Opening the doors during a pandemic
In 2020, children’s hospices throughout the UK worked tirelessly to be able to offer their expert care to families with vulnerable children under far more difficult circumstances. But with new restrictions in place, many of these life-limited children and young adults had to isolate at home during the early stages of the pandemic.
Naomi House & Jacksplace’s main goal was to provide high quality care services and to be there for families when they needed support.
In the charity’s summer appeal, we told the story of clinicians battling with the devastating effects of the pandemic – as well as shared the impact of visiting restrictions on children like little Ollie, who has a serious condition that means his muscles can stop working at any time. As Ollie’s mum put it, ‘When we feel like we’re sinking so much of the time, Naomi House keeps us afloat. That’s why, honestly, the last few months have been sheer hell without them.’
Naomi House & Jacksplace asked donors to consider families like Ollie’s and give a gift to help provide the crucial medical care at the hospice they’d need over the summer – and to help them reopen their doors with all the necessary adaptations to ensure their brilliant care.
From Naomi House & Jacksplace
“We worked with Pebblebeach for the first time in 2020 to deliver a Summer appeal. The success of this initial campaign informed the delivery of a robust and impactful Christmas appeal. The team’s expertise, insight and meticulous attention to detail ensured each campaign was managed smoothly – from concept to evaluation.”
