Charity Lifelites has received a donation that will enable it to continue to offer its services to disabled and life-limited children during the pandemic.

The Shanly Foundation has supported Lifelites with a £2,000 donation, enabling the charity to continue to support children at this time.

Lifelites donates assistive technology for children in Oxfordshire and the surrounding areas, who it said are particularly isolated during the pandemic.

The charity revealed its hope that the technology will enable children using the children’s hospice Helen & Douglas House to play with their siblings and communicate with their parents.

Simone Enefer-Doy, chief executive of Lifelites, said: “We are incredibly grateful for the donation from the Shanly Foundation for our work with Helen & Douglas House children’s hospice in Oxfordshire.

“With our donated assistive technology, these life-limited and disabled children will have the opportunity to play, communicate, and control something themselves.

“For many of them, it is the first time that they will be able to play with their brothers and sisters and say ‘I love you’ to their parents.

“I greatly appreciate that the Shanly Foundation recognises the importance of Lifelites’ work to give children with limited lives, unlimited possibilities.”
