We help sick children and their families across Cumbria and the North East, by supporting over 10 medical teams and parents in the community. We try to solve any issues that can make life more bearable to families with a poorly child or those who have suffered the loss of a child. We do this in memory of our daughter Evie who died in 2015 after 6 months in hospital.
Team Evie was set up in 2015 in memory of Evie Johnston, an amazing and inspirational baby! Evie suffered from multiple, serious cardiac, respiratory and digestive problems and spent the majority of the 6 months she was with us in the RVI in Newcastle. (not sure if you want that in? )
Our mission is to help sick children and their families who face similar challenges to those Evie faced in her all too short life. This mission is achieved by raising vital funds to support 10 different wards and medical teams across the North East and Cumbria in four main areas;
Transportation to Hospital
Providing essential items to parents to get them through a few days in hospital so they can concentrate on their child. We also provide vital equipment for forward thinking and cutting edge staff training.
We provide sensory & physiotherapy equipment, TVs, DVDs, iPads, portable libraries, busy boxes and much more to help make time in hospital more bearable for children and their families
In the Community
We provide vital equipment for families to look after their poorly children at home, while still having the peace of mind to get some rest - SATs monitors, suction machines and much more...
We offer a monthly support group, online forum, free Cuddle Cot service, and breaks away for recently bereaved parents.
Team Evie aims to:
- Help sick children and their families
- Support bereaved parents
- Support the work of the Community Nursing Teams
- Support the work of the NECTAR ambulance team
