The Children's Hospice South West is marking its 25th anniversaryby encouraging all people who need its support to come forward.

The charity, which now has three hospices across the region, says its team of carers can give parents a much-needed break from looking after an ill child.

"I think there's still a huge message to get out about what is the reality of the Children's Hospice and it's so important because we still get families who delay coming to us for help because they say I was fearful."

– Mandy Robbins, Children's Hospice SW Director of Care
