Once again, thanks to our many loyal clients, we collected over 60 Easter eggs for the annual Easter Egg Hunt at The Bluebells in North Hampshire, the UK’s first purpose-built respite holiday home for families with a seriously ill child.
The Bluebells is run by the charity Sebastian’s Action Trust, which provides support for families of seriously ill children from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond and offers them the chance for a break together, with help from specially-trained staff.
Over 150 people took part in the now traditional Easter Egg Hunt as part of a fun day for families in the grounds of The Bluebells.
Eggs which were not used in the hunt are being donated to ill children in hospital or at home who receive visits from Sebastian’s Action Trust outreach workers.
Pictured are Jo Brown, our Support Consultant and Lauren Harris, Sebastian Action Trust’s Family Liaison Co-ordinator with the fantastic haul of eggs ready for the hunt.
Sebastian’s Action Trust is an incorporated charity based in Bagshot, Surrey. Developed from the vision of one very special nine-year-old boy and launched just twelve days before he died of cancer in 2003, Sebastian’s aim for the charity was to provide a place where life-limited children and their families can holiday together away from the rigours of hospital appointments, gruelling treatment schedules and prying eyes. He wanted to create a private place where memories could be made which would last a lifetime, even if that life was to be cruelly cut short.
The charity predominantly supports families in Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Wiltshire and Hampshire.
