Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS) are absolutely delighted to have won the public vote to become the charity of the year for Davidsons chemist. CHAS supports families throughout Scotland and it is lovely to partner with such a recognised Scottish company as Davidsons.
Criona Knight, Corporate Fundraising Manager, said “ We were overwhelmed with the response by the public and staff at Davidsons, both for the nomination and the amazing number of votes we received, we are truly grateful.
CHAS is a charity that provides the only hospice services in Scotland for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions. It is our mission to ensure every life is lived to the full, no matter how short. We provide specialist palliative care that is tailored to the child and their family’s needs at home or in one of our two hospices, Rachel House and Robin House.
As well as providing expert nursing and medical care, we offer emotional and practical support for the whole family. This means providing opportunities for lots of fun and enjoyment alongside palliative and medical care – even when we’re dealing with very serious illness and end of life care. We help children and their brothers and sisters to live life to the full, creating treasured memories and shared experiences. We work with parents to develop plans that will capture the whole family’s wishes, hopes and dreams at an early stage. We help to make short lives better.
All the support we receive through the Davidsons partnership will go towards enabling us to provide those wonderful moments and we are so grateful for the support. On top of this we look forward to working closely with the teams and helping them get the most out of the partnership. Here’s to a fantastic year!”
