Tony Langan, Area Fundraiser at Claire House, which provides respite, end-of-life and bereavement care for children and young adults with complex medical needs said: “Claire House is a wonderful place where children can come with their families and enjoy life to the full. None of us know what the future holds for us, but we aim to make every day as special as possible for our children. Claire House has a massive fundraising target each year, to provide vital services for our families and it is only with the support of local companies that we are able to be here for these families. “On behalf of all the children who visit Claire House, I would like to say a massive thank you to Professional Liverpool and an even bigger thanks to English Cities Fund for nominating Claire House. The money raised will help us make a real difference.” Cannes Do allows those unable to attend MIPIM, the four-day international property convention held earlier in the month in Cannes, France, to keep abreast of developments and opportunities raised at the convention. Each year a nominated charity is supported via the funds raised from a prize draw. This year saw highly sought after One Direction concert tickets up for grabs. Stuart Keppie, Chairman of the Property Group of Professional Liverpool, said: “This year’s event was the biggest Cannes Do we’ve ever had and I’m absolutely delighted with the money raised for such a worthy cause as Claire House, which was well above any figure previously achieved.” Phil Mayall, Development Manager at English Cities Fund said: “We were delighted that our venue at No 4 St Paul’s Square played host to the event, which gave an additional platform for MIPIM to do business in the city. “The record-breaking fundraising total for Claire House reflected the all round success of the entire event perfectly. Claire House is a truly inspirational place and it is fantastic that everyone at Cannes Do 2013 played a part in achieving the figure.” For more information on the exceptional work carried out by Claire House please visit www.claire-house.org.uk Pictued above: L-R Andrew Lovelady Phil Mayall Stuart Keppie and Claire Bear Submit News Contact us with your community, business or sport news.
