Demelza has been close to the hearts of everyone at Axis since the very beginning of the foundation. In fact, our involvement with Demelza extends even further back than the birth of the Axis Foundation; we’ve continuously supported them for 15 years.

As the foundation celebrates a decade of donations, Demelza looks back on what our support has helped them to achieve:

“You’ve helped our staff support families through the saddest time that I think most people can imagine, through the death of their child. You’ve also helped us create some of the happiest moments that those children and those families have had, helping them to experience adventures, new challenges… and create memories that live on forever.”
Ryan Campbell CBE Demelza Chief Executive
