A wonderful new fundraising campaign has been launched by an amazing 13 year old girl who is being supported by Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service. Holly George is a courageous teenager who is looked after by the Alexander's Care Team. Her two sisters have recently done some fundraising to help us build Berkshire's children's hospice and Holly, although poorly, is determined not to be left out, so she is starting a campaign asking people to donate £1 for a virtual hug – 1 Million Hugs For Holly. She has set up a Facebook page HERE and an online giving page HERE. On Twitter Holly is using the hashtag #HugsForHolly and her campaign account on Twitter is @hugsforholly.

Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service was founded in 2007 with the aim of providing a dedicated children's hospice service for all children with life limiting and life threatening illnesses in Berkshire and beyond.
Families tell us that they find it difficult to find the right support at the right time and we understand that it is the whole family who need to be looked after. Our ultimate aim is to provide well co-ordinated support, which is available from the point of diagnosis for as long as families want.
We currently fund Alexander's Nurses who provide quite unique specialised care and respite by regularly supporting families in their own homes – our service is unique because we work very closely with all our local NHS hospitals so that families receive a 'joined-up service'.
