Christmas Campaign 2018

01/12/2018 - 14/01/2019 9:00 am

Will you put Derian House on your Christmas list?

No family wants to spend Christmas Day in a hospice. But at Derian House, for our children who need us, we are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Christmas Day is no different.

We want you to help us raise funds to give our children the best Christmas ever. For some it may be the last they spend together as a family and we want to make sure they create precious memories to last a lifetime.

How can you help?

The possibilities are endless! Ditch the Christmas cards this year and donate the money to help our children instead! Go mad with the outdoor Christmas decorations and take donations from visitors. Have a Christmas jumper day at work. Bake gingerbread men to sell to your friends.

Join our campaign to show your seasonal support for Derian House. You can help make a real difference to a child or young person with a life-limiting condition this year.

Head on over to our JustGiving campaign page to join in the festive fundraising!

Great Wall of China

11/05/2019 - 19/05/2018 9:00 am China

Trek the Great Wall of China for Derian House!

The Great Wall of China has been voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Stretching for 6,000km, it zig-zags its way across China, snaking across mountains and through valleys.

Our Great Wall of China Trek is a fantastic charity challenge hiking for five days along this magnificent man-made structure. One of the best in the market, our challenge takes us over watch towers and mountains, through historic battlement stations that are well off the tourist trail – there are many sections during this challenge where we’ll feel the Great Wall is for us only, with no-one else in sight. Rest assured, the Great Wall of China provides a fantastic backdrop to some fantastic trekking.

Unlike other Great Wall of China challenges with us you will also be able to ‘lend a hand’ repairing a section of the Wall that is currently being reconstructed. We will each place our brick in this newly restored section, ensuring our own place in the Great Wall of China!  Memories to cherish for a lifetime.

The trekking on this charity challenge is hard, due to a number of steps we trek up and down each day – it can sometimes take an hour just to trek 1km! Another highlight of this challenge is to conquer the 1,000 steps up to the wall at Mutianyu – culminating with the ascent of the ‘Heavenly Ladder’. Uniting as one and with exceptional support from when you sign up through to the challenge itself, this trek will not disappoint.

To take on the Great Wall of China for Derian House we have two payment/fundraising options, £100 off Reg Fee with code CHINA100

Option A: Minimum sponsorship

Registration Fee £299 + Minimum sponsorship of £2700 + Airport Tax and Fuel Surcharge Contribution: £250

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 £299 + Self Funding £1350 + Airport Tax and Fuel Surcharge Contribution: £250

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.
