If your friend is taking on a challenge to raise funds for the Trust and they have set up their own JustGiving page you will be able to sponsor them by clicking the link and selecting their page from the list of our fundraisers https://www.justgiving.com/sat/raisemoney/
Sponsoring them is a great way to show your encouragement for what they are trying to achieve, and what ever you are able to give will be hugely appreciated by Sebastian’s Action Trust.
Every penny and pound donated is truly appreciated, because we know it will help us to continue our work in supporting children with very serious illnesses. Your donation will enable us to make a real difference to families who need our care and support.
Here are some examples of how your donation can help:
£25 - will pay for a selection of books that will go to hospitals offering our Mobile Library Service. Books that put serious illnesses like cancer and leukaemia into words that young children can understand are rare and we know that families value such resources when trying to explain what is happening.
£30 - will pay for a parent to have a soothing massage, energising pedicure or mood enhancing haircut from the team of therapists and hairdressers we take into hospitals twice a year, specifically to pamper tired carers. Our Wellbeing Sessions are recognised as being hugely beneficial to the morale of parents who are vital to the positive spirits of their sick children.
£60 - can help a child with a sick brother or sister to enjoy time with other siblings in similar situations on a special Sibling Activity Day. By offering the opportunity to meet other siblings we know we can help to allay feelings of displacement and isolation following the inevitable change in routine and constant disruption to family life.
£100 - will provide a psychologist for one day at a hospital caring for very sick children. We initiated the psychologist’s post supporting children at the Oxford children’s cancer centre and we are now funding a similar post at Wexham Park Hospital in Slough. By funding this post we are helping families to face the harrowing treatment for life-threatening illness.
£200 - will pay for a family to spend a Reflections weekend with other bereaved families. Being in the company of others who have faced similar tragedy will help bereaved parents and siblings to meet others who face a future without their loved one, in the knowledge that only those who have experienced such situations truly understand.
£2,500 – would pay for the running of The Bluebells, our holiday respite house, for one week.
