The Last Friday Club, a networking group run by us in partnership with Ramsdens Solicitors, Begbies Traynor and Barclays showed their support of Children’s Hospice Week with their very own superhero.Children's Hospice Week is the UK's only awareness and fundraising week for children with life-limiting conditions and the services, like children's hospices, that support them. It takes place this year between 26 April and 3 May, culminating with Superhero Friday - a special day of hero inspired fundraising.
Children's hospices care and support children not expected to reach adulthood and their families. Together for Short Lives is calling on you to be a hero in Children's Hospice Week and help raise funds for these vital services. This year we will be focusing on siblings to raise awareness of how the whole family is affected and how services support brothers and sisters through special groups and activities.
Jason Costello, Partnership Development Manager from our member Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice who was our very own hero comments: “ It was great to be invited to the Last Friday Networking Club by Sinead from Ramsdens, being able to raise funds and awareness for our local children’s hospice Forget Me Not is vital. It costs £2.5 million per year to deliver the services for all the children and families that need our support. Thank you to all who got involved and donated you’re all our super heroes”
Sinéad Sopala, Marketing Manager at Ramsdens and of the Last Friday Club also comments: “Being able to help and raise awareness of Children’s Hospice Week was an easy decision. It’s so important we all support the incredible work these hospices do in our communities.”
