New Lifelites packages in 2020

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

Two for joy in October

Wed 31th Oct 2012 

Lifelites install two brand new and award-winning packages in children’s hospices this month, Chestnut Tree House in Arundel and the CHSW Charlton Farm, near Somerset.

Simone Enefer-Doy, Lifelites Chief Executive, said, "It's wonderful that we've been able to match the pace of the bourgeoning children's hospice movement, installing brand new packages that help children with severe disabilities and life-limiting conditions to learn and play."

Linda Perry, Director of Children’s Services at Chestnut Tree House, said, “We are very grateful to Lifelites for their continued support.  Not all of the children and young people we care for can communicate verbally and so this technology gives them an alternative means of communication.  It also enables children and families staying at the House to stay in touch with the outside world and is a great tool for work and play!”

Carl Joy, CHSW Practice Educator at Charlton Farm said: “This fantastic new equipment will bring lots of smiles to the children visiting Charlton Farm.  Many of them will never have the opportunity to travel in a real plane, let alone pilot one, so this will be an amazing experience for them.  At CHSW we are committed to making the most of short and precious lives and this equipment will certainly help us to do so. We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has made this donation possible.”

A significant amount of funding for the packages came from the Thomas Cook Children’s Charity. In 2012, 12 hospices across the country, including Chestnut Tree House and Charlton Farm, will benefit from a Lifelites package this year.

Pip Tyler, Vice Chair of The Thomas Cook Children's Charity said, “We're delighted that our donation will give so many children the opportunity to experience the world of travel for themselves.  The technology Lifelites provides has such a positive impact on both the children and their families and we're thrilled that we can help them offer this to more hospices throughout the UK.”
