Charlotte & Hannah’s Fundraiser

We are Charlotte and Hannah and are studying Health and Social Care together at college.

This summer we will be travelling to Romania to volunteer at a summer camp for Romanian children with life limiting illnesses and their families. The summer camps are run by Hospices of Hope who believe that everyone deserves the best possible care at the end of life, no matter where you live or what your background.

As part of their amazing work, Hospices of Hope offer summer camps which provide a much-needed break for children cared for by the Hospices in Romania as well as their families.

The children attending the summer camps all have different backgrounds and needs, for example:

  • Some are affected by rare, life-limiting, or terminal illness and their parents accompany them on the trip.
  • Others have experienced trauma through the death of a close relative.
  • Others are relatives of patients receiving hospice care.

The children who benefit from the summer camps are often completely neglected by health care and social services systems which truly breaks our hearts. This is why we are so passionate to give them the best summer possible.

We both enjoy meeting new people and through our Health and Social Care studies we have gained an understanding of how to care for those with additional needs. We hope to bring these skills to Romania and learn many more skills while there.

We both have previous volunteering experience which we thoroughly enjoyed, knowing we made a difference to help children and adults with additional needs in our community.

We understand the whole family can be greatly affected by caring for a loved one with a terminal diagnosis, we hope we can let the family have some free time while we play, do arts and crafts and have fun with the children and their siblings. We hope that the camp will be as rewarding for the families as it will be for us.

The money we raise will not only cover the cost of us attending as volunteers but also pay for some of the children and their families to attend, ensuring these deserving children have the most amazing experience.

We would really appreciate any donations to help us with our journey to give the children and their families a summer they will never forget. Any money raised over our target will go directly to Hospices of Hope.


Thank you for reading.
