20 years of magical moments

Mon 17th Jun 2019 

This week is Children’s Hospice Week, an opportunity to raise funds and awareness for the services that support children receiving palliative care. It also marks another very special occasion – our 20th birthday!

Birthday Badge Idea 5

Lifelites was founded as a millennium project back in 1999, back when technology was very different to what we donate now. We were donating desktop computers and there was only a handful of children's hospices. Fast forward 20 years and we are now working with every children’s hospice service across the British Isles, donating a huge range of revolutionary assistive technology which children of any ability can use to play, be creative, control something for themselves and communicate, for as long as it is possible.  

The theme of this year’s national Children’s Hospice Week campaign is ‘Moments that matter,’ so we’d like to share some of our very special moments from the last 20 years with you, the supporters who helped make it possible.

Simone Enefer-Doy, who has been the chief executive of Lifelites since it became a charity 14 years ago, said: "It seems hard to believe that this is our 20th year. It's a real wonder how far we've come since we started. So many things have helped make Lifelites what it is today, but at the heart I believe it's our proactive approach to finding the right solutions for children in hospices, combined with the incredible generosity of our supporters and the unbelievable advances in technology. What will the future bring?" 

To celebrate our birthday, and Children's Hospice Week, we've spoken to some of our staff, to ask them about their magical moments during their time with Lifelites. So, make sure you keep an eye on our social media pages so you don't miss them.
