 Miss Jennifer of babyballet Southport and Formby, said” I am looking forward to having fun at the picnic and supporting such a good cause, in raising funds for our local children’s hospice Claire House.”

The picnic will be a fantastic local event for children, their grown-ups, family and friends to enjoy together during the summer holidays, whilst raising money for an excellent cause.

Located in Bebington on the Wirral, Claire House is a bright, vibrant place of hope. In addition to caring for our children and young adults, focus on the needs of the whole family, providing bereavement and other support for as long as it is needed. With no guaranteed government funding they need to raise in excess of £2.5 million each year to maintain their present levels of service.

Claire House opened its doors to children in December 1998 providing a service for children aged 0 – 23 years with life threatening or life limiting conditions and their families from Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales and the Isle of Man.
