Councillor Asghar Majeed, Mayor of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, recently visited us, along with Lady Catherine Stevenson, High Sheriff of Berkshire 2010/2011.

 

This visit was organized after the Mayor and Lady Stevenson attended the opening of the Helen & Douglas House shop in Windsor on 6th April. 

 

During the visit, they watched a film where parents described how important the charity’s services were to them and staff explained their different roles caring for the children and young adults. This was followed by a tour of both hospice houses, where they met and talked to some of the guests and their carers.

 

 

-       Councillor Majeed,said: “I was very impressed and deeply moved by what I saw on my  visit to Helen & Douglas House and I cannot speak highly enough of the dedicated staff and volunteers to provide such a tremendous facility.  As well as specialist medical care they offer a wide range of social activities and therapies such as the spa, art and music and outings. It is important that we support charities like this that are providing vital services to families livingin The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.”

 

Lady Catherine Stevenson said “I think I speak for both of us when I say that it was a very humbling experience visiting Helen & Douglas House . Thank goodness this hospice is there to help children and young adults with life limiting conditions in Berkshire, live life to the full even when their lives are short.   It is no wonder so many parents are so grateful to them for the invaluable support they provide.

 

Janet Carruzzo, Community Fundraiser said “We were delighted to be able to welcome the Mayor and Lady Stevenson to Helen & Douglas House.  During her time in office as High Sheriff of Berkshire, Lady Stevenson has been extremely supportive of our charity and continues to be so. The Mayor has some exciting plans to encourage local restaurants to raise money for local charities which is fantastic news.  We would not survive without the amazing support we get from people like this and those who raise the £4.5m needed per year to run Helen & Douglas House.”
