Addo Play names Sebastian’s Action Trust as 2019 supported charity

Published on: 29th March 2019

Addo Play will support the charity with fundraising initiatives, helping to provide respite holidays for sick children. 

The Addo Play team went to see the work being done by Sebastian’s Action Trust as it supports the families of seriously-ill children.

Addo Play aims to raise as much money as possible to help Sebastian’s Action Trust, with a fundraising target of £5000.

To reach this target the company has put together a fundraising schedule for 2019, including office-based activities such as auctions and raffles, to innovative 24-hour challenges and out & about team events.  All donations will go straight to Sebastian’s Action Trust.

The charity’s website reads: “Sebastian’s Action Trust has created the UK’s only purpose-built facility that offers respite holidays to very sick children and their families, enabling precious time to be spent together. Our house, called The Bluebells, has been built in the pretty Hampshire village of North Waltham. It opened in July 2011. Nothing like this previously existed in the UK, making The Bluebells the first of its kind and Sebastian’s vision all the more exceptional.

We also give emotional, social and practical support in many different forms, through an outreach service to families of children battling with life-limiting illnesses and provide meaningful assistance at critical times to those exhausted by the stresses of hospital life and their child’s gruelling treatment.The Trust does not have a restrictive geographical catchment area and already supports families in the South East, principally from Berkshire, Hampshire, Surrey, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire; however, we are happy to welcome families from outside these areas for respite breaks at The Bluebells. At Sebastian’s Action Trust, we care about making life a little easier for these children and young people. With your help we can continue to give support where and when it is needed.”
