Hornton 6 Event Partners

Charity partner - Helen & Douglas House

Cherwell Runners and Joggers are delighted to welcome Helen & Douglas House as their event charity. 

Helen & Douglas House helps local families cope with the challenges of looking after a terminally ill baby or child who will die prematurely.

Helen & Douglas House hospice improves the lives of local terminally ill children and their families living in Oxfordshire and the surrounding counties. We provide one-to-one short supportive stays and end-of-life care at our hospice in Oxford, at home and in hospital. Our amazing care makes it possible for families to create happy memories which will last forever. We are a local charity and need to raise £3.6m each year to fund care and over 80% of that comes from voluntary donations.

Nathan who lives in Banbury, was born with Prader-Willi syndrome, a rare genetic condition which is severely life-limiting and means that he needs care 24/7. Nathan was just one year old when he came for his first stay at Helen & Douglas House in 2013. The visit gave his mum some much-needed respite and time to spend with her other children. Nathan now comes to the hospice regularly and as a family they rely on the care that we provide. Despite his complex and increasing medical complications, Nathan is a happy boy who enjoys his time at the hospice in the therapy pool, baking and singing. Nothing stops him trying to do almost anything and his family and hospice staff give Nathan the opportunity to live life to the full.

Mum Jenny said ‘It’s the only place I will leave Nathan. The care he receives at Helen & Douglas House, both physically and mentally, is brilliant. It’s his favourite place in the world.’
