NHS cricket match raises over £1000 for local Children's Hospice

A charity cricket match organised by staff and patients from local NHS trust CWP has raised an amazing £1,100 for Wirral based Children's Hospice Claire House.  The match, watched by an audience of over 100 over the bank holiday weekend, took place at Victoria Park in Tranmere, and saw a side from Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP) take on local team Victoria Park Cricket Club. CWP's team was made up of both staff and service users from Springview mental health inpatient unit on Clatterbridge health Park.

Organiser Nigel Hughes, CWP clinical support worker at Springview, said:- "Claire House is a charity close to many people's hearts in the area, so I'm delighted that we have been able to raise so much. Everyone had a good time on the day and we're really proud of what we have achieved together. A big thank you to everyone who donated such generous items for our raffle."

The event was given a big boost by a number of items donated by high profile organisations such as Everton FC, Tranmere FC and Lancashire County Cricket Club, with raffle prizes including signed shirts, free match day tickets and a signed Coronation Street script.

Claire House fundraiser Jess Campbell said:- "We'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone at CWP Springview for their dedication raising vital funds to support the families of seriously and terminally ill children at Claire House Children's Hospice. The event was brilliant, and it was great to meet such friendly and generous people who have given their support to make a real difference to their community."

Suzanne Edwards, CWP Wirral Service Director, said:- "This was a fantastic occasion not just for the amazing amount raised for Claire House, but also for all of our service users that got involved with the event. We know just how much it means to be active in the community, and this event gave them an experience that will really benefit their recovery."

CWP provides NHS mental health and learning disability services to the Wirral population and wider region. 

Claire House Children's Hospice, based in Wirral, offers care, support and choice to families whose children are terminally ill. For more information about CWP.NHS.UK

Letters to the editor:- "SPOILT or TACTIC?"

"As the European Referendum fast approaches, I can garner little enthusiasm to vote either way. The IN campaign offers little more than patronising scare tactics whilst the OUT campaign disappointingly fails to promise a return to pound, inch and gallon Imperial measures or pound, shilling and penny £SD currency. I feel that my ballot paper may well end up being spoiled." John Eoin Douglas, Edinburgh.
