It was a real privilege to hear from Sally Mitcham, a Martin House mum, we are really grateful for her time and were all hugely inspired to hear about her lovely family. Sally writes a blog and has written about the first time she visited the hospice too – ‘It’s a welcome and warmth. The feeling of being well looked after and peace. A little slice of paradise. A weekend that meant more to us than I thought any holiday could.’

During the breakfast we also heard from Tim Halstead (Chair of Trustees) and Martin Warhurst (Chief Executive) who explained that Martin House currently support over 400 families like Sally’s and over 170 more in bereavement care too. However they also explained that at the moment there are well over 3,000 children and young people living with a life limiting condition in North, East and West Yorkshire so there is lots more to do and lots more to raise.

A special thank you to David Farnell of Shoosmiths who went away with lots of plans and ideas to help raise more funds in order to support our children, young people and their families.

Martin House deliver high quality, holistic and specialist palliative care services for children and young people with life limiting conditions, and their families, from diagnosis to death and beyond. Our mission is to help children and young people with a life limiting condition, along with their families, to live well and fully, offering the best possible end of life care and support to the family in bereavement.
