Story

Following a dubious footballing career at University, in 2016 I did my level 1 FA coaching qualification. I help coach 2 teams at AFC Waverton & am a proud spectator on the sideline of a 3rd team & I am incredibly proud of my 3 footie players (despite the fact 2 are avid City supporters).

I work as an NHS Consultant Paediatrician & in May 2018 I was offered the opportunity of a life time...to be the first medical consultant at Claire House Hospice. Life has certainly got busier since then! Through this role I have met some amazing, inspiring people. I am so privileged to work with the patients & families who use Claire House; many of whom are living through every parents unthinkable worst nightmare. 

But they are only half the story - the dedicated hospice staff including clinical, housekeeping & administration, the fundraisers, the volunteers, the retail staff, the CEO & board have become valued colleagues & friends. I am learning something new every day & feel inspired & hopeful. 

Claire House support over 300 families with dying children across Merseyside, Cheshire and North Wales. But more children are coming to Claire House than ever before – an 84% increase in six years – and we can no longer cope with demand.

With every day that passes, another family struggles on without the help they so desperately need. Claire House provide a lifeline for families going through the toughest of times, allowing them to make memories that will last a lifetime.

Your support can help us to increase the care we offer families in their homes and help more children at our hospice.

We want to be there whenever and wherever families need help.

Please help me, Fin, Seth and AFC Waverton raise as much money as possible for this fantastic cause. Thanks!
