In pictures: Impressive progress made at Alexander Devine hospice site

Great progress has been made on the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice site in Woodlands Park as ground work has now started on the first floor.


Ground was broken on the site of Berkshire’s first children’s hospice in September.

In November, foundations for the hospice had been laid, and charity co-founder Fiona Devine thanked the ‘kind weather’ for the remarkable progress.

Fiona said: “The construction company (Beard) have been working very hard and it’s great they support us. The company even held a sponsored bike ride to raise money for the charity.”

“Every time I visit the site it changes so much, the fireplace is now fitted and it’s big enough for Father Christmas to visit."

She added: “We have reached 101 referrals, which demonstrates the need for this much needed children’s hospice.

“We hope that the building will be finished by this autumn so we can open next spring.”

The charity has now raised £4m, but needs to raise £1m more to reach its target.
