How can you contribute on the night

Please dig deep and support us.  All the money you give will help our nurses to support children and families in their own homes – from diagnosis, through life, at the end of life and in bereavement. Jessie May relies on the support of people like you to ensure it can continue to run and to grow to support more families. In the next financial year, it will cost £1.9m to run Jessie May and around 80% of that needs to come from fundraising – every pound really will make a difference!
