The Big Give Christmas Challenge is now LIVE!

2nd December morning


The Big Give Christmas Challenge is now LIVE! For 1 week only your donation to Jessie May will be matched and DOUBLED! Please give what you can and help us reach our target, so we can welcome 11 additional terminally ill children to the Jessie May family.

We are taking part in the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign, the Big Give Christmas Challenge, to raise £23,100, which will allow our charity to welcome 11 additional children with life limiting conditions to our charity’s services.

From midday today (November 27th – Giving Tuesday!) until midday next Tuesday (December 4th) every £ you donate through our Big Give profile will be automatically DOUBLED!

Your donation – big or small – will make a difference and help us help local families caring for a terminally ill child. Please give what you can and make twice the impact.

Why us?

Jessie May was created 22 years ago by a family, for families. We remain the only charity in the South West to deliver palliative care within the family home and provide bereavement support for up to 5 years after a child’s death. All our nurses are highly trained professionals who can meet the complex medical needs of every child they care for and respond to any emergency within the home. It is our consistency of care throughout a child’s illness that sets us apart.

There are currently 11 children within our operating areas not receiving our free respite and palliative care support. Your help means we can welcome all of these children onto our caseload. Your support will mean we can:

  • Continue to operate a no waiting list policy so new families can receive our support immediately
  • Conduct the home visits needed to accept and set-up 11 new children onto the Jessie May caseload
  • Provide palliative care and holistic support to improve the whole family’s health and well-being
  • Increase parents’ sense of belonging to a supportive community of others with terminally ill children

Please donate this week to ensure your donation is doubled, and help us reach our target.

Donations must be processed through our Big Give profile here to be doubled – thank you!
