Jessie May, Children’s Charity in Bristol

Created by a family for families

Jessica May died at home aged 4 1/2 months surrounded by her family and supported by a team of nurses.

Since then, we’ve expanded our service to cover North Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Bath and North East Somerset, and Swindon and Wiltshire.
