Blackwell’s is proud to announce an evening to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Helen & Douglas House, in conjunction with our ‘Medical Matters’ Medical Week.
On Tuesday 26th February at 7pm, we will be joined by Clare Edwards, the Deputy CEO and Director of Clinical Services at Helen & Douglas House. Clare will be talking about palliative and specialist care at Helen & Douglas House, supported by case studies of the many children, young adults and families that use the hospice for respite, emergency and end-of-life care. Consultant Paediatrician, Dr. Emily Harrop, and Nurse Consultant, Karen Brombley will also be present to offer their expertise on the subject.
In 1982, Helen House opened in Oxford as the world’s first children’s hospice, and they have been supporting families from Oxfordshire and the surrounding counties ever since. To mark their 30th anniversary, they have put together a photo exhibition, ‘We Are Thirty’. It documents life at Helen House and Douglas House, and features 30 children and young adults who use the hospice houses, as well as families who have used the hospice in the past. We will be displaying the exhibition throughout Medical Week and on the evening itself.
We will also be holding a raffle with plenty of fabulous prizes to be won, all the proceeds of which will go to Helen & Douglas House.
So please join us in celebrating and supporting this extremely worthwhile cause.
Tickets for this event cost £4, £3 of this will be donated to Helen and Douglas House. Tickets are available at our Customer Service Department, Blackwell’s Bookshop, 48-51 Broad Street, Oxford. Telephone: 01865 333623.
