CHAS (Children’s Hospice Association for Scotland)
CHAS is the only charity in Scotland that provides vital hospice services for children and young people with life-shortening conditions.
CHAS offer care for the whole family in their two children’s hospices, Rachel House in Kinross and Robin House in Balloch. They also run a homecare service called CHAS at Home helping families in their own homes across Scotland when they need it most.
CHAS support over 250 families, as well as a significant number of families who receive bereavement support. Their services are funded mainly through the generosity of supporters who help to raise over £7 million needed each year to provide these hospice services.
All funds raised from the Kilimanjaro challenge and other charity events throughout the year were split equally between these two charities.
Fundraising throughout 2005 and 2006 resulted in £22,609 being donated to CHAS.
