Anyone can do something special to raise funds for Helen & Douglas House.


Anyone can do something special to raise funds for Helen & Douglas House.

Without amazing people like you, we couldn’t be there for families going through the unimaginable heartbreak of caring for and losing a terminally ill child.

At Helen & Douglas House, we support terminally ill children and their families so that they don’t have to face unimaginable heartbreak alone. But we can’t do this without your help. To keep providing the care and love these families depend on, we need to find over £3.6 million a year. You can help this amazing cause by doing some local fundraising and having great fun in the process!

Whether you raise money by jumping out of an aeroplane or throwing a garden party, hosting a karaoke night or cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats, there are loads of fun ways to make a huge difference to families going through the trauma of losing a child.
