Whilst everyone may have their favourite charities, there are 3 that are particularly supported by organisations and groups in the village. They are:
The Shakespeare Hospice, based in Stratford upon Avon, are an independent local charity providing specialist End of Life and supportive care for people living in South Warwickshire and the North Cotswolds who are affected by life-limiting illness. The majority of our patients are living with cancer, but we also help patients with other life-limiting illnesses such as degenerative neurological diseases, end-stage heart failure and HIVAIDS. Our nursing care and multi-disciplinary support enables patients to continue living at home with their families while receiving active treatment, or for as long as possible when active treatment has ceased.
Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA) was established in 2003 and exists to provide a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service to the counties of Warwickshire, Northamptonshire and the Milton Keynes area.
Their service does not simply transport patients to the nearest hospital; it routinely carries senior Doctors and Consultants to the scene of incidents in just minutes, providing lifesaving treatment and medication at the scene and en-route to hospital. In essence, it takes the hospital to the patient, providing the best possible chance of a full recovery.
A pioneering charity saving lives and changing futures, through research,campaigning and education – removing the fear of breast cancer for good.
