Kent charity ellenor has raised an incredible £10,000 thanks to the support of Sleepeezee, helping seriously ill children.

Every year ellenor provides vital end-of-life, cancer and respite care to over 150 children in the comfort of their own homes.  When Sleepeezee were approached by an ellenor supporter trying to arrange a sleepover for the children in an iconic sports stadium, they were delighted to help, providing 100 brand new beds.  Unfortunately despite desperate attempts, a venue could not be secured for the event. So Sleepeezee donated the beds to the 15 ellenor shops across Kent to sell and raise vital funds. A staggering £10,000 was raised thanks to their generosity.

Linda Trew, Head of Fundraising at ellenor said: “We are so grateful to Sleepeezee, this donation has raised enough funds to enable ellenor to provide a complete course of chemotherapy treatment to our children facing leukaemia.  This treatment is done in the sanctuary of the child’s home; we are the only charity in Kent to offer this service. We are looking forward to continue working with Sleepeezee who like us are passionate about keeping families together at home whenever possible.”
