LifeLites VisIt Herefordshire

The LifeLites team visited Herefordshire to show members of the Freemasons the new technology being used to help life-limited and disabled children using hospice services across the British Isles. The technology gives them the chance to play, be creative, control something for themselves and communicate, through the magic of assistive technology. The Oculus virtual reality headsets enable the children to be released from the their physical confines and virtually experience group activities and to join in with others. The out going Charity Steward Nick Swan and his successor Tim Bridgland-Taylor along with Graham King the deputy head of Freemasonry in Herefordshire were given the opportunity to experience this new technology first hand within Hereford Cathedral.

The visit to Herefordshire also gave LifeLites out going CEO Simone Enefer-Doy a chance to introduce the new CEO Rob Lightfoot to Herefordshire Freemasons new Charity Steward Tim Bridgland-Taylor and Deputy Head Freemason Graham King. Simone and Rob also thanked the Herefordshire Freemasons for all their help and generosity over the years. Over the past year alone Herefordshire Freemasons have donated in excess of £2,000 to this deserving charity.

The new technology is expensive to provide, Simone said that the quantity of units supplied depends on the number of children in each location but on average it costs £50,000 to provide the equipment and support package for 5 years. The ability for the children to use this technology in the short time they are at the Hospice is invaluable during their end of life care. We couldn’t continue to support children using every children’s hospice service without people like you.
