives’. Children’s Hospice South West has three purpose-built hospices in the South West; Little Bridge House in North Devon Charlton Farm in North Somerset and Little Harbour in St Austell, Cornwall.

Three for 33
Having reached my 33rd birthday in November I have decided to make the next 12 months the most epic yet. I will be competing in three events that will each push me to the edge of my abilities. The first will be a 112 mile sportive on my bike in the lake district. The Fred Whitton challenge will be done as part of a team selected by cycling plus magazine where they will follow my progress. This will be the first time I have ridden 100 or more in one day. The second event is the Childrens Hospice Ride for Precious lives over three days from St Austell in Cornwall to Bristol visiting each of the childrens hospices along the route.
My final challenge in September of 2014 will be to complete the Warwickshire sprint triathlon, For most that would not seem a major challenge but for me having spina bifida and 20 operations competing in three disciplines in one day will be a challenge in it self.
Please help me raise as much money for this amazing charity.
