Guy Morris, Operations Manager at Yatton-based Smart Architectural Aluminium, presented a cheque for £2,800 on behalf of the company’s directors and staff to Janey Hellmen from Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW). The money was raised by staff making a donation equivalent to the amount they would otherwise have spent on Christmas cards and gifts.

Speaking after the presentation, Guy Morris said: “CHSW’s North Somerset hospice, Charlton Farm, has been our nominated charity for more than ten years and we’re delighted to start the New Year by making this donation. We are all extremely proud to support such a worthwhile organisation, but at the same time we are constantly humbled by the incredible work that the charity undertakes.”

Janey Hellmen Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser at CHSW added: “This year marks Charlton Farm’s 10th birthday and Smart has been supporting us ever since we opened our doors to local families in 2007.  We are so grateful for Smart’s continued support which enables us to make the most of short and precious lives.”

CHSW provides the only hospice care in the South West for children with life-limiting conditions.  This means that these children are not expected to survive into adulthood.  The charity’s three hospices, Little Bridge House in Devon, Little Harbour in Cornwall and Charlton Farm in North Somerset provide respite care and support for those children and their families who have to cope with the most difficult of situations.
