2015 Charity: Derian House
As you know, this a free festival – however every year we fundraise so that we can donate to a charity, and give back to the community. So we’re pleased to announce this year, any excess money raised from this year’s Wigan Live Festival will be given to local charity Derian House.
Situated in the heart of Lancashire, Derian House is renowned throughout the region as being at the forefront of children’s palliative and respite care.
Families who have a child with a life shortening condition can choose from a range of care and support services to meet their individual needs which include; short planned breaks in Derian House, Hospice at Home, sibling support group, end of life care and support at home, or in Derian House, and bereavement support after the death of a child.
We are currently supporting more than 300 families who have a child with a life shortening illness, and a further 200 who are receiving bereavement support. For them Derian House is the means by which they deal with the highs and lows of their child’s illness and its aftermath.
