During our Autumn production of Oklahoma! in 2018, we held multiple bucket collections throughout each performance, and managed to raise an amazing £539.77, which we donated to SALOS’ chosen charity, Jessie May.
It was great to hear where the money will be going and to find out how it will help local families. Thank you to everyone who kindly donated!
Jessie May supports families who have children with life limiting illnesses. Children who will sadly not live to reach adulthood. Families with a terminally ill child often find juggling ’round the clock care with everyday tasks an overwhelming struggle. Parent and their children cannot do the things you and I take for granted; things like having a job, going on a family outing , or simply being able to sleep through the night.
Jessie May’s nurses visit these families in their own homes and provide expert care for terminally ill children. These visits enable parents to step away from their caring responsibilities for a few hours, enabling them to pop out to the shops, help their other children with their homework or simply to sit down and eat dinner.
