Software designers raise funds for baby hospice

TruTac, the leading transport and logistics software designers have raised £1,060 for Zoё’s Place Baby Hospice, a registered charity who provide palliative (one-to-one care), respite and end-of-life care for babies and infants aged from birth to five years.

Mary Hodges, who is an analyst with TruTac, raised the funds at the company’s Coventry headquarters during the last year by running a tuck shop and various other activities, including raffles and competitions.

Zoё’s Place Receptionist and Maintenance Manager Debra Lacey recently accepted a special cheque from TruTac on behalf of the Fundraising Team. Muna Chauhan, Corporate Manager thanked Mandy and her colleagues for their fund-raising efforts.

“Everybody from TruTac has been very supportive and generous towards Zoë’s Place and the care we provide” said Muna from the Coventry hospice. “The care and respite provided by the hospice is greatly helped by donations of this sort. We need more and more local business like TruTac to come on board and help us reach our target of £1.3 million. We are truly grateful for all the support, the donation has provided an additional FORTY TWO hours of care, which is truly wonderful”.

Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice was founded by its Chairman of Trustees, Professor Jack Scarisbrick MBE in 1995. He identified that many families, with children suffering from life limiting or life threatening conditions, were desperately in need of specialist facilities where their children could receive respite or palliative care.

Consequently, the idea of a Baby Hospice was born and fittingly the name Zoë’s Place was chosen since Zoë is the Greek word meaning ‘Gift of Life’.

The first Hospice was opened in Liverpool. Its opening signified the beginning of a unique and much needed service. Then, in 2004 a second Zoë’s place was opened in Middlesbrough and in 2011 the third opened in Coventry.
