Collingwood have proudly been supporting Hope House Children’s Hospices for several years and over those years we have had the pleasure of meeting and listening to many inspirational people, listening to their stories and learning about how Hope House supported them through their difficult times. They are an amazing bunch of people who inspire us and who we love to help and support.
Hope House Children's Hospices - Hope House at Oswestry and T? Gobaith at Conwy - provide care and support to life-limited children, young people and their families from Shropshire, Cheshire, North and Mid Wales.
A range of services are offered, including respite and end-of-life care at the hospices and/or within the family home, and support such as counselling, advocacy and the promotion of children, young people's and carers' rights.
Children, young people and family members are welcomed into a friendly, homely environment, with the child or young person at the centre. The support offered includes physical, psychological and spiritual care from a team including experienced doctors, nurses and other care professionals. Support is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Bereavement support is offered to all children, young people, family members and others involved with the family. This is according to the family's wishes and continues for as long as needed. Bereavement support and counselling is also offered to families in the wider community who have lost a child through any illness or trauma. This support can also be given to children and young people who have experienced a death of someone close in traumatic circumstances.
The work Hope House do is incredible and without the kind donations they receive they would be unable to help and support those in need of their services.
We at Collingwood are looking forward to taking part in Gung-Ho (Chester) on 1st June, an event run by Hope House to raise the much needed funds for their charity, PLEASE JOIN US TO RAISE AWARENESS AND GENERATE FUNDS by donating at https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Team/CollingwoodSearch
