Sponsor a Nurse and say thank you to our extraordinary carers. 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.
Recently we’ve seen, more than ever before, the true value of nurses. At Derian House we are extremely lucky to have such an incredibly dedicated team who provide care to over 450 children, young people and their families from across the North West.
And with 2020 being the NHS Year of the Nurse & Midwife, as well as marking the 200th anniversary of the birth of the worlds most famous nurse, Florence Nightingale there is even more reason to recognise the extraordinary work done by Derians extraordinary nurses every single day of the year.
Derian House nurses and support staff care for children and young people 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
In one year they provide:
1,405 hours of respite care to give families a much-needed break.
460 sessions of bereavement counselling and support for parents, grandparents and siblings for as long as they need it.
582 visits to children and young people in the community
124 nights of care and support in our sunflower rooms (where children lay at rest giving families precious time to say goodbye)
People often think that a children’s hospice is a sad place but at Derian House, our corridors are full of laughter, colour and music. While sad things do happen here, it is not a sad place. We aim to create special memories for our families and to help them get the most out of every day.
With your help we can continue being there for families who need us, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
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.
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.
