Demelza creates Baby Shark challenge video

22 August 2018
Children supported by Demelza have created their own #BabySharkChallenge video.
Nurses and healthcare assistants can be seen dancing around a parked Demelza Mini Cooper at our hospice in Sittingbourne, Kent, along with children and their siblings sporting shark fins, rubber rings and other fun props. 

The children, aged four to 15, were joined by Rochester mum-of-four Donna Fenn, who went viral earlier this month with her own take on their challenge. 

Demelza hopes the video will help to challenge common misconceptions that hospices are ‘sad, gloomy places.’ 

Demelza’s Creative Services Manager Stuart Hubbard, who choreographed the video said: “There is a common misconception that hospices are sad, gloomy places but hopefully this video shows people just how much fun there is be had at Demelza. 

“Everyone working at Demelza strives to bring the most joy, fun and relaxation to the lives of children and families we meet. Our network of volunteers also bring energy, passion, and dedication to help make Demelza all about life.”

Demelza provides specialist care and emotional support for children with terminal conditions and their loved ones, so they can enjoy time together as a family, for as long as they have. 

By making a donation, Demelza can help more children to receive the care and attention they need to live the most fulfilling life and that they and their family have the opportunity to build precious memories.
