The partners and staff at Gladman have adopted The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice as their special charity. Gladman designed and built, at no charge, The Donna Louise in Stoke on Trent. This gift was worth over £2 million to the Trust.
The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice cares for children, who, due to illness or accident, have life limiting conditions. This means that they are not expected to live beyond their teenage years.
The Donna Louise provides physical, practical and emotional support to both the child and their family. Respite and end of life care is provided at the hospice, as well as in the family’s own home. The hospice also offers ongoing bereavement counselling and support for the whole family and the service covers the whole of Staffordshire and Cheshire.
