Thank you for choosing to support Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service - together we are making a huge difference to the lives of local children suffering from life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.

Do you know there was no hospice for children in Berkshire? Neither did parents Fiona and John Devine – until their son, Alexander, was diagnosed with a brain tumour when he was four years old.

Sadly Alexander lost his battle when he was just eight, but, inspired by his courage and determination, they set out to provide specialist palliative care for other children.

They founded the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service, a local charity which funds the Alexander’s Care Team, delivering palliative care, respite and support to children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions in their own homes across Berkshire and the bordering areas.

The charity also began a capital campaign to raise £6.8m to build Berkshire's first children's hospice, so that families can access the care and support they need within their local community.

Building started in September 2015, and was completed 18 months later.  The staff moved into the building in October 2017 and opened for day care earlier this year.

Whilst we cannot add days to their lives, with your help, we can add life to their days.
