Jon Bon Jovi kicks off our Australian Icons of Rock guitar.  Huge thanks to Jon and his management for their kindness. Next up to sign are The Dead Daisies.

This is what chART is all about. Beautiful photos just received from Eden House Christmas party on 1st December. The children and their families had a wonderful time...the smiles say it all! We were delighted to organise and fund the fantastic entertainer; Joel Dickinson, and fabulous face painter; Gemma, from Silly Gilly Party Fun. Huge thanks to everyone who supports chART, helping to bring about special days like this one for children and young adults with life-limiting conditions and their families. It really does mean so much to them. XXX

John Bromley, our sponsored events coordinator, ran his first full marathon for chART on 20th October 2013 in York. He ran all 26 miles in the cold for the kids. He took longer than he hoped at just under 5 hours and we are all so proud of him. You can still make all his blisters, aches and pains worthwhile by making a donation, by just going to our donate page. Thank you John.

Our patrons Exit State were only to happy to perform an acoustic set for the children, young people and staff of Claire House Children's Hospice on Saturday 19th October 2013.  Everyone had a fantastic time and we don't think it will be too long before the boys are back.  Huge thanks to Roy Bright, Phil Ireland, Peat Hicks & Matt Harris and their management Mark Appleton & Lynne Hampson of Rocksector Records.

chART wishes to thank Claire Tierney of Paint Pot & Cheryl Hook & Siobhan Howell of Melt for choosing chART as their charity for the fundraising weekend at Backridge Farm.  We had a fabulous time. It's well worth a visit to this fabulous place. & Huge thanks to everyone who came to support us, joined in the raffles and met our mascot, Ladybird Elise.
