Our aims

At the moment, the main aim of Bethany’s Smile is to raise a minimum of £300,000 to build Smile Cottage – a holiday/respite home, in Yorkshire, where families can go and spend quality time plus build happy memories, when they are faced with the news that their child has a very short life expectancy. Bethany’s Smile also supports families of poorly children in other ways such as providing computer equipment for children to use if they are in hospital long term and unable to go to school, desks for their bedrooms, insurance for ‘final’ holidays and we also look to fulfil other requests for help for children which are made through hospitals, hospices and social workers. All requests made are put to the trustees for consideration.
