Charity of the Year 2016-2017
Pavey Group are proud to announce that our Charity of the Year for 2016-2017 is Children’s Hospice South West.
For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the charity; Children’s Hospice South West provide hospice care to children with a wide range of disorders & serious illnesses who are not expected to survive into adulthood, covering Cornwall, Plymouth, Torbay, Devon, Somerset, North Somerset, Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset and South Gloucestershire.
The care offered at each of their hospices does not solely revolve around providing medical and nursing support, they also aim to enrich and support the lives of the children and their families. Children’s Hospice South West provide services ranging from respite and short breaks to emergency, palliative and end of life care, extending to the whole family from diagnosis into bereavement and beyond for as long as they are needed. Their aim is to provide a home from home; The whole family can stay at 1 of their 3 hospices (located in Barnstaple, Bristol & St Austell), and have adopted a strong family-centred approach with a dedicated sibling support service available, ensuring that brothers and sisters can also be cared for during their visit, giving them the opportunity to enjoy spending time with other children in similar situations, providing a much needed break from the ongoing strains they face at home.
Our offices in Torquay, Exeter & Holsworthy will support and fundraise for Children’s Hospice South West throughout the year:
