New Lifelites packages in 2020

Take a look at the children' hospices services we hope to support this year

Ready for take off

Wed 12th Sep 2012 

Lifelites, the national technology charity marked the publication of its Annual Review with a launch party, inviting supporters and members of the games industry along to find out more about their work. The evening boasted a variety of gaming and technology ‘stations’, designed to show off different aspects of the Lifelites package to those attending and install a bit of fun into proceedings.

Ed Beardsell, who has supported Lifelites throughout 2012, said, “I had a great night! I was a little disappointed in my performance during the 100m sprint final – but hopefully next year I can get some training in on the Kinect and come back stronger. But, seriously, this is a great cause and what they’ve achieved over the past year deserves celebrating.”

Simone Enefer-Doy, Lifelites chief executive, agreed, “We have every right to be in party mood after the last 12 months. We’ve installed more packages in more hospices than ever before, and won three prestigious technology awards on the back of our innovation and focus on improving the lives of children with severe disabilities and terminal illnesses.”

The Annual Review had an children’s activity book theme, designed by long-term Lifelites design guru GDF Design, and Simone explained the team had been immediately taken with the idea. She also explained it captured the imagination of the people key to filling its pages.

“Play is a serious business. For the first time ever, we’ve turned our Annual Review pages over too the children and care staff who use our equipment day in, day out.”
