ellenor hospice welcomes Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cambridge’s personal message of support to mark Children’s Hospice Week 2022.
Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cambridge has sent a personal message of support for Children’s Hospice Week 2022, asking everyone to join her in celebrating the extraordinary work the UK’s 54 children’s hospices do for children and young people with life-limiting conditions, helping families make the most of their lives together, no matter how short. The Duchess is Royal Patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).
ellenor is one of the charities joining The Duchess in marking Children's Hospice Week. ellenor is delighted that The Duchess has sent a special message showing how children’s hospices help seriously ill children and families. The Duchess’s message shines a light on the extraordinary lifeline support that children’s hospices provide, so families don’t have to face the future alone.
Children’s Hospice Week (20-26 June) is organised by Together for Short Lives, the UK charity for seriously ill children and families, and is the only week in the year dedicated to raising funds and awareness for children’s hospice services across the UK, and the thousands of children and families they support. The theme for Children’s Hospice Week is “For The Children.” Children’s hospices provide vital support for children and young people with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition. Everything they do is For The Children – helping families make the most of their lives together, whether that’s for years, months or only hours.
ellenor will be celebrating The Duchess’s support for Children’s Hospice Week by highlighting the support services available to families and how we meet the needs of life limited children in the community.
Linda Coffey, Director of Care at ellenor is thrilled that HRH, The Duchess of Cambridge is helping to raise awareness of services like ellenor by marking Children’s Hospice Week. “We are thrilled that The Duchess of Cambridge’s personal message of support endorses the vital role children’s hospices play to children facing a life limiting or life threatening condition. We care for children aged 0-19 years with a range of complicated illnesses, such as the degenerative condition Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and Cerebral Palsy. Here at ellenor, everything we do is #ForTheChildren and to make sure we continue providing a lifeline support for children and their families facing the unimaginable.
We hope that Children’s Hospice Week and this message of support from HRH The Duchess of Cambridge will help more people to see what wonderful and vital places children’s hospices are.”
