About this Collection
Please support your local children’s hospice and help us to continue providing FREE care to the children, young people and families that come to Derian House for help and support. We would welcome a donation for the collection of your Christmas Tree. A suggested donation of £10.00 to collect your real tree will help us to provide services such as:
- £5.00 for a cherished memory pack for bereaved family.
- £10 could pay for art supplies for a session of specialised play, enabling our Play Team to help children create treasured pieces for their loved ones.
- £20 can provide a session in our interactive sensory room, helping children relax and stimulating their senses
Our volunteers will be collecting the Christmas trees on the 8th and 9th January 2019 in the following postcodes:
PR7 1 PR7 2 PR7 3 PR7 6 PR7 7 PR6 0 PR6 7
Please register your tree here by 4 January 2019 at 1pm.
Please ensure your tree is outside your house by Tuesday 8th January to ensure a speedy collection.

About the Hospice
At Derian House we help children and young people, whose lives are too short, to make happy memories in an environment of fun, respect and above all, high quality care.
We provide respite and end-of-life care to more than 300 children and young people across the North West. We do this 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We never close to those who need us.
Our ethos is to make sure that every child and young person who comes to Derian is able to make the very most of the time they have.
The hospice has a hydrotherapy pool, sensory room, soft play, large inclusive playground suitable for wheelchair-users, and a sensory garden full of the sights, smells and textures of nature.
We also have regular visits from a music therapist and Shuna, our pet therapy dog. Our staff lead frequent trips to the zoo, seaside, local parks, and other days out following the interests of the children.
At Derian the whole family is offered a framework of support; with support for siblings, a grandparents bereavement group, and counselling sessions for families for as long as they need it.
Despite the nature of our work, Derian House is not a sad place; our corridors are full of joy and laughter as we do everything in our power to make sure our children and their families make precious memories together.
