Meet Harry, and his family

Harry was born prematurely with pulmonary hypertension and a hole in his heart. As well as these life-limiting illnesses, Harry was born with Downs syndrome. He needs constant care – care that requires specialist medical knowledge.

When nurse Laura visits, the family get to stop being carers, and focus on just being parents, siblings or grandparents. They get to play with him, like any other families do.

How you can help children like Harry

You can help families like Harry’s spend time decorating Christmas trees and getting into the festive spirit – instead of fixing feeding tubes and managing care. A Christmas gift of only £70 could help pay for a weekend or evening care visit to a child’s home.

From Marlene, Harry’s mum

“Every Christmas Eve, we each sit down with a hot chocolate and marshmallows to watch Harry’s favourite film, The Snowman™ together. He also loves pulling the tinsel and the baubles off the Christmas tree each year to play with them, when we’re not looking! Chestnut Tree House has given us so many moments like this.

When Laura visits, I get to take off my carer hat and put on my fun mum crown (sometimes straight out of a cracker!). I get to make my little boy laugh. I get to enter his world, play games with him, stick glitter to pretty pictures with him.

These are the moments that make Christmas. For me, for Harry, for the whole family. Thank you so much for helping to make them happen in the past, and hopefully again today.”

Thank you for your kindness
