Derian Patrons & Ambassadors
Our celebrity supporters help us in many ways from spreading the word about the work we do here at Derian House to attending events, giving their time to our children and families and raising money to support the care we provide. We are very grateful for all their hard work and support. Find out more about our Patrons and Ambassadors and the work they do on our behalf by clicking on the photos below.
