Digging deep for Derian House Children’s Hospice
5:07pm Thursday 16th August 2012 in Chorley
PEOPLE from East Lancashire are being asked to help raise money to build a garden at a children’s hospice in the county by holding a fundraising event next month.
The charity Greenfingers is developing the grounds at Derian House Children’s Hospice in Chorley and is raising money with a fundraising week from September 17 until 23.
Deborah Skillicorn, director of marketing and fundraising at Greenfingers, which creates gardens at children’s hospices around the UK, said: “We need to raise between £35,000 and £40,000 to create the garden, which is why we are asking people to help us support their community hospice by taking part in Greenfingers Week.”

Derian House Children’s Hospice offers specialist palliative respite care and care at the end of life for children who may not live to reach adulthood.
The hospice helps children from around the whole of Lancashire.
