We’re counting down to one of the biggest weeks of the year here at Derian House …. National Children’s Hospice Week!
Next week (May 22nd-26th) we’re planning to really ‘Turn Up The Volume’ and shout out about what’s great here at Derian House, from the amazing children and families who come through our doors to the dedicated staff and volunteers who go above and beyond for us and, not forgetting, our big-hearted supporters who always dig deep to support our vital work.
This year we are turning up the volume on children’s palliative care to raise awareness about the number and needs of children with life-limiting conditions and to celebrate all the lifeline services that children and families rely on. We want to amplify families’ voices and change people’s perceptions about some of the myths surrounding children’s palliative care.
You can help us turn up the volume by getting involved in some noisy fundraising to support seriously ill children and their families:
We’d love you to help us celebrate, too, with your own fund-raising event for Derian and share you photos with us on our social media channels. Here are some quick ideas to help us Turn Up The Volume in 2017:
• Amp up your outfit – from neon colours top crazy hair – glam up, go loud and give, in your workplace, club or school!
• Pay to play – have a lunchtime music quiz to find out who’s top of the pops
• Stage a playlist party – get your pals round to play their top five tracks, dance and donate
• Karaoke contest – hold the ultimate sing along and crown the best crooner
If you need any support at all with your fundraising, please get in touch with our friendly fundraising team on 01257 271 271. They can provide you with fundraising packs and branded items which will really help you turn up the volume for Derian House.
