CHILDREN'S HOSPICE SOUTH WEST

Support The Children's Hospice and be part of my Dakar adventure


Children’s Hospice South West was founded in 1991 by Eddie and Jill Farwell after they experienced for themselves the urgent need for hospice care for children in the South West. Their two eldest children, Katie and Tom, had life-limiting illnesses and they had to travel over four hours, from their home in North Devon to Helen House in Oxford, then the country’s only children’s hospice.
In 1995 Little Bridge House, the South West’s first children’s hospice opened its doors to families from across the South West. Little Bridge House very quickly became oversubscribed, which led to the opening of the charity’s second hospice Charlton Farm located just outside Bristol, in 2007.
The Precious Lives Appeal to build a third hospice, in Cornwall, Little Harbour was launched in September 2007. The appeal ended in September 2011 as the £5million target was reached. Little Harbour welcomed its first families through the doors in December 2011.

JACOB

Support Jacob and be part of my Dakar adventure

Jacob lives nearby to me and has cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy is a condition that affects muscle control and movement. It is usually caused by an injury to the brain before, during or after birth. Children with cerebral palsy have difficulties in controlling muscles and movements as they grow and develop.

Jacob
Jacob goes through intensive physio and hydrotherapy, and he currently really needs some specialist equipment to make his life a little easier. Jacob is very active in his sleep and needs a bed where he can’t harm himself. These beds start at around £3,000 and it would be great if we could help with this.


There is advertising space reserved on my Dakar bike for Jacob's cause. The bike will be seen by 3.9 million spectators is South America, and shown in the UK motorcycle press and local papers. The Dakar is televised in 190 countries with around 1,200 hours of coverage. If you can help please contact me at: chris@gotrailriding.co.uk
