In December 2018 Henry Hallam rang the end of treatment bell signalling five years post the end of treatment. The Hallam family alongside the board of trustees for the charity wanted to make a difference to the oncology families locally and to families with neuroblastoma by creating a unique and invaluable place for families to run too. The first Hugs Children's Cancer Charity Respite home was bought with this in mind.
The respite home is based in South Cornwall, the home provides private accommodation for families to spend time together away from hospital setting and to make new and important memories. With views over the rolling countryside and the sea, the home is peaceful and comfortable for families to take a break and a chance to forget childhood cancer even if for a short while.
