Earlier this month, we were pleased to have Lauren from our chosen charity this year, Helen & Douglas House, come and talk to us about the charity and the amazing work they do.
Lauren gave us a history of the charity and told us more about the work they are involved in currently, such as their 2016 Appeal to raise awareness of the charity across Oxfordshire. They also work closely with hospitals where patients are involved in car accidents where they suffer from life-shortening conditions and the hospital can’t accommodate them for a long period of time.
We have also been invited to look around the hospice to better understand about the work they do and see all the amazing equipment they use to cater for each of their patients, such as the water-bed mattress for the comfort of guests and a sensory room.
We are really looking forward to working with them!
