Jonah Gillingham was a typical 15 year old fun loving, adventurous teenager when he was diagnosed with ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia). Jonah, who lives in Guernsey, was transferred to the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children to undergo a bone marrow transplant in November 2014. His family were offered Charly’s House – one of our ‘Homes from Home’ in Bristol and it was there that the family spent Christmas – a Christmas they will always remember. Jonah’s mum Sonia said,

It was perfect and made the whole situation so much easier. Having the house to go back to at the end of a long day was real comfort. I hope the house continues to be a haven for other families as it was for us.”
