Derian House Children’s Hospice
Business Genre:
Long Business Description:
Derian House Children’s Hospice has been providing vital care for life threatened children and young people, and support for their families for over 25 years.
Since the hospice first opened its doors in 1993 there is much that has been achieved in that time, with Derian House taking the lead on a range of care initiatives that have contributed to developing a framework of support that provides families with the very best in children’s hospice care.
We feel extremely privileged to be counted as friends of the many families we have cared for and supported in the past, as well as those to whom we continue to offer ongoing support. And of course, there will be countless others in the future who will need us to be there for them, to provide not only a high standard of specialist care for their child but a reassuring framework of emotional support for them as a family.
Families who have a child with a life-shortening or life-threatening condition can choose from a range of services to meet their individual needs, either at home or in Derian House. The emphasis is on providing them with choices which deliver an approach to care, as individual as they are.
Indeed, only a parent who has had to face such a profoundly emotional journey can comprehend or begin to explain what it means to them and their child to have the care and support that Derian House has to offer…
The cost of continuing to provide this high level of care and support will be in excess of £3.95 million next year, and in the absence of any significant statutory funding, most of that money will come from our own efforts, and the generosity of our friends and supporters in the community.
So, on behalf of Derian House, all the children and young people we care for, and the families we support, thank you for taking the time to read this, and for your ongoing support of Derian House.

Long Business Description:

WELCOME TO PLATFORM TWO C.I.C.

A Community Interest Company

Platform Two CIC is a not for profit organisation which evolved from an idea between friends Alison and Grace who realised that they had a passion for retail and charity.

Our aim to support local charities and community projects throughout the year, this will be via social media, online sales, events, fundraising and working with the local community.

Our concept is to source donations of clothes, books, Cd’s & DVD’s, small electricals, bric-a-brac, then to sort into online selling, selling at events, upcycling or recycling. This will raise much needed vital funds for their causes and we are environmentally aware of the local recycle footprint.

We help the charities recruit and train volunteers in valuable skills and we also work with colleges in the local area.

We collect all donations across the Fylde Coast, please give us a call.

Thank you for your support.
