Currys fundraisers make more than £13,400 for Claire House

Staff at Currys in Bromborough have made more than £13,400 for Claire House Children’s Hospice.

During the past eight years, the Currys team has taken part in a range of events to raise money and awareness for their local children’s hospice.

So far, they have donated £13,483 thanks to their amazing fundraising efforts, which have included cake bakes, raffles, face painting and Star Wars days with the 99th Garrison.

Manager Lee Grant said, “We’re blown away by the funds raised by the amazing colleagues and customers and would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has taken part in our events or donated.

“We have completed sponsored cycle rides, cake bakes, raffles, face painting, Star Wars days with the brilliant 99th Garrison, and have done everything in between, to help raise funds and awareness for this amazing charity.

“Most colleagues in our store know someone who is connected to Claire House in some way. So, it has a very special place in our hearts, and we just wanted to do our bit for them and support the local community. 

“It really means a lot and we know it makes a big difference.”

Claire House helps seriously and terminally ill children make the most of the time they have, however long or short that may be. By providing specialist nursing and end-of-life care, as well as emotional support Claire House helps families through some of the toughest times of their lives.  

Lewis Croft, Partnerships Manager at Claire House, said, “We are hugely grateful to the staff at Currys Bromborough for supporting Claire House Children’s Hospice – they are all superstars.

“The money will make a positive difference to the lives of the children, young people, and families we support. “And, by helping us to raise awareness, we can reach out to even more families who need us across Merseyside, Cheshire and North Wales.”
