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 £56m for a range of life-saving medical equipment and facilities that are making a real difference to families every day.
Our charity recently launched its new £2.5million Surgical Neonatal Appeal to help develop a state-of-the-art unit for newborn babies and their families at Alder Hey. The new Surgical NICU is a joint project between Alder Hey and Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust. It will offer an additional 22 neonatal cots for the region, including 18 individual family rooms where parents can remain alongside their poorly newborns whilst receiving expert care - a first for a surgical neonatal unit in the UK.
We know our amazing Santas will raise a huge amount for our brand new Surgical Neonatal Appeal to help the region’s babies and their families, and we can’t wait to see you all at the start line, Ho Ho Ho!
All runners who choose to support Alder Hey Children’s Charity will receive a fully branded unique running box which includes a technical t-shirt/vest.

The Children’s Air Ambulance is a national service, changing the face of paediatric and neonatal care through the high-speed transfer of critically ill babies and children and flying them from one hospital to another for specialist care.
The clinically designed helicopter provides a flying intensive care unit for babies and children. We work with 10 NHS paediatric retrieval teams across the UK, enabling them to bring their specialist equipment on board to safely transfer their patients from one hospital to another.
If a child is too sick to fly then the Children’s Air Ambulance can fly a specialist team directly to them. All transfers of critically ill babies and children carry an inherent risk – the longer a child is out of the hospital, the greater that risk. With our ability to fly approximately four times faster than a land ambulance, we can minimise travel times and risk.
We receive no government funding and rely entirely on voluntary donations to raise the £3,500 needed for every mission. Your support will help to keep hope alive for these patients and their families.

The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity is the only charity dedicated to supporting patients, research and staff at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre.
It's thanks to our supporters that we can achieve so much for local people with cancer, which may not be possible through NHS funding alone.
The money we raise allows us to fund life-saving research, invest in leading technology, enhance the patient environment and enable innovations in care.
Together we can make a real difference to the lives of those who need us.

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.
The North West Air Ambulance Charity’s helicopters and HEMS response vehicles operate 365 days a year, with highly skilled specialist doctors and HEMS paramedics on board providing enhanced pre-hospital care and hospital transfers to patients across the entire North West region each year – an area covering 5,500 square miles and over 8 million people.
Since it launched in 1999, the charity has been called to over 24,500 missions across the region, with the service called out an average of three times a day.
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 and corporate donations to keep the North West Air Ambulance Charity service operational and helping to save lives, needing to raise over £9.5 million a year to support its lifesaving service.
