Alder Hey Children’s Charity raises vital funds to help make Alder Hey Children’s Hospital a truly world-class, patient-friendly hospital for the 330,000 patients and families we care for every year.

Since April 2013, our supporters have helped us raise over £45.9m for a range of life-saving medical equipment and facilities that are making a real difference to families every day.

The charity helps to fund a range of activities and projects that are designed to enhance and improve the lives of our amazing young patients.

This includes the funding of specialist medical equipment to ensure our brilliant surgeons and clinical staff have the most up to date and cutting edge technology available and funding hi-tech distraction technology designed and proven to reduce pain and anxiety in our patients.

We also fund a range of programmes and special projects such as our on-site magician, our ward musicians and the play specialists we have on every ward.

Our ground-breaking ward-based chef’s programme ensures we are delivering healthy and nutritionally balanced food to all our patients, each and every day.

 

Your support has recently enabled us to complete our £6m appeal to build a new research and education facility, The Speakman Building and we remain committed to supporting cutting edge research at Alder Hey.

 

All enquiries to be sent to me please.

Thanks, Adam Dixon Community Fundraiser

The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity is in the most exciting phase of its history.

 

With investment in our existing centres and the future of cancer care across Merseyside and Cheshire, we are the only charity dedicated to the incredible work of The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre.

 

Our charity funds the latest treatments, vital research, technology and the best possible environment for around 30,000 patients each year at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre.

 

As one of the largest cancer hospitals in the UK, we operate from 18 sites, including our Centres in Wirral & Aintree, our blood cancer Unit at the Royal, and our network of clinics across the region. We are excited to add our brand new cancer hospital in Liverpool City Centre to this network in May 2020.

 

This new site will help to save an additional 700 lives per year.

 

Join The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity's team of runners with BTR and we will send out to you a fundraising pack and technical running shirt to proudly wear around Merseyside and Cheshire.

 

I am actually recruiting now for a dedicated Challenge Events staff member who will look after all BTR events and have a great focus than I am currently able to have.

 

This will help us recruit more participants without question.

 

They will be the future point of contact, but for now please put my name and mark.parkinson1@nhs.net.

 

Good luck for 2020!

 

Thanks,

Claire House Children’s Hospice helps seriously & terminally ill children live life to the full, creating wonderful memories & bringing back a sense of normality to family life.

 

Through specialist nursing & emotional support Claire House helps families smile when life couldn’t get any tougher, and make memories that will last a lifetime.

 

Claire House is about far more than just care.

 

It is a place for children to relax and enjoy themselves, whatever their age.

 

They can have fun in our multi-sensory room, art room, hydrotherapy pool and jacuzzi. There is a separate wing complete with bar, sound system and Xbox for teenagers and young adults.

 

We support over 300 families across Merseyside, Cheshire and North Wales, but more children are coming to Claire House than ever before – an 84% increase in six years – and we can no longer cope with demand.

 

With every day that passes, another family struggles on without the help they so desperately need.

 

We want to be there whenever and wherever families need help - your support can help us to increase the care we offer families in their homes and help more children at our hospice. If you're interested in fundraising for Claire House, please get in touch with the Events Team.

Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation, the only UK charity dedicated to people affected by all types of lung cancer, marks its 30th anniversary in 2020.

 

Our work is based around four key areas:

 

1.Research – funding projects to improve early detection and patient experiences

 

2.Support – ensuring people receive the best practical and emotional help

 

3.Prevention – working in schools and workplaces to help young people make informed lifestyle choices

 

4.Campaigning and influencing – so patients have fair access to the best treatments and care.

 

As early diagnosis is key to improving survival, we funded targeted Lung Health Check schemes.

 

These helped convince the Department of Health to roll out 14 similar schemes in ten locations in England.

We want similar schemes introduced right across the UK.

 

Lung cancer kills over 35,000 people in this country every year. That’s far more than any other cancer, yet for decades it received less research funding.

 

We campaigned to redress this. Now, lung cancer research funding is second only to breast cancer. We also offer support and advice via our nurse-led helpline, patient collateral and information days.

 

We can only do all this thanks to your generosity.

We make your kindness count.

 

Thank you.

We are an independent charity dedicated to putting our region’s cancer needs first, funding pioneering research to tackle the cause, improve the care and find the cure for cancer. We fight the types of cancer that affect people living across North West England and North Wales the most.

 

We are North West Cancer Research.

Across the UK, 1 in 2 people will be affected by cancer at some point in their lives and research suggests that that the number of people facing the disease could rise to 4 million in the next ten years.

Living in the North West, we are 25% more likely to be diagnosed with cancer than elsewhere in the UK.

As the only independent charity dedicated to tackling cancer across the North West and North Wales, our goal is simple: to put our region’s cancer needs first.

From leading life-saving research projects to bringing better and kinder treatments to those who need it most, the people living in our region are at the heart of everything we do.

But, none of this would be possible without the dedication of our supporters, who work hand-in-hand with us to achieve a cancer-free future – together, we can make our vision a reality.

The North West Air Ambulance Charity’s helicopters fly 365 days a year, with the doctors and paramedics on board providing rapid treatment and hospital transfers to patients across the entire North West region each year – an area covering 5,500 square miles and 8 million people. Since it launched in 1999, the charity has flown over 17,000 missions across the region, with the ambulance called out an average of five times a day, rising to ten in summer. 

 

Just as many critically injured patients would not survive without the service that the charity provides, the North West Air Ambulance would not be here without the support of its community of fundraisers and partners. The charity is completely reliant on public donations to keep the North West’s Air Ambulance Charity helicopters operational. By choosing to support North West Air Ambulance you are helping to save lives. We need to raise over £9.5 million a year to support this lifesaving service – every £1 you raise in sponsorship is critical to us….Thank You!

THE REAL VALUE OF 'VIRTUAL' RUNNING

 

In recent years there has been a growing phenomenon of 'virtual' running and I have to confess I was not a big fan initially. I didn't get why anyone would...
