Jessie May Children’s Hospice at Home is a charity that provides exceptional palliative care and support to children with life-limiting conditions, and their families, in their own homes.

Over the last decade, more and more children have been referred to Jessie May than ever before. Their medical needs have become ever more complex and as a result, the clinical care Jessie May nurses provide is becoming more specialist, especially at end-of-life.

Today our team of nurses delivering care in the home stands at 16, to fund just 1 of them costs from £41,000.

Going the extra mile this February by taking on 30 miles in 29 days and raising vital funds, will help to ensure that Jessie May nurses can be there for children and their families, at every point in their journey. Thank you!

But don't just take our word for it, here is what Margot's family had to say:

Reflecting on their journey, both Victoria and Greg expressed deep gratitude for the support they received from Jessie May.

“I can’t imagine life without Jessie May – they have become an integral part of Margot’s life, our lives and they give us that huge love and support that is invaluable. You’ve only got to see in terms of how they have integrated with our family and the development and support they give Margot for the time being. It’s a very unique service that they offer and I would encourage anyone to support them"

Without the organisation and the generosity of its supporters, their lives as a family, including Margot’s older sister Mimi, would have been severely impacted. Jessie May’s care and guidance have been truly invaluable, fostering Margot’s development and offering unparalleled support to the entire family.

Thank you from everyone at the Griffiths family, keep up the great work and we just hope that other families get to benefit and appreciate the support that you’ve given us.”

Thank you for your continued support, we are cheering you all the way!
