Children’s Hospice South West
Astra Security has continued its support of Children’s Hospice South West, as part of its ongoing commitment to charities and local communities.
Children’s Hospice South West provides valuable hospice care for children with life-limiting conditions and their whole family. They operate three hospices: Little Bridge House in North Devon, Charlton Farm in North Somerset, and Little Harbour in mid Cornwall.
Amanda Gallagher, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser at CHSW said, “We are incredibly grateful to Astra Security for their support of Children’s Hospice South West. The last two years have brought new and often terrifying challenges to families caring for children with life-limiting conditions, many of whom have seen care packages fall away and their wider support networks disappear because of the pandemic. Our care teams have had to adapt to ensure Covid-safe support wherever and whenever families need it most, including in our three children’s hospices in Devon, Somerset, and Cornwall, and for the first time ever, in families’ own homes but we can only continue to be here thanks to the generous support of individuals and businesses like Astra Security.”

We are so grateful to Astra Security for supporting the team and providing funds for kit.
We are an inclusive team based in an economically deprived area who accept players of different abilities and backgrounds, and as such we need to keep player’s subscriptions to a minimum. We collect enough monies to cover facility fees and registration fees, and we are dependent on the generosity of sponsors such as Astra Security to provide the team with the kit and equipment that they need.
We are entering our seventh season and we compete in the Avon Youth League.

Success followed, and they were crowned Division 11 Champions gaining immediate promotion. They now have two teams competing in the Avon League. There are currently 25 ladies playing across two squads, and they play in Divisions 4 and 8 of the Avon League.
