The campaign by Dedworth couple John and Fiona Devine to build the hospice in memory of their son Alexander is gathering momentum all the time.
With 330 children across Berkshire facing life-limiting conditions, John and Fiona's charity - known as the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service - hopes to see the first piece of soil turned within a year on a six-acre site gifted to it in Maidenhead.
Funding has already been secured for the music therapy room and one of the six bedrooms in the hospice, but ultimately £5million need to be raised.
