A Royal Wootton Bassett travel agency has raised £100,000 for a children’s hospice over the past five years – helping to fund a special sensory room for seriously ill children.

The Imagine Cruising team, based at Interface Business Park, raised funds by completing personal and company-wide fundraising challenges to raise funds over five years.

The milestone sum has also helped Julia’s House provide a lifeline for families of children with life-threatening and life-threatening illnesses in Wiltshire and Dorset.

Julia’s House is backed by Adver after launching its Together We Care appeal last year to raise vital funds to support the growing number of local children and families who depend on the charity’s care.

Imagine Cruising, specializing in luxury and tailor-made cruises, has supported the association since the opening of the first hospice in Devizes in 2017.

CEO Robin Deller, who led the fundraising efforts, said: “We started working with Julia’s House at the start of their journey in Wiltshire and it has been truly inspiring to follow them along the way.

“It was nice to have the chance to attend their open house recently and celebrate all the great things they’ve accomplished and the fundraising partnership we’ve built over the past five years.

“Since the beginning of our relationship with the local charity, it is with great pride that I can say that we have raised the incredible sum of £100,000 for the hospice.

“I’m really looking forward to continuing our support and I’m so excited to find new ways to help.

“The hospice team works extremely hard, so it’s a pleasure to help them continue to provide their specialist care in our local community.”

Alice Chalmers, Corporate Fundraiser for Julia’s House, said: “We are delighted to have the continued support of the incredible team at Imagine Cruising, and they should all be very proud of their fantastic achievement.

“Throughout the pandemic, they have continued to show their passionate support for the families we care for, and we are so grateful for all of their fundraising efforts.

“We rely on donations to fund our lifesaving care in Wiltshire, so every pound raised makes a huge difference to the families of the critically ill children we support.”

Julia’s House depends almost entirely on donations to provide its exceptional care for the growing number of children with life-threatening or life-threatening illnesses in Wiltshire.

The hospice recently received an outstanding rating from the Care Quality Commission and has been found to treat children and families with “compassion and kindness”.

The charity currently has the option of two more nurses joining the Wiltshire Hospital team.
