Jacob Reddy is Busking For Derian - All 51 English Cities In Only 22 Days!

Fundraising for Derian House Children's Hospice
raised of £5,000 target
In memory of Joseph Reddy
We offer respite & palliative care to children, young people & their families


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Derian House is a fantastic place, which gives support, help and respite to children and young people who have life-limiting or life threatening conditions.  This includes my brother Joseph, who passed away just before his third birthday, but who enjoyed many wonderful times in Derian's loving environment.

Derian House costs approximately £5 million per year to run, but relies on fundraising for 88% of this amount, which has been extremely difficult during Covid.  

So... as someone who goes busking most weekends, I thought it would be quite a challenge spending my summer holidays aiming to busk in every single city in England (all 51 of them!) in just 22 days!  I know it's going to be tough, tiring and a bit terrifying but I'm hoping for lovely weather and as much support as possible as I go from Preston to Plymouth, Salisbury to Sunderland, Wolverhampton to Wakefield via Wells & Worcester, and pay a visit to Winchester, Chichester and... Chester!  Busking For Derian is definitely a challenge worth facing!

Please pop along to any of the cities on the tour - it'd be lovely to see some friendly faces singing along!!!
