May's magical moments

Fri 1st Jun 2018 

We have so many magical moments here at Lifelites, and May has been no exception.

Magical hospices

The Lifelites team have been busy conducting consultations with the children’s hospice services that will be receiving technology packages this year. Through these consultations, Lifelites can ensure that every children’s hospice gets exactly what they need to create more magical moments, for more children and their families across the British Isles.

Magical fundraising

Earlier this month, chief executive Simone Enefer-Doy set off on an epic adventure, Lift for Lifelites, to visit 47 famous Landmarks across England and Wales in just 14 days. That's a lot of miles, over 2,500 of them, and to help make the journey our magical supporters have rallied around to find the most unusual and stylish methods of transport. Simone will be visiting the likes of Brighton Pavilion and the Angel of the North, with the aim to raise awareness of Lifelites and £50,000. If you would like to follow her journey, you can do so here

Magical Children’s Hospice Week

This month we joined the charity Together for Short Lives in their Children’s Hospice Week campaign. Celebrating the moments that matter, we spoke to families and children’s hospice staff to find out their top magical moments. You can read some of ours here

Magical supporters

This month Lifelites was delighted to receive a generous donation of £2,000 from the National Association of Masonic Clay Shooting Societies (NAMCSS). This donation will help Lifelites to provide specialist technology packages to life limited and disabled children across the British Isles. The Lifelites team would like to say a big thank you to the NAMCSS and all our magical supporters.

Magical technology

The Lifelites team were thrilled when earlier this month Microsoft announced their new accessible gaming controller. Designed to be used by gamers with limited mobility, the Xbox Adaptive Controller can be customised to suit the user and can be connected to external devices to help make gaming more accessible.

Lifelites Chief Executive, Simone Enefer-Doy explains why this technology is so magical “Children and young people in hospices often find that their opportunities to join in with the world around them are limited by disabilities, but this shouldn’t be the case. Many of them feel isolated and find it difficult to develop social skills, but gaming can change this. It helps form valuable friendships and gives them a sense of respite and relief from the challenges they face.  We have also seen how it can give them motivation, inclusion and quality of life”.
