The Daily Maid is proud to support local charity and this October our founder will be be trekking from the Dead Sea in Jordan through to Petra, one of the seven wonders of the world. Jan Birss and her daughter Sarah Birss are fortunate to be able to accept this challenge on behalf of Claire House and the children they support on a daily basis.

Jan Birss writes…

“We do this to help those children as much as possible and strive to achieve as much as possible on their behalf. We will be trekking for 3 days and will walk over 45km. Please help by sponsoring us via our Just Giving page

All the team here at The Daily Maid wish them god-speed and hope that they enjoy, what really is, an opportunity of a lifetime. The Daily Maid team are planning a number of fundraising events for 2011 and will keep you posted as we come up with more crazy ideas.

About Claire House:
Located in Bebbington on the Wirral, Claire House is a bright, vibrant place of hope. In addition to caring for our children and young adults, we also focus on the needs of the whole family, providing bereavement and other support for as long as it is needed. With no guaranteed government funding we need to raise in excess of £2.5 million each year to maintain our present levels of service.

Our specialist nursing team also work in the community through our ‘Hospice to Home’ programme which offers paediatric palliative care in the family home. With a hospice to home service also operating from our Liverpool office we are now reaching more families than in previous years and hope to see this grow in other areas too.
