Monster Race is delighted to again have Children’s Hospice South West as its charity partner for our Charlton Park event. The Winter Monster has now raised approx. £50,000 for CHSW which is something we are very proud of. See the below text for a summary of what this great charity does:

“Family life changes forever when a child is diagnosed with a life-limiting illness.  Parents, who often have to give up work to care for their sick child, face challenges that can threaten their relationship, whilst brothers and sisters can feel confused, left out and alone.

Children’s Hospice South West’s three hospices, Little Bridge House in North Devon, Charlton Farm near Bristol and Little Harbour in Cornwall provide respite care and support to those children and their families who have to cope with the most difficult of situations.  They describe our hospices as a “door that has opened in their lives” and “a lifeboat that saved them from drowning”. 

We provide a loving and caring place for every member of the family.  A place where everyone can begin to forget their worries for a while, be a family again and find expert help and support in facing an uncertain future. Families come to stay with us for respite breaks and we are there for them to care for their child and support them all as they move towards end of life care and into bereavement. Our care team do everything they can to help make the most of every moment a very sick child has with us and their family, thanks to you.”
