Kind-hearted Max takes on second triathlon
A generous schoolboy is tackling his second triathlon in aid of Demelza.

Max Robinson Long, from Westerham, will take on the challenge at Hever Castle on Sunday 27th September.

The eight-year-old also raised more than £1,200 for us last year by doing the same event.

Max will turn nine on 23rd September and he has asked for donations to his fundraising instead of presents – which he also did last year.

 The New Beacon School pupil will be completing a 100m swim in the castle’s lake, a 4k bike ride and a 1.3k run around the grounds.

He completed the 2014 event in 46 minutes 28 seconds and hopes to beat both his time and fundraising total later this month.

Date set for Demelza Community Fun Day

Darth Vader and Disney’s Elsa are some of the characters who are set to appear at Demelza's Community Fun Day.

It will take place at the hospice in Rook Lane, Bobbing, on Sunday 27th September from 10am to 4pm.

It’s a chance for people to have a tour of the hospice and find out more about the care and support offered to children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and their families.

There will be characters from Star Wars and Frozen wandering the grounds and plenty of stalls and games.

Crowds will be entertained by some live music and there will be plenty of refreshments on offer including a hog roast. 

Local radio station SFM will also be there on the day with a roadshow broadcasting live.

 Last year’s event was attended by around 500 people.

Demelza achieves volunteering accreditation

We are delighted to announce Demelza has achieved Investing in Volunteers (IIV) accreditation – which recognises our work with volunteers.

The IIV is the UK quality standard for all organisations which involve volunteers in their work and we are one of only 25 organisations to achieve the title during July 2015.

More than 800 currently have the accreditation throughout the UK, from small community groups to large national multi-branch charities.

Demelza is lucky enough to have more than 1,200 volunteers who support us and without them we couldn’t continue to do what we do.

They help us across all sections of the charity, from fundraising, maintenance in the gardens and helping the chefs in our kitchens to sorting stock at our warehouse, supporting our housekeeping team and working in admin.
