Wise Employment Group link up with Children’s Hospice South West

Wise Employment Group cheque presentation

In celebration of 25 years in business, the Wise Employment Group wanted to mark this special occasion by giving back to the local community within the South and South West network of branches.

The Group were excited to choose to work with Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) as it was not only a very worthy charity but had the same geographical match and was established in the same year.

Mortgage company to support Children’s Hospice

Morgan and Dad, Darren

One 77 Mortgages based in Chippenham, Wiltshire, has chosen Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) as its Charity of the Year.

Darren Walker, Head of New Business at One 77, has experienced first-hand how the CHSW helps families at a difficult time in their lives. Darren’s son Morgan was born 8 weeks premature, weighed just 3lb 10oz, and had to be rushed to the neo-natal intensive care unit (NICU), where he was put on a machine to help him breathe.

Rugby legend Phil Vickery visits Little Bridge House sensory room


After 20 years of constant use, the sensory facilities at Children’s Hospice South West’s Little Bridge House in Fremington were in need of refurbishment. Thanks to generous funding, including a donation from the children’s charity of rugby, the Wooden Spoon Society, the hospice has been able to completely refurbish the room into a high tech multi-sensory play room which was visited by rugby legend Phil Vickery on Friday 12 January.

Tracy Freame, Head of Care at Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) said:

Our families are set for an even more exciting journey through our Chronicles of Narnia Sensory Garden at Little Bridge House, thanks to the installation of brand new sound effects.

They include enhanced sounds such as boots walking through snow, thunder and lightning, the bells of the Snow Queen’s sleigh and the roar of Aslan the Lion.

The work has been made possible thanks to funding from Tesco’s Bags of Help grant scheme, which comes from the sale of carrier bags in its stores, and Groundwork UK. Thank you to everyone who voted in their local store!
