If you love your job then getting up each Monday morning is something to look forward to rather than a chore.  I’m lucky, I work in the charity sector and each and every day I can go home knowing that I’ve made a difference to someone’s life.  That is incredibly reward...

Let yourself enjoy things. When you lose a child, there is a ‘noise’ in your head constantly, thoughts of your child whirling around in a ‘white noise’ that soaks up energy and capacity to think. It’s exhausting. After Evie died I forgot to do the things I loved; cooki...

We are always looking for different ways that businesses can support us.  Some join us on our Business Friends programme and make an annual donation.  Others though donate stock to us, so that we can sell it and raise the money that we need to continue our work.  The D...

Well, I'm now 10 days into Dry January and it is a lot harder this year than last.    As we approach the anniversary of Evie's death tomorrow, a glass or three of red wine would have been great.  If only a great place to hide for an hour.  But I know that she would hav...

When Evie's diagnosis became terminal we elected to bring her home so that she could spend her last few weeks surrounded by those that loved her and in familiar surroundings. ITV wanted to do a short piece on how Julia's House Hospice worked with CLIC Sargent and us to...

That's the sight that greeted visitors to Swanage over the Bank Holiday weekend. Evie's Jurassic 13 was a 13 mile hike from Worth Matravers to Studland Point to raise awareness and funds for Evie's Gift and Julia's House Hospice. The walkers were all decked out in pink...

When children end up in hospital, it's pretty torrid time for the parents.  You have the worry about your child's health and if you are there for any number of days, then sleep and a decent meal become rarities.  The NHS is brilliant at what it does, and quite rightly...
