Eden House Christmas 2013

This is what chART is all about. Beautiful photos just received from Eden House Christmas party on 1st December. The children and their families had a wonderful time...the smiles say it all! We were delighted to organise and fund the fantastic entertainer; Joel Dickinson, and fabulous face painter; Gemma, from Silly Gilly Party Fun. Huge thanks to everyone who supports chART, helping to bring about special days like this one for children and young adults with life-limiting conditions and their families. It really does mean so much to them. XXX

John Bromley Marathon 2013

John Bromley, our sponsored events coordinator, ran his first full marathon for chART on 20th October 2013 in York. He ran all 26 miles in the cold for the kids. He took longer than he hoped at just under 5 hours and we are all so proud of him. You can still make all his blisters, aches and pains worthwhile by making a donation, by just going to our donate page. Thank you John.


Exit State Claire House Thankyou

Our patrons Exit State were only to happy to perform an acoustic set for the children, young people and staff of Claire House Children's Hospice on Saturday 19th October 2013.  Everyone had a fantastic time and we don't think it will be too long before the boys are back.  Huge thanks to Roy Bright, Phil Ireland, Peat Hicks & Matt Harris and their management Mark Appleton & Lynne Hampson of Rocksector Records.


Paintpot & Melt Thankyou

chART wishes to thank Claire Tierney of Paint Pot & Cheryl Hook & Siobhan Howell of Melt for choosing chART as their charity for the fundraising weekend at Backridge Farm.  We had a fabulous time. It's well worth a visit to this fabulous place.  www.Ilovepaintpot.co.uk & www.themeltco.com Huge thanks to everyone who came to support us, joined in the raffles and met our mascot, Ladybird Elise.


Claire House Christmas Entertainment 2013

chART has booked the Christmas entertainment (Auntie Sally) for Claire House Children's hospice and we have also donated items for the teenagers Christmas party.


Chester Zoo for Claire House

Claire House Children's Hospice asked chART if we could send a family to Chester Zoo along with 2 specialist nurses and of course we agreed.


Eden House Family Day

Thank you so much to Mike from Cheeky Charlie and to Gemma from Silly Gilly Party Fun face painting for helping to make the family day at Eden House such a happy day for all. We are so glad that we could help out by funding the entertainment for the event which took place at the hospice in Carlisle on 21st July.


Callum treat

We were able to provide a special treat for a 5 year-old girl from Claire House and her family to go to see Disney Live at The Liverpool Echo Arena from funds raised by one of our young supporters, Callam, who raised £110 on a sponsored cycle ride. It's wonderful to see how the kindness of one child touches another. Thank you so much Callam!

Do you have or know any children or teens who would like to become involved in fundraising to help the children and young adults we work with in the hospices and hospitals? We promise to let them know exactly how their donations will be used.If you need any further information or ideas on how your family can become involved, please e-mail our Secretary Carol, on .
