Julia’s House cares for babies, children and teenagers with life-shortening or life-threatening conditions and provides support for the whole family - mums, dads, siblings and even grandparents.
This care is regular, frequent and flexible, happening wherever and whenever parents need it. Julia’s House relies on donations, fundraising and legacies for 95 per cent of its funds. This lifeline for families only happens thanks to the kindness of local people.

Be a Life Changer: run for a family who are running out of time
Imagine finding out your child has an incurable disease and will die young. Now imagine that happening to two of your children. Lisa and Andy’s life was devastated when they discovered that Annabelle, 14, then Robbie, six, had Junior Battens Disease, a condition which has left them both blind and facing seizures and dementia.
“Nobody knows when their last day on earth will be which is why we need to live each day to the full,” said Lisa. “Every single day I think: is this the day the big seizure will come? It is agony to live with that. I can’t believe what has happened to our family, the impact on all of us.”
Will you run to help a family facing unimaginable heartbreak? Put on your running shoes and make a life-changing difference in 2020…
