We are pleased to be working with Children's Hospice South West, Age UK Exeter, Julian House,ELF and FORCE Cancer in supporting each other during 2018-2020 as Charity Partners.
We will be working together on a number of events throughout the year to provide increased opportunitites to raise our charity profiles and raise much needed funds.
At Children's Hospice South West (CHSW) we provide care for children who are not expected to survive into adulthood. The care we offer is wide ranging; We provide specialist palliative care, respite for the whole family, a sibling service for brothers and sisters, emergency support. From diagnosis through to bereavement and beyond, we are there for as long as a family needs us.
We are delighted to be partnered with Exeter City Community Trust, helping CHSW raise valuable awareness and funds to support the families in our care. Every penny you raise in sponsorship for CHSW enables our skilled, qualified and totally committed staff make more precious memories for children with a life-limiting conditions and their families living in Exeter and across the South West.
We are so grateful to all the runners and supporters of Exeter CCT events, and when you cross the finish line, we hope you'll feel like a champion in more ways than one.
