We'd like to give one of our volunteers Trevor some kudos. If that's not dedication, we don't know what is!
Thanks Trevor, for your continued support, energy and ideas - we couldn't do anything without our volunteers, you all make it possible to continue our work at the hospice.
We at Zoe's Place would like to say "Thank-you very much" to St Francis of Assisi, Catholic Church Bedworth, for their on-going fundraising for us.
Their hard work and dedicated support is something that we very much appreciate, and makes such a difference to us! As with all of our supporters, we hope that you all know what a difference your help makes to our little hospice.

We're appealing for you to be a HERO for Zoe's Place Baby Hospice!
The children who visit our hospice each day show us what it is to be brave, and we find them a constant source of inspiration. They are the heroes in our hospice...
You can be a HERO too!
Involve your school or workplace in a one-day event:
Dress up as your favorite Super-Hero for the day
Orgniase a Bake-Sale, with Go-faster enegry bars, or stardust sprinkle cakes
Organise a HERO dvd night with your friends and family
Donate in your own way
We're also going to be at Sainsbury's Court House Green Store on Saturday 27th April.

Himalayas Trek and Delhi Project
Zoё’s Place Baby Hospice Patron Lady Daventry joined a group of intrepid professionals throughout the Coventry and Warwickshire Area in a bid to raise awareness for a forthcoming trek across the Himalayas in aid of Zoё’s Place Baby Hospice in Ash Green, Coventry.
The 10 volunteers all of whom work locally each have to raise a minimum of £3500.00 to take part and are urging people to dig deep into their pockets to help them raise the much needed funds for babies and young children with life-threatening or life-limiting conditions. Muna Chauhan, Zoe’s Place fundraising officer will also be taking part.
The group has a number of fundraising activities planned ranging from a casino night, golf day, charity football match to cake sales and a pub quiz.
The trek will take over place 11 days from November 8th to 19th. The fundraisers will walk up to eight hours a day covering between 7 – 9 miles at a time across varying terrains along the Lesser Himalayan range of Northern India, reaching altitudes of up to 2,483m or 8,147ft. The group will also work on a project in Delhi, refurbishing a hostel which cares for children with cancer.
ACS Building and Maintenance do their bit - and the rest!
ACS Building and Maintenance Ltd have launched their partnership with Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice in Coventry, to raise funds and awareness.
Throughout the year, ACS will be running a host of events including a Corporate Golf Day, Sponsored Walk, Family Fun Day, and a Football Tournament. The company have taken an approach to their fundraising which benefits team work in the organisation, encouraging everyone to take part in their own way.
The team at ACS are hoping to raise enough to sponsor Nursery Nurse skills for 6 months; a contribution such as this will ensure that children at the hospice can access suitable play activities, with particular attention to individual needs. The need to raise running costs is an on-going fundraising appeal.
We’re delighted to be working with ACS this year, and hope that we’ll be able to make great things happen!

London to Paris Cycle Challenge!
Lucy and Jo are undertaking an incredible challenge to raise funds and awareness for Zoe's Place Baby Hospice, and what a journey this will be!
Lucy and Jo are passionate about achieving their target and we'd love you to get on board and support them too!
"We are aiming to raise £3,000 between us but are hopeful that we can exceed this total! The Money we raise will go directly towards the care of the babies and children at Zoe's Place Baby Hospice. It is worth noting that the day to day running costs of the hospice are met almost entirely by charitable donations;quite simply, Zoe's Place would not exist withoug the generosity of the individuals that support it.
Donating through the site below is simple... so please do sponsor us if you possibly can. Every penny will make a difference."
