Lifelites has been shortlisted in the Digital Leaders 100 Awards 2016 in the category ‘Charity Digital Leader of the Year’. 500 projects have been nominated and Lifelites made the final 100. Lifelites are up against nine other organisations in the same category. It is a voting process and they need as many votes as possible to win the award in their category.
The Provincial Charity Steward, John Hayward commented, “We support Lifelites a lot from the Province and individual Lodges within Warwickshire and we are inspired by the work they do providing technology for terminally ill and disabled children in hospices so they have our vote!”
Voting closes on the 27th May 2016
Lifelites was also a 2015 Nominet Trust 100 winner for their good work with technology.
Through the magic of technology, Lifelites gives life-limited and disabled children in hospices opportunities they wouldn’t otherwise have. They provide specialist entertainment and educational technology packages for these young people to learn, play, be creative, control something for themselves and communicate – for as long as it is possible. This is done for 9,000 children at every baby and children’s hospice across the British Isles. For the brethren of Warwickshire, this mean Acorns here in Birmingham and Zoe’s Place in Coventry. Lifelites began in 1999 as a Millenium project with the Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys before becoming a stand-alone charity in 2006.
