For our launch party we are sponsoring a local children?s charity, Demelza Hospice Care for Children. Demelza is the only children’s residential hospice covering Kent, East Sussex and South London and it provides end of life care, bereavement support, short break respite and other specialist care to over 700 children and their families.
Demelza Hospice was set up by Derek and Jennifer Phillips following the death of their daughter, Demelza, from a brain tumour.??The couple wanted to provide a much needed children?s hospice for their community which could bring cheerfulness, affection and understanding to?terminally?ill children and their loved ones. And so, with financial support from their community and further afield, they established Demelza Hospice Care for Children which opened its doors in 1998.

We will be sponsoring a different charity for each event so if you have any suggestions for a charity which you would like us to support we would love to hear from you.
