Claire House Children's Hospice

Open House

Radio Clatterbridge has proved again that it is at the heart of the community, with a live broadcast from Claire House.

Presenter Steve Lord was on hand as the children’s hospice held one of its regular open days to welcome visitors for a guided tour around the hospice and its facilities.

He broadcast live into Steve Evans’ Saturday Sequence programme, chatting to staff, volunteers and visitors.

Listeners were taken on a virtual tour visiting the light room, a teenager’s bedroom, the Butterflies Suite and even the swimming pool.

Fundraising Director Pat Faragher explained how the hospice isn’t guaranteed government funding so they need to raise more than £2.5m each year.
