RECENTLY, six brave Jessie May Children’s Hospice at Home supporters went to jail for the charity. The idea behind this fundraiser is that in order to leave jail, bail will need to be reached via fundraising.
Participating in the event are local businesspeople Tom Selman of Panoramic, Gemma Przytocka of Pear Tree plus five world snooker stars. Tom is both a trustee and long-time supporter of the work Jessie May does, and Gemma’s company Pear Tree are regular fundraisers. From the world of snooker players, Jamie Jones and Stuart Bingham are joined by commentator Rob Walker and Matchroom Sports President Barry Hearn.
Jessie May Children’s Hospice at Home works in the southwest of the UK providing specialist palliative nursing care at home for children with life-limiting conditions. Jessie May nurses give expert care throughout a child’s life, extending their support to provide bereavement care for families following the death of a child.
Kim James-Coggins, Partnerships Executive at Jessie May said:
“We are delighted that we have six brave volunteers willing to be jailed for this fun event that will raise vital funds. We rely on the generous support of our supporters to enable us to care for more young people and their families.”
