Our Beneficiaries

Ward 110 North Staffs Hospital

This is where Ben spent most of his time, so we want to support this ward “on the ground”.  The fund has already re-kitted the ward out with 7 TV’s, Videos and DVD players. We re-stocked the “Treasure boxes”, and new toys for the playroom.  Also the fund has bought a “large” buggy to ferry children who are off their legs – Ben borrowed one, and now the ward have 2 to loan out. Christmas decorations – nice new ones!

We have also built a cinema complex into the ward playroom.  a 61" plasma TV, Xbox, Wii, DVD player, Freeview and "on request" video library

Parent Accommodation at BCH

We spent 4 weeks sleeping at BCH, and the limited number of excellent parent rooms, meant you did not have to sleep in a chair! Always in need of funds.

Radiotherapy area at the QE Hospital

The QE Hospital is an adult Hospital, and the Children feel a little out of sorts when they receive their treatment.  The staff are brilliant, but they need a play area!

WE have donated £4000 towards a child friendly area - due to be opened soon.

Edwards House

A fantastic accommodation block near to Birmingham Children’s hospital, we spent 6 – 8 weeks for free here, while Ben received Radiotherapy, and while we waited for diagnosis – life saver.  The house has now gone, but they still have a bereavement facility - we have donated £5000 to a memorial to all of the children at the National Arboretum in Burton -

 Treetops
 Hospice

We were referred here by the ward to take advantage of the facilities It also looked after Ben after he died– we simply could not have made it "back" to normality without their help - it carries out an amazing job, and it costs a lot to run (£7000 per day) –also known as the Donna Louise trust – they always need funds.
