I met the formidable Barbara Taylor-Bradford last year and she signed her latest book Playing the Game for my mum. Unfortunately, my mum couldn't lift the hefty tome onto the plane, so left it here with me. This, along with some NEW lipsticks that were just a bit too pink for me, some 90s CDs that I probably won't listen to again and a brand new photo album went to the Helen and Douglas House shop in Newbury.
Helen & Douglas House has the time and expertise to care for children and young adults with life-shortening conditions and support their families. The two hospice houses offer specialist symptom and pain management, medically-supported short breaks and end-of-life care, as well as counselling and practical support for the whole family.
Our aim is to help every young person - aged from birth to 35 – who visits us from Oxfordshire and surrounding counties, live life to the full....even when that life is short
