Sponsor A Nurse

10/05/2019 - 09/05/2020 12:00 am

Just £150 can sponsor a Derian House nurse for a day – will you help?

 

It takes a special person to be a Derian House nurse. We asked our care team what Derian House means to them.

 

 

Kathryn is part of our Derian at Home team. She says: “Looking after someone at end of life is a huge honour and privilege, something that as a nurse I never take for granted.” Watch Kathryn’s story in the below video.

 

 

Every year, our team provides care for more than 350 families of children and young people aged 0-25 with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions from across the North West. In 2018, this included 2,096 nights of respite care, 798 hours of fun in our hydrotherapy pool, 81 day trips and 432 Derian at Home visits.

At Derian House Children’s Hospice, we receive less than 10% of our funding from statutory sources. We rely on the generosity of our supporters to raise the £4 million it costs each year to fund the care that our care team provides.

That is why we have launched our Sponsor a Nurse campaign.

Just £150 can sponsor a Derian House nurse for a day – will you help?

Perhaps you would like to sponsor a day of care in memory of a loved one, or as a birthday present to a friend. Is your school, company or scout group looking for a fundraising challenge? Or you could set up a regular donation of just £12.50 a month to give ongoing support.

Your generosity really does make a difference – by pledging £150 to Sponsor a Nurse, you are helping our nurses be there for children, young people and their families when they need them most.

 

Option A:

I’d like to make a one off donation of £150 to Sponsor a Nurse for a Day, please purchase this above.

Option B:

I’d like to pledge to raise £150 via JustGiving to Sponsor a Nurse for a Day click here.

Option C:

I’d like to pay £12.50 a month for 12 months to Sponsor a Nurse for a Day. Please contact the Fundraising team on 01257 271271.

If you would like to choose a specific date you would like to Sponsor A Nurse, please let us know in the Additional Information box at the checkout stage.

Tackle the shores of Blackpool!

A tiring yet fun event for all abilities and ages. Run on mainly hard packed sand from the South Pier in Blackpool to just beyond St Anne’s Pier and back again. It’s a great laugh and we guarantee you will finish with a smile on your face.

Trail shoes are recommended, however standard running shoes can also be used. The route has been measured using a Garmin. Due to the terrain, an official measurement cannot be performed, but it is spot on.

Want to re-enact Rocky Balboa & Apollo Creed speeding up the sands? Let us make it happen! We have a limited amount of entries available to our supporters. If you can fundraise a minimum of £100 for Derian House via an online giving platform such as JustGiving we will enter you into the event at no cost to yourself! Interested?

Supercar Showtime

02/06/2019 11:00 am - 3:00 pm Hoghton Tower, Preston

Supercars – start your engines! Vrooooooom!

 

Once again, the amazing team at Supercar Showtime are bringing together supercar enthusiasts from all over the North West in an exclusive event to raise money for the ongoing care and activities of children, young adults and families supported by Derian House, Chorley.

For 2019, we will be set in the beautiful Lancashire countryside at the prestigious Hoghton Tower. The event is open to the public for a small admission fee and for supercar exhibitors attendance is strictly by pre-registration and limited to a maximum attendance. We politely request a minimum £10 charitable donation in advance in return for a supercar parking slot which will be confirmed following registration.

Refreshments will be available during the morning and Derian House families are very welcome.

Everyone is invited to enter our raffle by purchasing tickets on the day and to bid for our generously donated or negotiated auction lots. Many auction lots do not have a reserve price meaning all proceeds go to our charity. Some of the higher value auction lots do have a reserve price to cover basic costs for the sponsor who donated the lot, but all proceeds over and above the reserve price are then also given to the charity. Supercar Showtime organisers take no monetary benefit from the event.

Please visit www.supercarshowtime.co.uk for details or contact us at info@supercarshowtime.co.uk

Walmer Bridge Beer & Bangers

14/06/2019 4:00 pm - 16/06/2019 8:00 pm Walmer Bridge Village Hall

Glasses and forks at the ready!

In 2017 the Rotary Club of South Ribble held their 3rd Beer & Banger festival and what a fantastic time everyone had. Over 1500 people flocked to Walmer Bridge to enjoy 3 days of real ale, scrumptious food and great live music. This fantastic response meant the Festival generated £18,000 for the organisers to distribute to charities – Derian House Children’s Hospice being one of them. In 2018 the event was repeated again to great success, hold on to your glasses as the beers and bangers are set to return in 2019!

Lake District 4 Peaks Challenge

14/06/2019 9:00 am - 16/06/2019 5:00 pm The Lake District

Challenge the peaks of the Lake District!

 

We encourage you to join this great trek – from fantastic leadership and support drivers, through to a glowing sense of accomplishment, this weekend will not disappoint.

Our trek begins at Seathwaite, from where we tackle Scafell and Scafell Pike via the Corridor route. This is the toughest part of the challenge and involves steep ascents and rugged terrain.

The next day our start point is Thirlmere and from where we will ascend Helvellyn. This is a short but steep ascent with some minor scrambling.  On return to Thirlmere we will transfer to Millbeck where we will ascend our final peak, Skiddaw.

Stamina and determination are a must on this fantastic but strenuous challenge; although it involves some tough trekking, the stunning views of the Lake District will be with us all the way and the close proximity of the four peaks means that it’s possible to do all this in one great weekend!

To take on the Lakes 4 Peaks Challenge for Derian House we have two payment/fundraising options,

 

Option A: Minimum sponsorship

 

Registration Fee £95 + Minimum sponsorship of £700

This option means the challenge balance of your event cost is met through raising a minimum sponsorship for a charity of your choice. Most people sign up a year in advance when selecting this option, giving you time to prepare and organise your fundraising. This is not gospel though – some sign up sooner, some later – it really depends on how quickly you think you can fundraise the required amount.

 

Option B: Self-funding

 

Registration Fee £95 + Self Funding £350

This option enables you to fund the entire challenge yourself, which means you do not have to commit to raising a set sponsorship. You can then raise as much for Derian House without any minimum sponsorship.

Penwortham Bypass Running Festival 2019

21/07/2019 9:15 am - 2:00 pm Penwortham, Preston

Take on the Penwortham Bypass Running Festival and help Derian House!

The Hurt Plant Hire Penwortham Bypass Running Festival 2019 is a one off event taking place on a new section of the Penwortham Bypass; part of a major road infrastructure investment by Lancashire County Council in South Ribble, organised by the Rotary Club of Preston Guild.

The runs will take place on a 1km long dual carriageway section of the new Penwortham Bypass. The road is totally flat, has been UKA accurately measured and has full PB potential at both 5k and 10k distances – both races are chip timed. The 5k race is 2 1/2 laps of the dual carriageway and the 10k 5laps. Bespoke medals and t-shirts for all finishers, plus prizes. Entries are limited.

The fun run is a single lap of 2k. Bespoke medal for all finishers, plus prizes. Entries are limited.

The idea for this ONCE in a lifetime run is to celebrate the investment in the new road and provide a memory for all entrants but more importantly our young people who enter the fun run who will have a lifelong memory when they later drive themselves on the road, that they ran on it before it opened. For the 5k & 10k winners their course records will stand for ever.

All proceeds will be passed back to the community and donated to local, national and international charities.

The event takes place from the All Hallows School playing fields on Liverpool Road (A59), Penwortham, Preston.

Start Times :

5k – 10:00am

10k – 11:00am

Fun run – 1.00pm

Online entries close at 23.55hours on Tuesday July 16th.

To enter, visit the official entry page here.
