Lifelites is the charity that gives life-limited and disabled children using hospice services the chance to play, be creative, control something for themselves and communicate, through the magic of assistive technology.
The charity has recently received a donation of £2,000 from Leicestershire & Rutland Freemasons to assist with the supply of assistive technology.
Simone Enefer-Doy of Lifelites said, "Lifelites is delighted to have received a donation from the Freemasons. Their recognition of Lifelites’ work and its donation allow us to continue donating assistive technology for life-limited and disabled children using Rainbows children's hospice. It is only thanks to our supporters that Lifelites can donate magical technology that makes the impossible, possible enabling these children to communicate, play, and control something for themselves. We are incredibly grateful.”
Thanks to the Lifelites technologies, care is no longer restricted to hospice buildings. Hospice staff can reach out via video calls to families and children in their own homes with our iPads. The iPads, Eyegaze and other entertainments and communications technology are so portable too, so whenever they are able to visit the children at home, hospice staff can take it with them. Now children can enjoy the sights and sounds in a world of make believe safe in a haven of light-weight and easily transported PODs.
Peter Kinder, the head of Leicestershire & Rutland Freemasons said, “We are a long standing supporter of the wonderful work the Lifelites team do, and the joy they bring to children who are facing life limiting challenges.”
