The climb has been organised to raise money and awareness for children’s hospice, Hope House in Oswestry. It takes over £4million each year to run the hospice and they are currently caring for over 320 terminally ill children and their families. This doesn’t just include the physical, psychological and spiritual care for the children affected, but also bereavement support, in all its forms, for the siblings and other family members left behind. Hope House also offers bereavement services to the larger community, helping a wide number of children over an extremely traumatic time in their lives. At this time 93 families are receiving post bereavement support.
It is hoped that the Kilimanjaro climb will raise a minimum of £4,000. This money will go a small way to help the staff of Hope House ease the final days of terminally ill children.
