Hospice re­fur­bished

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

HE­LEN and Dou­glas House has of­fi­cially re-opened its new-look He­len House chil­dren’s hospice after a ma­jor re­fur­bish­ment.

Ac­tor Tom Hollander joined chil­dren, fam­i­lies, staff, vol­un­teers and sup­port­ers to cel­e­brate the re-open­ing on Mon­day, Septem­ber 15.

The char­ity, which is in Ox­ford and serves pa­tients from Bucks, looks after chil­dren with life-lim­it­ing ill­nesses.

Sam Daly has Duchenne mus­cu­lar dys­tro­phy and has been go­ing to He­len House, since 2012.

Sam’s mum, Sara, said: “It’s light and bright and the re­fur­bish­ment has moved the whole place into the 21st cen­tury.”

Reg Cane and Des­mond Hall from the Ro­tary Club of Ger­rards Cross and Chal­font St Peter, were among the vis­i­tors to He­len House. The club has been a long-time sup­porter of the hospice.
