7Oaks Triathlon 2019 charity places now available

2019 Triathlon Charity Places

We are pleased to announce that ten charity places are now available for the race. The places have been donated by the club to ellenor a charity supporting families facing terminal illness across Kent and Bexley.

ellenor offers a different approach to care for children facing life limiting illnesses, providing vital care in the comfort of their own home with Mum and Dad by their side. ellenor were the UK’s first children’s full hospice at home service, and are still one of only a very few acute services providing oncology and end of life care to seriously ill babies, children and young adults in the home. They support children by providing chemotherapy in their own homes, which can reduce the need for lengthy hospital visits, enabling the child to remain around their families at a difficult time. ellenor offer a seamless service of care for children and young people, age 0-25; working closely with a variety of care providers to provide chemotherapy, palliative care, end of life care. But it doesn’t stop there, ellenor also cares for the whole family and recognises every member of the family needs support. ellenor cares 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and relies on the generous support from the community for funding.   

‘Nothing can prepare you for having a life-limited child. Mia has brain damage caused by a bleed on the brain and in her first few days of life we faced saying goodbye to our daughter. Now with the support of ellenor we can care for her at home. We could be blessed with five to 15 years with our precious daughter and every year we reach will be a milestone. I feel safe knowing ellenor will be by our side throughout.’ Liz.
