Demelza Hospice Care for Children has been chosen as the 2019 charity for Kite Packaging’s Regional
Distribution Centre in Sittingbourne, a move which has seen Kite’s Sittingbourne team donate £1000
to the charity.
Demelza is an organisation that provides care for families who are struggling to cope with a serious
or terminal illness diagnosis given to one of their children.
The charity aims to give babies, children, young people and their families a strong level of support
and the best life possible.
Their care services and facilities focus on promoting personal freedom and choice, providing children
with an environment to have fun and express themselves without ever compromising on safety.
The hospice has a committed team made up of support workers, registered nurses, healthcare
professionals and volunteers who offer respite care, therapies and a range of support services.
These in-house programmes include support for siblings, youth transition into adulthood, end of life
care and symptom management.
Kite’s team at its Sittingbourne branch were delighted to be able to award the cheque to the
dedicated team at Demelza and see them in action in their day to day life.
A community fundraiser for the charity said: “Thank you for helping Demelza Hospice Care for
Children. Your donation means that we can continue to help children with terminal conditions and
their loved ones, so they can enjoy their time together as a family.”
