Once again, the management and staff at Yatton-based Smart Architectural Aluminium have made a Christmas donation to Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW), with the company’s managing Director, Eddie Robinson, presenting a cheque for £2,250 to Kate Fisher from the charity

This is the sixth year that the company has made such a donation, as Eddie Robinson explained: “All the staff at Smart agreed that rather than giving cards and gifts at Christmas, we should do something different and a charitable donation to the CHSW’s Bristol hospice, Charlton Farm was the unanimous choice. Being so close to our Yatton site, there is a very strong local connection and over the years we have been privileged to get an insight into the care and support that the Hospice provides to children with life threatening and life limiting conditions. We’re very pleased to be able to support their outstanding work”.

Kate Fisher, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser at CHSW said: “Christmas is a special time of year for all families, and at Children’s Hospice South West this is no different. At Charlton Farm, we will be welcoming six families to stay with us over Christmas to create extra special memories as a family. It’s only thanks to the continued support of companies like Smart every year that we can continue to provide our service of respite, emergency and end of life care to local families when they need it most.’

CHSW provides the only hospice care in the South West for children with life-limiting conditions. Its three hospices, Little Bridge House in North Devon, Charlton Farm in North Somerset and Little Harbour in Mid Cornwall provide respite care and support for those children and their families who have to cope with the most difficult of situations. CHSW currently provides care for in excess of 400 families – of these, some come for palliative care, some for emergency care and many for planned respite and a rare opportunity for a break. The charity provides a loving and caring environment for every member of every family who stays.
