One of the great things about being involved in the blogging community is the ability to spread awareness and share my support for charities – both locally and nationally.
Alder Hey Children’s Charity, based in Liverpool, may not be everyone’s immediate post of call when your child is poorly, however, as one of the UK’s leading children’s hospitals, the time has come to lend a hand.
I didn’t quite release the scale of Alder Hey, but the hospital is leading the way with the unique Institute in the Park – a world-leading centre for research, innovation and education.
The projects that take place at Alder Hey will benefit children from across the UK and beyond. By developing safer medicines that are easier to taste good and easier to take, Alder Hey is the home of children’s research for the whole country.
And this is where you come in….in order to keep up with the latest research and technologies, the charity requires your support to help deliver life-changing and saving research. There’s lots of ways you can offer your support, so why not test your organising skills and set to work holding your own fundraising event to raise money for Alder Hey?
“Bake a cake, ride your bike,
Do a car boot sale, go on a hike…”
Alder Hey Children’s Charity is raising vital funds to build the second phase of the Institute in the Park.
This appeal will allow the hospital to extend the current Institute building and develop even better treatments for children and young people. The second phase of the Centre will allow the hospital to double the space available to undertake world class research and innovation.
Building on the success of the completed phase of the building this second phase of construction will create a facility like no other, solely dedicated to children’s health research, innovation and education.
Within this building, Alder Hey’s researchers and clinicians will continue to work with partners in academia, technology and pharmaceuticals to develop safer, better medicines and therapies for children to use in the NHS and throughout the world.
