Hammond Hickman Line Shortie Dry Suits
Hammond Drysuits created the “hickman line shortie suit” with a doctor who thought these would be wonderful for children to be able to swim again while going through cancer treatment.
Each suit needs to be a tight seal and measured on an individual basis so if you are in need of one then give PASIC a call and we may be able to get you a little discount!
Mee & Dee
me&dee has a simple mission, to ensure families going through difficult and uncertain times are gifted with memories they can treasure, never losing sight of what truly matters. Because it’s those special moments shared with the ones we love, no matter how complicated circumstances may be, that are most precious of all. They offer a holiday at their lodge in Sherwood Forest.
Torbay Holiday Helpers Network
A network of hotels, tourist attractions and businesses all committed to helping give free holidays and experiences to families who have terminally ill, seriously ill and recently lost children in conjunction with NACCPO (National Alliance of Childhood Cancer Parent Organisations). Please note: Holidays are awarded via referral from the PASIC Coordinator.
