Pennine Events are proud to announce Claire House are once again beneficiary charity for this year’s Liverpool Chester Liverpool Bike Ride!
Laughter, positivity and care, that’s what Claire House is all about.
Located on the Wirral, the ten-bedded hospice provides respite, end-of-life and bereavement care for children and young adults with complex medical needs, up to the age of 23. Claire House is also there to support the whole family, providing support and counselling for as long as is needed.
Claire House currently look after 160 families, with each child coming to Claire House for 17 nights a year. During their stay, each child has at a minimum of one-to-one care. They can spend time in the hydrotherapy pool, enjoy a music therapy session, sing karaoke in The Den or take part in arts and crafts therapy. And the whole family can be there with them, with private bedrooms and a lounge for Mum and Dad to unwind and take a break from their roles as carers.
But Claire House's work extends far beyond the hospice grounds. Their specialist nursing team also work in the community through the Hospice to Home scheme, which offers care and support in the family home.
They look after families from across Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales, West Lancashire and the Isle of Man and provide a home-from-home environment for children and young people, helping enrich their lives so they can live them to the full.
With no guaranteed government funding we need to raise in excess of £2.5 million each year to maintain our present levels of service.

A Message from Claire House
Claire House would greatly appreciate the fundraising support of as many of the L-C-L Bike Ride participants as possible and we will offer fundraising advice and support along the way! We value the effort that people put into fundraising for us, so we are happy to offer advice about setting up your own Just Giving page and you will receive your own bespoke Claire House sponsor forms. Our hospice is here for terminally ill children and young adults and their families in your area, so please help us to ensure that we can offer the highest level of care by choosing to fundraise for Claire House in the 2013 Liverpool to Chester to Liverpool Bike Ride. Thank you.
It would be fantastic if the 2013 event could raise enough money to pay for 5 days care at the hospice.
