Wirral, United Kingdom (15 September 2010) – Hoylake’s Jack Rabbit Slims is to host charity event ‘Claire House of Rock’ on Thursday, September 23, to help raise money for children’s hospice Claire House. The event has been created by local fundraisers Phil and Sarah Birss in a bid to reach their set target of £4,000.
The event is headlined by local rockers and winners of Radio City 96.7’s ‘Make Your Mark’ competition, The Stines. There will also be other featured live entertainment and prizes to be won through a series of raffles, including a signed Liverpool FC shirt which has been generously donated by the club.
“We’re thankful for Liverpool FC’s donation and hope it’ll go some way to reaching our goal of £4,000. We’d like to thank everybody who has already shown an interest in and contributed toward Claire House of Rock,” says co-organiser Phil Birss.
“The shirt is just one of the surprises we’re hoping to spring on people when they come along to Jack Rabbit Slims. The Stines are involved in a heavy touring programme at the moment and we’re delighted that they’ve taken the time out to help us raise money for Claire House, and we’re looking forward to a roof-raising performance. Interest has so far been feverish and we’ve sold a lot of tickets, so are expecting a large crowd. There are still plenty of tickets available though, and people can book there place at the charity event of the year by calling my sister and fellow fundraiser, Sarah.”
Tickets cost £5. Claire House of Rock starts at 7:30pm and will last throughout the evening. For more information or to purchase tickets please contact Sarah Birss on 0792 654 1952 or 0783 481 9139. Donations can also be made by visiting www.justgiving.com/sarah-birss/.
About Claire House:
Located in Bebington 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.
