On Friday, we were privileged to sponsor and attend the Chester Ball at the Pavilion Suite, Chester Racecourse: a glittering event to celebrate the work of Claire House and its supporters, and raise money for it to carry on it’s work
This was an evening to celebrate Claire House’s ability to provide palliative and end-of-life care to children and their families when they need it most and of course, to raise more money to fund the charity’s inspirational work.
After a catch-up with fellow attendees and our friends at Claire House, the evening began with the parents of two children helped by the hospice telling their story first-hand, bringing home the work that the dedicated staff and supporters do and the difference the charity makes to so many lives.
The place settings provided plenty of info on Claire House’s vital work
The rest of the evening included a delicious three-course meal, live music, a raffle and an auction. We donated eight tickets to Click’s Manchester United Executive Box; a day of golf with Paul Waring, a top 200 World Golfer, and Lee Martin, an ex-Manchester United player; a signed Manchester United shirt; and a weekend break at Peckforton Castle.
The great news is that the money we raised on Friday has taken Click Consult’s Claire House fund well over £30,000!
Our CEO & Founder, Matt Bullas, said: “Without events like this, and without the support of those who sponsor the charity, Claire House would be unable to provide such fantastic support. Being able to support the dedicated staff at Claire House who provide palliative and end-of-life care to children and young adults with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions is a real privilege.”
