“I am honoured to be Patron of this wonderful charity which does such amazing work to help children with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

Whenever I meet families who are being helped and supported by the Charity, I hear nothing but praise for the quality of the care and the services that are provided. In particular respite care at home is of vital importance and hugely valued and most families wish (as I do) that there were sufficient resources to extend this service further.”
