Baywater Healthcare put a smile and a little chocolate on the children’s faces this Easter.
Staff and friends from Baywater Healthcare in Crewe have collected over 70 Easter Eggs for Hope House Children’s Hospices.
The Easter Eggs are to be distributed to the children, young adults and their siblings who use Hope House’s services.
Hope House provides care and support to terminally ill children and their families across the whole of Cheshire, Shropshire, Mid Wales, and North Wales.
Their support includes terminal and respite care, both at the hospices and in the child’s own home, and counselling for the whole family for as long as is required.
Bereavement counselling is also extended to any family in the community that has lost a child through illness or accident, or where children have lost a parent in traumatic circumstances.
Their services cost £4 million a year to run and just one month’s funding is provided by the Government – the rest of the running costs are met by fundraising and donations.
Adam Sullivan, CEO at Baywater Healthcare, said:
“Over the past couple of weeks the pile of Easter Eggs has been building up and we were absolutely thrilled to be handing over so many to such a worthy cause.
Through our home oxygen service we know some of the people that Hope House make a difference to and it’s great to help them and their families.’
Hannah Penney, Area Fundraiser for Hope House would like to thank Baywater Healthcare for collecting the eggs.
‘We always like to hand out Easter Eggs to the children and their siblings over Easter and as you can imagine we are very grateful to Baywater for collecting a fantastic amount for us.
The Eggs have been distributed by our team of Outreach nurses working in the community and to the families currently at the hospice’.
