Pip Woods has been appointed as an ambassador for Julia’s House

We are really proud to announce that Rockley's Managing Director, Pip Woods has been appointed as an ambassador for Julia's House. Rockley has been a long-standing supporter and fundraiser for this remarkable charity over the years and in her new role, Pip will help to tell the story of the bespoke, holistic and local care offered by the Dorset and Wiltshire children’s hospice charity.

Pip was a member of the Julia’s House HIIT Squad, a team of local business leaders, former AFC Bournemouth Manager Eddie Howe and Julia’s House Chief Executive Martin Edwards, who took part in a gruelling two-hour high intensity interval training workout in March to raise £60,000. She has been selected alongside Tim Brown MBE, Managing Director of Superior.

Martin commented: “It is this level of commitment and enthusiasm that makes Pip and Tim perfect ambassadors for Julia’s House.

“They constantly go the extra mile, knowing how vital their support is to the families that we care for.

“We are delighted to have them on board as ambassadors.”

Pip said: “Julia’s House is the most wonderful charity and really does provide an amazing and truly inspirational level of support for all the children and families it cares for. “Having been involved with the charity for many years now, I am absolutely delighted, proud and honoured to become an ambassador and to continue to support Julia’s House in all the fantastic work they are doing.

“Through time we have adopted Julia’s House as our company charity at Rockley Watersports and it really has very much become a way of life for all of the team and our students. Whenever there is an opportunity to help or get involved, we do.

“From head shaves to runs, siblings’ weekends to HIIT challenges and more recently with our team volunteering at the hospice during the lockdown to tidy the garden up, our team are so proud and happy to be help and support this brilliant charity.”

Julia’s House provides support to the families of children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. Its two hospices in Corfe Mullen and Devizes, Wiltshire, are currently on standby for use by the NHS in the event of hospital services being overwhelmed during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The regular respite and support, plus emergency and end-of-life care, is provided completely free to families thanks to the generosity of the local community. Julia’s House relies on public donations, fundraising and legacies for 95 per cent of the money needed to run its vital service.

Preparing young people for their first residential trip (for the youngsters) >

Every young person is unique - some come across as confident, energetic leaders, whilst others shy away from the limelight to work away in the background. Here at Rockley, we celebrate the achievements of all our students and nurture and mould their skill set. However, no matter how outgoing or confident a young person may be - going on a school trip away from home for the first time, can be scary and daunting which is why we want their first trip away to be a fantastic one! 

We're making waves!
