Julia's House Wants £3.4 Million For Its 10th Birthday


12:02am 2nd June 2013

Dorset's children's hospice - Julia's House - needs your help to celebrate its 10th birthday.

The charity is looking for special prizes to auction off to raise the £3.4m it needs this year to continue caring for around 100 children in their own homes across the county and in its Corfe-Mullen based hospice.  

A signed West Ham football shirt and a track day at Silverstone in a Ginetta G50 racing car have already been donated.

Items for prizes Juila's House is looking for include holiday homes, boats, beach huts or for people who are willing to donate a day trip or a weekend break.

Julia's House receives less than 10 percent of its total annual funding from the government. It organises social activities and provides support for the whole family as well as child they are looking after.

Businesses who do corporate entertaining could offer a VIP box or tickets to a sporting event.

If you do have an auction prize you would like to donate phone Nikki Judd on 01202 644 220.
