Our Just Giving page is now available as we look to clients, business partners and families to support the team with generosity in meeting the fundraising target.

On June 18th-19th 2016 a team of 9 (plus 3 drivers) are undertaking The Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for Claire House Children’s Hospice. The challenge involves climbing the UK’s three highest mountains within 24hrs, including travel between each mountain. We will climb a total of 3408m in elevation, cover 27 miles on foot and 798 miles by minibus.

We’re doing it to support the incredible work of Claire House Children’s Hospice, who offer care, support and choice to families whose children won’t live to be adults.  We have a modest target of £2500, although this figure barely covers a few hours funding at the hospice. It costs around £6500 a day to run or £2.4M per year.

“Whilst the hospice building is located on Wirral, Claire House aims to offer the very best care wherever and whenever a child and family needs it, whether they choose to come to the hospice or are looked after at home with our Hospice to Home Team.

At Claire House, we focus on not what we do, but why we do it. Our nurses take over for a couple of days so mum and dad can be parents, as opposed to carers 24/7. Our physiotherapists help children who are confined to a wheelchair most of their day, feel the freedom and movement of water in our specially adapted hydrotherapy pool. The play therapists do so much more than just playtime; they help our families create memories that will last a life time. And our Family Support Team are on hand to offer emotional support to families when the very worst happens, for as long as they need it.

If you’d like to know more about the support offered by Claire House and if your family or a child you know could benefit from our care, please contact Claire House Children’s Hospice on 0151 334 4626.”
