Trampoline parks fly high for children’s hospice

06 February 2020 chsw Fundraising

High-flying trampoline parks in Devon and Cornwall have raised more than £1,000 for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).

iBounce in Exeter and Bodmin sold special wristbands to customers throughout 2019, raising £1,134 for the charity, which provides respite breaks for more than 500 children with life-limiting conditions.

Money raised will enable families to make precious memories together at the charity’s three South West hospices in Barnstaple, St Austell and Bristol.

Ben Cheriton, managing director of iBounce, said: “CHSW has been our chosen charity to support for the last two years and the wristbands that we sell at our sites and through our website,, are very popular with children and adults alike.

“We are delighted to be supporting the charity once again in 2020, and with the launch of our new Virtual Reality Centre, iVR, at our Exeter trampoline park, we hope to be able to sell even more wristbands for this very worthy cause.”

The branches are hoping to organise a charity bounce-a-thon for Children’s Hospice South West later this year.

CHSW Community Fundraiser Laura Robertson said: “Many thanks to iBounce and their customers for raising money and awareness of CHSW – your support really does make a huge difference.”

iBounce Exeter, in Marsh Green Road, now boasts three family-friendly leisure facilities all under one roof, with a trampoline park, soft play centre and brand-new virtual reality centre, iVR. iBounce Bodmin, at the Callywith Gate Industrial Estate, is an all-weather family fun destination featuring Cornwall’s largest trampoline park, and Jurassic-themed soft play adventure park, iPlay.
