 May 2019- £350.00 are donated St Peter’s Hospice Southwest

It is sad to hear nearly on the daily basis that some of our friends/colleges/ family members talk about their loved one being taken to hospice. But at the same time we are so proud and thankful to all the hard work and support St Peter’s Hospice is doing to help people with their last days with us. What an amazing group pf people who are dedicating their lives to help people with their last breaths! We hope that even this small amount can bring a bit of piece to someone’s heart.

April 2019- £350.00 are raised for SEPSIS Trust Org.

2018 was a year of us letting as many people know about sepsis as possible. At the start of our journey we didn’t have a clue how many people are and were affected by this life threatening condition. BE FAST – dial 999 if you have a concern!

March 2019 – £195.00 are raised for the smallest and loved ones – our pets! PDSA

 They bring us smiles and it was time for us to take care of them and see wiggly tales and hear purrs. They can’t take care of themselves but we can make it easier for PDSA to help as many as possible in need.

January – February 2019 – £375.00 donated to Carers Support Centre

Last year we were encouraged to shout out and let as many people as possible know about the dangers of Sepsis and how to recognize that one might have one in order to stop people from having life threatening conditions and even deaths. We were closely touched by Sepsis diagnosis since one of our team members was hospitalized but luckily doctors spotted the main symptoms fast.

You can stop it - act now! Bristol Serviced Lettings Sepsis

We encourage you to stop and just think when you or some one you know doesn’t feel well and having flue-like symptoms – CAN IT BE SEPSIS!?

January 2018- February 2018 – #TCT- Teenage Cancer Trust – We raised £425.00

We are so honored to be part of Liz Child’s story and be able to help even with a donation. We hope that it will help at least one person to go through the tough times ahead. 

Our remarkable Tom Child

Tom was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma, a rare liver tumour in July 2004.He was only 8 years old, but he took chemotherapy and surgery in his stride despite all the difficulties it presented. He was treated by amazing teams in Bristol Children’s hospital and in Birmingham Children’s hospital. Sadly the cancer came back; his only hope was a liver transplant. We were incredibly blessed that Tom received a transplant in November 2005.

Remarkably he just got on with life again; he tolerated taking daily medications and the numerous monitoring visits to both hospitals and putting up with a mum that worried about everything! Most of all Tom was grateful for his life and really wanted to be a normal lad and not defined by his cancer.  He succeeded.

In the autumn of 2015 he relapsed with the same cancer, unheard of by the medical profession for a relapse to happen 10 years on.  A hideous and cruel shock for everyone. Again he faced the illness with composure and optimism supported by his long term girlfriend, his parents, sister and brother.

He was treated with various chemotherapy drugs but sadly they could not halt the tumours spread. Tom died at the age of 20 in January 2017.

Tom was treated in the specialist Teenage and Young Adult unit (TYA) at Bristol Oncology Centre. This centre was funded and is partly staffed thanks to the charity Teenage Cancer Trust. We will always be grateful that the facilities were there to provide the support for Tom and our family as a unit when we needed it the most.

Since Tom’s death we have already raised a significant amount for the charity through the support of friends, family events and sporting challenges.

However when we heard that TCT was to be the Charity of the year for the 2018 London Marathon our hearts reacted by passing our brains! Mum Liz, sister Tash and brother Matt applied for places and got them! None of us had ever entered a marathon and did not really have it in our plan for 2018; but in honour of Tom we have to try for this great charity. We know it won’t be easy but have excellent support. Rob, Tom’s dad will be there to cheer us on and listen to us all moaning about the training and the injuries. It is his turn to spectate after he cycled London to Paris last year for TCT.’

Bristol Serviced Lettings charity work for helping raise sepsis awareness September 2017

I KNOW SEPSIS 2017

This year Bristol Serviced Lettings would like to dedicate spare time to bring awareness of SEPSIS to all loved ones, all our friends and our customers.

This life threatening condition kills more people than breast cancer, bowel cancer and prostate cancer put together!

We were suddenly effected by this not widely known disease last year, when one of our team members was hospitalized but thankfully it was cough on time and did no drastic damage in one’s life….but many people do not survive and have life-long disabilities after.

Please help us raise awareness!!! Promise to tell at least one more person about this horrific ‘flue-like’ condition that can end in death!

Just ask ” Could it be SEPSIS”?

Sepsis is not a well know condition but kills more people a year in UK than bowel cancer, breast cancer and prostate cancer put together.

Sepsis is a life-threatening condition that arises when the body’s response to an infection injuries its own tissues and organs. Patients with the most severe forms of sepsis are up to five times more likely to die than patients with a heart attach or stroke.

Sepsis will feel like ‘flu’. Infections which can five rise to sepsis are common, and include lung infections (pneumonia), water infections, infections in wounds, bites or the joints, and problems like burst ulcers.If you have, or have recently had a fever and develop any of these symptoms CAL 999:

  • Slurred speech or confusion

  • Extreme Shivering or muscle pain

  • Passing no urine (in 18 hours a day)

  • Severe breathlessness

  • ‘I know something’s badly wrong with me’

  • Skin that’s mottled, bluish or very pale.

Caught early, the outlook is good for the vast majority of patients. It is crucial not to delay seeking medical attention.
