Derian House Children’s Hospice based in Chorley and Willowbrook Hospice in St Helens were the major beneficiaries from Glassbond charitable donations in 2018. Having been in regular contact with both charities in 2018, we are proposing to donate to both charities again in 2019.
Derian, having celebrated 25 years supporting children and their families in 2018, have embarked on a major building refurbishment in 2019 and will require additional funding to achieve their plans to update much of the building infrastructure.
Willowbrook who care for and support families in St Helens and Knowsley are also planning a major refurbishment in 2019. Head of Fundraising Nichola Saunders commented that ‘After 22 years, the remaining inpatient bedrooms require a much-needed facelift, to ensure they are of the highest quality, dementia friendly and provide a safe and secure environment for our patients’.
