We have been working with Jigsaw in Carlisle since 2000, and will soon be donating their latest package of technology, which will be their fifth from Lifelites.
Last time we visited we met Jonnie, who has complex medical needs. As soon as Jonnie was placed on the Magic Carpet he took to it instantly. His carers said that when he is relaxed he gently rocks and starts to hum, which he did when he was on the Magic Carpet. The team were absolutely delighted with his response and and amazed at how calm it made him.
The staff have also said:
"Each piece of technology will make such a difference to the children here. It will give them so many opportunities to do things for themselves."
"The opportunities that this technology provides are huge. It will install much more confidence in the children and increase their skills and abilities."
Would you like to give kids with limited life unlimited possibilities?
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 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.
