Making the most of precious moments

Children's Hospice South West turns 25 this year and over that quarter of a century supporting children with life-limiting conditions and their families, its mission has remained the same – to make the most of every short and precious life.

The support and generosity of the people in the South West has been invaluable to the charity, helping it to reach its 25th anniversary.

Eddie Farwell said: “My hope is that in another 25 years that Children’s Hospice South West will have expanded its services to support even more children with life-limiting illnesses and that the army of supporters who care so much for these children are there to sustain what we do."
