For many years, Carrington and Pincroft have been donating to Derian House Children’s Hospice in Chorley. They provide a range of care for children with life-limiting conditions, offering vital support to over 500 families. With a hydrotherapy pool, sensory garden and wheelchair-inclusive playground, Derian House helps these children to make the very most out of the time they have. This January we have donated a further £7,000 to help them continue the amazing work they do.
Elaine Middleton, Corporate Fundraiser at Derian House said: “On behalf of Derian House I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Carrington for their generous donation. Derian’s doors are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and it takes just under £4m a year to keep us running. Carrington’s donation will have a tremendous impact on the lives of the children, young people and families that we care for and who rely on us.”
The £7,000 donation consists of £1,000 raised by a raffle during the Christmas party of which the company doubles in value to £2,000 and the annual £5,000 company Christmas donation in lieu of Christmas cards and gifts.
Also special thanks goes out to Adrian Kirkpatrick, who donated his raffle prize of a TV to the hospice. Adrian presented Elaine Middleton from Derian House with the cheque and TV earlier this month.
