The team at Optimus have devised a plan to smash fundraising records and really make a difference to the families that CHSW support.

Children’s Hospice South West is a charity committed to making the most of short and precious lives. The care offered at each of their hospices is not simply about medical and nursing care for sick children, but about enriching the lives of children and their families.  Since it started, the charity has founded 3 hospices across the South West; Little Bridge House, Charlton Farm and Little Harbour. Fundraising is essential and the charity relies on £8.5 Million of support to cover the running costs and continue to keep doing the amazing work that they do.

This year the hospice is celebrating their 25th anniversary which is the basis of Optimus’ first fundraiser, 25 bags (full of toys, books, and bedding) for 25 years. Other fundraising activities planned include; Plymouth Half Marathon in April, the Rainbow Run in June, Sky Dive in September plus many more scheduled events throughout the year.

Mark Russell, Chief Executive Officer of Optimus commented: “Myself and the team visited the Little Harbour hospice and were so touched by the work they do we wanted to get involved in a more formal and proactive capacity. With our head office in Devon, we are big champions of the South West and Children’s Hospice South West serves hundreds of families right on our doorstep.”

Lorna Damella, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser for CHSW said: “We are so pleased to have Optimus on board supporting the charity in our special 25th Anniversary year. We rely almost entirely on donations to continue offering the care and support that we do to the children and families we look after. We are looking forward to the year ahead!”
