Julia’s House offers a lifeline to parents whose child may not live into adulthood and will need constant care. The charity provides award-winning care for babies, children and young people with life-shortening and life-threatening conditions, and offers support for their families.
Michael Bright, owner of IMSM, said: “I’m very proud of everyone at IMSM pulling together to help raise this money. I know it will be gratefully received. I hope Julia’s House continues to go from strength to strength.”
Staff from IMSM were invited to see the charity’s Devizes hospice and were impressed by the facilities on offer, such as sensory rooms and gardens, and computers that use eye-tracking for children who are unable to move a mouse.
Hannah Gale, who runs the charity committee at IMSM said: “Visiting the hospice really opens your eyes to the magical work that they do for the families in their care. IMSM try to organise events at least once a month to ensure we are doing all we can to raise as much money as possible.”
Ged Montgomery of Julia’s House commented: “We are delighted to receive this generous support from IMSM. We provide vital respite care for parents who look after extremely sick children and kind donations such as this enable us to continue providing the care, facilities and help required by families within the Wiltshire and Dorset area. We look forward to continuing the relationship with IMSM in the future.”
