CYFOR to enter Major North run to fundraise for Derian House Children’s Hospice
14th January 2016
The CYFOR team have signed up for the Major North military obstacle run to fundraise for Derian House Children’s Hospice
The team based at our Manchester headquarters will be participating in the charity fundraising event for Derian House Children’s Hospice on Sunday 20th March. They’ll be entering The Royal British Legion Major North Series, getting covered in mud and attempting challenging military obstacles along a 10km stretch of ‘muddy bogs, thick woods and river crossings’.
Based in Lancashire, Derian House is renowned throughout the region as being at the forefront of children’s palliative and respite care. The hospice provides support for children with life shortening conditions and their families.
They provide a range of services including short planned breaks in Derian House, Hospice at Home, sibling support group, end of life care and support at home, or in Derian House, and bereavement support after the death of a child.
The hospice currently supports more than 300 families who have a child with a life shortening illness, and a further 200 who are receiving bereavement support. For them Derian House is the means by which they deal with the highs and lows of their child’s illness and its aftermath.
We are trying to raise as much money as possible for this amazing children’s charity. Derian house receives minimal government funding, they have to rely their own efforts and others generosity to raise the funds they need to ensure that their children and their families continue to receive the crucial care and support they so desperately need.
We thank you so much in advance for your support and we will be sure to post pictures in all their glory on our website after the event!
