We’re on a mission to raise £35K this year for Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice and you can be part of it!

2024 marks 35 years of Arlington Park – to mark this, we have set a goal of raising £35,000 for Alexander Devine. It costs £2.8m a year to run the hospice and services, and 83% must come from private funding, gifts and donations. The highlights of the year will be our Outdoor Cinema screening of Wonka in July, and the Firewalk taking place on 13th November, which you can sign up for now and start securing sponsorship.

How to be part of it:

  • The full list of events can be found here, or if you are an Arlington employee, sign up on the app. 
  • The JustGiving page is here if you would like to make a donation.
  • Our team can also guide you through match-funding and how your contribution can be boosted by your company, email events@arlingtonparkreading.com for guidance. 

Why be part of it? 

Alexander Devine was a bright, happy child, born in Berkshire in 2001. He was diagnosed with a brain tumour when he was just four years old, and sadly died aged eight. His parents, Fiona and John found that through their experience, it was clear that Berkshire needed its own children’s hospice. They established the hospice in their son’s name and set about providing a safe place for all – a place to have a safe pair of loving arms as much or as little as needed. Fiona and John’s mission is to reach out to every child and family who needs support, and guidance to make choices over their care from a dedicated team.

We’re committed to supporting this fantastic charity and will be providing plenty of opportunities to have fun while getting involved with the fundraising so please sign up and encourage your colleagues to be part of it too!
