The Charity

Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice supports babies and young children who have complex illnesses or disabilities from birth to age five. We work to ensure that very unwell children can enjoy the best possible quality of life and we support their families throughout their journey.
Our three children’s hospices, based in Coventry, Liverpool and Middlesbrough, offer respite, palliative and end of life care for children, as well as support for the whole family. With a range of play therapies and fun activities, our team of specialists work together to make every moment of childhood count. As a charity, we provide our services free of charge to families who need us, relying on donations from the public.

What about insurance?

The centre holds public liability insurance.  You will not be liable for accidental damage to equipment, except where damage has been caused as a result of recklessness or wilful negligence.

How it works

On payment of the deposit we will contact your chosen charity to let them know you are supporting them.

Once you have raised the minimum donation the charity will cover the cost of the challenge, which is £450.00 for Kent and £400 for Gloucestershire, then the they keep the remaining donation to benefit their charity.

When you select the fundraising funding option you agree to raise the minimum of £1000 (Kent) or £800 (Gloucestershire) per person in sponsorship for your charity.  You agree to send sponsorship money to the charity as they raise it.  100% of the minimum sponsorship required must be sent to the charity no later than eight weeks prior to the challenge. We then invoice the charity for the £450 (Kent) or £400 (Gloucestershire) cost per person, this means that the charity receives a minimum of £550 (Kent) or £400 (Gloucestershire) per person in profit from each challenger.
