Following a visit to Brian House Children’s Hospice in 2019, and seeing the amazing work they do, PWS decided to do whatever they could to support the charity. PWS made a commitment to donate £300 each month to Brian House. A year on and PWS have donated £3,600, which ‘pays for a day’ to run Brian House.
Brian House Children’s Hospice
The charity is based in Bispham, Blackpool and provides respite, palliative and end of life care for children and young people with life-limiting conditions. Their amazing facilities are designed to create a home from home atmosphere for the children and their families. It costs £3,598 per day to run Brian House, and they only receive 15% of their running costs from the Government.
Covid-19 has brought unprecedented challenges for Brian House. They have seen their fundraising, become seriously undermined. They have explored new avenues and innovative ‘socially distanced’ approaches in recent months, but without their mass participation challenges, community and corporate events, and the closure for many weeks of their charity shops, they are facing a £1.5 million shortfall over the year.
George Critchley, Senior Partner at PWS said ‘following our first visit to Brian House we knew we wanted to do what we could to support them and the work they do in supporting children, young adults and their families. We are delighted to have ‘paid for a day’. COVID has proven a difficult time for Brian House and other charities that rely on regular support and donations. We look forward to continuing our support to Brian House for the next 12 months ’
Janet Atkins, Corporate Partnership Manager for Brian House said ‘It has been an absolute pleasure working with the team at Pennine Wealth Solutions over the last 12 months. They have been a huge support for Brian House Children’s Hospice and we are thankful that we can count on their generous support for the year ahead!’
