As part of Playforce’s ‘Nature Month’, the company selected children’s hospices across the UK to receive brand new ‘natural world’ play equipment, free of charge.
The hospices were nominated by national charity, Together for Short Lives, following their 2018 Children’s Hospice Week.
Together for Short Lives is the UK charity for seriously ill children living with lifelimiting or terminal conditions that cannot be cured.
Myra Johnson, Director of Communications & Engagement at Together for Short Lives said:
“We are here to support and empower children and their families - and to build a strong and sustainable children’s palliative care system - so that no family is left to cope alone. “Together with the UK’s 54 children’s hospices, we provide a lifeline to families, whenever and wherever they need it.
Children’s Hospice Week is our biggest appeal and this year we asked our children and families to share their favourite things to do - playing outside was one of their top five moments. Playforce’s donations are a lovely way of supporting this and the UK’s children’s hospices.”
Emily Northin, Director of Marketing at Playforce, said: “We work with a number of children’s hospices and have long admired. Together for Short Lives for the difference it makes in encouraging support for them. At Playforce we’re passionate about helping children to enjoy the outdoors and nature.
We saw our recent Nature Month as an opportunity to help more children - and those closest to them - to do this, at a time when they need it most.”
