Based in Bebington, Claire House celebrates its tenth anniversary in
2009. It provides 24-hour care for children, and young people up to
the age of 23 who have life threatening or life limiting illnesses,
and their families. The hospice cares for people from all areas of
Cheshire, elsewhere in Merseyside, North Wales and the Isle of Man.
The hospice is named after Claire Cain. Born in 1979, Claire was
just 8 years old she was diagnosed with a malignant tumour. Claire
endured months of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, she never
complained, despite losing sight in one eye, hair and most of her
teeth. She was and still is an inspiration to all who knew her.
However, Claire felt strongly that no other child should endure what
she did without support and care for the whole family. Claire passed
away ten days before her 10th birthday. Her parents then began the
task of founding the hospice. From this, it is easy to understand
why 2009 is such an important year for the charity.
Mr Meadows added:- “2009 is a milestone for this important
charity. We can only sell 360 tickets, but patrons will get to see
some of the best fashion in Britain, modelled by new talent
especially auditioned from Liverpool’s Search for a Supermodel.”
Tickets are now on sale from £15.50 to £30. Available only from
