The Mayor's Charity Appeal is a registered charity which is set up to help support the Mayor’s chosen charity each year.
The Mayor for 2018/2019 is Councillor Susan Greensmith, who has chosen to raise money for one charity during her mayoral year. The charity is Derian House, which is renowned throughout the North West for providing palliative and respite care for children and young adults.
Based in Lancashire, the hospice tailors support to individual families who have a child with a life shortening condition either at home or in Derian House.
It currently supports more than 500 families overall with end of life and bereavement care across the Lancashire and South Lakes area.
Far from being a place of sorrow, Derian House prides itself as being a place of love, laughter and respect, helping families make happy memories together through activities they can enjoy.
