It was fantastic to wake up this morning to hear that the TreeHouse Appeal target of £3Million has been reached so the building costs for the fantastic new children’s hospice can be met. WELL DONE TO THE PEOPLE OF SUFFOLK AND BEYOND FOR THIS MAGNIFICENT ACHIEVEMENT.

I was delighted to join Lesley Dolphin on her show to take part in some of the celebrations and you can hear this short interview by clicking on the link above.

When we visited the new hospice recently we noticed that every room had a ‘wish list’ of items of furniture and equipment needed to enhance the comfort and effectiveness of the new space so the fund raising carries on …..

It seems the right time to re-visit the poem I wrote last spring as the Appeal was launched:

We Have A Hope…

We have a hope

We have a dream

For you a bigger space

Somewhere hugged by trees

In a restful breeze

A woodland homely place.

 

We have a hope

We have a dream

As this land becomes a site

And hard-hatted men

Will drill again

To get foundations right.

 

We have a hope

We have a dream

The pounds will soon roll in

From climbs and runs

Coffee mornings and buns

’Til £3 million’s in the tin.

 

We have a hope

We have a dream

For you a bigger space

Hugged by the trees

In a restful breeze

Your Treehouse now in place.

God Bless – hope to update soon on further news.   Elaine x
