Supporting Brian House Hospice

The only children’s hospice on the Fylde coast has scooped £1,000 from our charity fund.

Brian House Children’s Hospice is the latest good cause to be selected by Persimmon Homes Lancashire for the Community Champions awards. The national match-funding initiative seeks to support groups and charities working to improve the quality of life or environment across the region.

Diane Finch, Sales and Marketing Director at Persimmon Homes Lancashire, said: “It costs around £1.2million each year to keep Brian House open, and most of that comes from fundraising and voluntary donations, so we are proud to play our small part in helping this vital service.”

The hospice provides respite, palliative and end of life care for children and young people with life-limiting conditions, caring for youngsters both during the day and overnight, and supporting their families at every step of what can be an unpredictable journey. Anyone interested in raising funds for the charity can find out more at www.brianhouse.org.uk.

Community Champions invites local groups and charities to bid for cash, with two donations of up to £1,000 being made locally each month. Persimmon has also recently launched a further funding programme – Building Futures – which focuses on support for people aged under 18 in the categories of sport, education and health.
