The Jessie May Trust – Enabling local terminally ill children and their families to make the most of the precious time they have together.The Jessie May Trust provides specialist nursing and respite care at home for children with a terminal illness. The service is unique. They are the only organisation in the Bristol area to provide specialist nurses and nursery nurses able to provide holistic care for terminally ill children in their own homes, while parents or carers take a break.Each year 50 families in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire use this vital respite service knowing that the same nurse or nurses will care for their child. These and many more also receive bereavement support – the door is open for them both before and after their child has died.

Your support makes an immediate difference to the lives of local families caring for a terminally ill child and could buy them priceless gifts such as:

Peace of mind: safe in the knowledge that their child will be well cared for by one of our registered nurses, parents can enjoy a rare break, the opportunity to do essential chores or even to catch up on sleep after months of interrupted nights.
The choice for their child to remain at home where they feel most comfortable, surrounded by their toys and loved ones.
The chance for Mum and Dad to spend time with other siblings – to attend a school play or read them a story
Or a listening ear – ensuring that our nurses and bereavement support worker are on the end of the telephone when families need to talk.

By pledging to do a sponsored parachute jump you can raise money for The Jessie May Trust and have the experience of a lifetime. Jumping from a perfectly serviceable aeroplane takes a good deal of courage. Just ask your friends, family and work colleagues how much they are prepared to pay not to jump out of an aircraft, and put that money to the cause.
