Slowly, some normality is returning to our lives, but approaching Christmas, we know it will still be far from normal for many of us. Many of us will still face a Christmas spent apart from our loved ones, this is especially true for many of the families that CHAS supports, and, for some of them, this could be their last.
CHAS families face the terrifying reality of losing a child and this year, like the last, has been particularly hard. COVID-19 has limited the amount of experiences we can provide for families. CHAS families who cannot put time on hold or postpone events. That's why this Christmas is so important.
We continue to support families through the terrifying heartbreak of knowing their child may die young. With love and compassion, we offer highly personalised care in hospice, hospital and home. We make things possible so children have the freedom to be themselves, play outside, laugh, sparkle, smile, and have treasured moments of joy. We are there when needed most - in really tough days, at end of life, and after a child die. By supporting us this Christmas you will help make sure that no-one should face the death of their child alone.
There are so many ways to support CHAS and the families we look after this Christmas, we've got plenty of ideas in our handy fundraising pack.
