We bring much needed joy, light & laughter to brighten the days of very ill children.


It's Farebrother's annual marathon walk charity challenge!

On Thursday 5th October the Farebrother team will be embarking on a circa 22 mile walk along the Jurassic Coast from West Bay to Weymouth to raise money for Spread a Smile.

Spread a Smile brings joy and hope to seriously ill children in hospitals, hospices and homes across the UK.

Through in-person and virtual visits, their renowned entertainers – from magicians to face-painters, musicians to therapy dogs – generate moments of distraction and excitement, helping young patients and their families to face their significant health challenges with optimism and positivity.

Since their founding in 2013, they have built a reputation for developing bespoke relationships with each family and each health setting, so that they can offer the most meaningful, impactful support. They complement their main work with art initiatives, family outings and seasonal celebration events.

In 2023-24, they will deliver over 12,000 in-person bedside visits and over 2,000 virtual visits, in partnership with 27 hospitals and 3 hospice partners.

Thank you for your donations, they make such a difference!
