Demelza Hospice Care for Children has teamed up with Millwall Football Club to bring an exciting new fundraising event for supporters.
Lifelong Millwall FC fans.
Cameron, 15, has an extremely rare chromosomal condition which limits her speech, mobility, and eyesight. David and Denise, her grandparents, became her legal guardians when she was a baby and she was eventually referred to Demelza for care at home in 2015 – the family have been accessing Demelza’s services ever since.
“Denise and I are lifelong Millwall FC fans, so we’re familiar with the old chant ‘No one likes us, we don’t care’; but the truth is, Millwall care more than anyone. The club's support for Demelza - opening up The Den for the Millwall Stair Climb and their pledge to help raise £50k this year - means the absolute world to us because it means Demelza can continue to provide vital support and services to us, and other families like ours,” said David.
Demelza has two children’s hospices - one in Sittingbourne, Kent, and the other in Eltham, South East London – and provides a range of community-based support in the home, as well as a programme of online activities.
