This year's donation will be the fifth that EACH Milton has received from Lifelites. The children here have life-limiting conditions which can restrict their lives in many ways, but the Lifelites technology will give them opportunities that they wouldn't have had otherwise.
When we last visited EACH Milton we met Josh and his mum Helen. Josh has a brain tumour but doctors can't agree on a diagnosis, and it is very unsure what the future holds for him. Helen said: "Josh has highly specialised needs and requires 24 hour care. He is paralysed on his left side, has impaired vision and can suffer multiple seizures a day. There is no treatment, we just manage his symptoms and make his life as comfortable and pleasant as possible."
Josh loves playing with the Lifelites technology, specifically the touchscreen computer. Helen said: "He loves the games and the fact that he can be in control. It really works with him, it's so great to see how much interaction he gets from it. There is no way we could afford to buy it for ourselves, so for him to have one at the hospice is wonderful. It just means the world to us."

We have plenty of opportunities for how you can get involved and help us raise funds so we can continue donating life-changing technology to children with disabilities and life-limited conditions. Have a look!
There are a number of challenge events held across the country which you can apply too to raise money for Lifelites. Please see below to a list of some of the most popular.
We need your help to provide 13 children's hospices across the British Isles with new projects in 2020/21.
We provide our magical technology to children and young people using every children's hospice service across the British Isles. Every four years we provide a brand new package to each hospice, and this year we hope to donate to the hospices listed below.
