At the invitation of Andy Goldsmith, Chief Executive of the charity, Veronica and I visited Hope House (https://www.hopehouse.org.uk/home.html), a hospice for children suffering from a fatal illness, based at Morda near Oswestry and also near Conwy in North Wales. It operates across Shropshire, Cheshire and North and Mid Wales. The aim of the charity is to help children enjoy the best quality of life that they can by providing specialist nursing and palliative care whilst helping them to have fun. They also offer bereavement counselling to families who suffer from the death of a child. We were extremely impressed at the excellent work that the charity does, often in the most distressing circumstances. This is a charity that deserves support from us all.
