On Saturday 24th October 2015 Guy Salmon Ascot were proud to be able to lend a helping hand for some fundraising and awareness for the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice in Windsor Train Station.
We were thrilled to find out that we helped raise a massive £801.04 on the day through the collection boxes. There was also a little helping hand from some very special guests on the day. Two beautiful reindeer arrived and captured the eyes and hearts of passers by. everyone was lucky enough to be able to pat and feed the reindeer and even have a selfie with them! The reindeer arrived from Riverways Farm in Twyford www.riverwaysfarm.co.uk. the reindeer were a pleasure to have on the day, they thoroughly enjoyed the attention they received and im sure they had a well deserved carrot once they were home.
we were also lucky enough to have the four main characters from Frozen attend and help with fundraising and have photographs with passers by.
The work that the Alexander Devine Charity does would not be possible without the help from people and of course the reindeer from Riverways Farm and of course the very generous general public.
An Introduction into the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice:
Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service now funds Alexander's Nurses who support families across Berkshire in their own homes, providing much needed respite, palliative care, emotional and practical support. We are working towards building Berkshire's very own children's hospice for these local families which will be supported by a home care team.
Their ethos is that the child is central to everything that they do. They work in partnership with families and local hospitals so that they can provide 'joined-up' support that really benefits each and every family. They always listen and learn so that they can deliver a flexible service which meets their changing needs.
Their charity was founded by parents who wholly understand what these families are experiencing. They feel privileged to be supporting these exceptional children and their families – please join them as they work to make their difficult journeys just that little bit easier.
