Why should you put on your running shoes for Helen & Douglas House?
Your participation in our fundraising events is going to make a real difference to us – we care for terminally ill babies, children, young people, and their families through exceptional hospice care.
We rely on the generosity of the public to keep our doors open, with voluntary donations making up the majority of the £3 million every year we need to find to run the hospice service.
