How your fundraising helps

Little Bridge House sensory room

£15 could help... run our sensory rooms for one week. 

Many children suffer from illnesses which can impair their senses.
Our sensory rooms help stimulate the senses through use of bubble tubes, fibre optics, soothing music and heated water beds.

Messy play time!

£50 could fund... our messy play materials in our hospices for three weeks. 
This will give sick children and their siblings a place to play, express themselves and to create masterpieces.
