This is Helena
She LOVED life and one of
her favourite things to do
was to help others.
Kindness was her jam!
(she really loved making Jam)
Helenas Hospice Foundation is set up in honour of my iconic Mumma, Helena.
One of my mums favourite expressions was 'Clean your room and you will sort out your life!'
This explains why mine is mess.
Sadly my mum had a brutal and short battle with cancer, The only saving grace was St Richards Hospice who gave my mum the care she deserved.
One of the things that gave my mum great comfort, was having one of their special, easy-access spa baths. It eased her pain and was a little luxury that not all hospices can afford.
When my mum passed, she made me make a promise.
1. Swear less.
2. Get the hospice another bath
Free Drinks & Vending Machines
Out Door Benches
Massages and Holistic Treatments
Sky Tv & Netflix Subcscriptions
So thanks to my gorgeous fucking audiences, we raised some money and donated £25k to St Richards. (i kept one of them)
Hospices are not government funded, this is rubbish! People who are dying deserve access to the very best. In life my mum was incredibly kind and we wanted to continue this legacy. Helenas Hospice Foundation was formed.
At H.H.F we receive cash donations from you, kind audiences and with that we provide hospices with luxury home items.
Items that are not included in the annual budget but make all the difference to the comfort of someones stay. Home comforts, for patients and for their families. Here are some examples.
Helena has five children. Luisa is her eldest daughter and a comedian. With the help of her sister Joasia and her fans she is raising money to donate to this foundation. Our Mum wanted to donate a bath to the hospice which took care of her. Luisa would like to do better than that and donate them two.
Since this charity started in 2018 we have gifted over £68,00 in goods. And thanks to your kind donations, we were able to donate the first £25k will go to St Richards in Worcester. As my mums wish. Thank you.
Luisa used her stand up platform to talk about her Mums story. Her 3rd show Politics For Bitches was critically acclaimed, its avilable to watch for free on youtube, if you connected to the show, please consider making a donation.
The stand up show spring-boarded a documentry series of the same name for the BBC.
If you are a hospice, or a family member or someone that needs our support, please email and we will do our best to help.
