Our hospice open days

CHSW open daysEach month we open our doors to give our supporters an insight into children’s hospice life and thank our donors and volunteers for all their ongoing support.

We do not have any planned family stays at during these days and so you won’t hear the usual noise and laughter that bounces off the walls of the house but you will leave with a huge sense of enthusiasm for your local charity and a proud smile on your face.

"To be honest I really didn't know what to expect, but today has inspired me to do so much and not take my life for granted."
