From sponsored runs and cake bakes, to a grand Christmas prize draw; the team have organised a wide range of events and challenges to try and generate as much cash as possible in support of the charity. The senior directors at RFS also pledged to match the fundraising targets achieved with company donations to reward the team’s exemplary efforts.
Thanks to the valued support of friends, family, clients, suppliers, sub contractors and local businesses, the Raised Floor Solutions team were delighted to be able to donate over £15,000 to Derian House.
Alongside the presentation, some members of the RFS team were also able to visit Derian House to see first hand the incredible work the charity does to enrich the lives of the children and young adults in their care. It was the first opportunity for a visit due to Covid restrictions.
About Derian House Children’s Hospice
Derian House Children’s Hospice is an incredible charity that offers respite breaks and end of life care to over 400 children and young adults with life shortening or life limiting conditions from across South Cumbria, Lancashire and North Manchester. The dedicated team are on hand 24 hours a day, seven days a week and provide an environment that is dedicated to creating fun and happy memories whilst providing the highest standards of care and respect.
Derian House’s aim is to ensure that every child and young adult that comes into their care is able to makes the most of the time they have. They also ensure that families, including Grandparents, are provided with on going support and are often introduced to other families sharing similar experiences.
The cost of this high quality essential care is over £5 million each year. The Covid pandemic prevented many traditional fundraising events from going ahead and now, with many businesses facing price hikes and families managing the increased cost of living, the charity needs help more than ever.
