There is an amazingly special - and massively important Merseyside organisation that is about to 'get it's sparkle on' for the festive season - as a result of a partnership with British jewellery brand ChloBo.

Claire House Children’s Hospice helps seriously and terminally ill children live life to the full by creating wonderful experiences and bringing back a sense of normality to family life.

By providing specialist nursing and end of life care, as well as emotional support, Claire House helps families through some of the toughest times of their lives.

The Hospice has a team of trained professionals who are as passionate about what they do as they are talented at doing it. Staff include nurses, physiotherapists, play specialists, and counsellors. There are two sites on Merseyside, a full hospice on the Wirral and a second site in West Derby, Liverpool, offering day-care, complementary therapies, clinics, play and music sessions, and counselling.

But Claire House is about far more than just care. It offers places for children to relax and enjoy themselves, whatever their age. At the site on the Wirral, they can have fun in a multi-sensory room, art room, hydrotherapy pool and jacuzzi. There is a separate wing complete with a sound system and Xbox for teenagers and young adults.

Whilst their children are having fun, mums and dads get the chance to enjoy some much-needed time off together or the opportunity to spend time with their other children.

Not all families want to come to the hospice or the Liverpool site, so the team goes out to visit them in hospital or their homes and also put on regular trips for brothers and sisters to ensure they don’t miss out on having fun.

Claire House is also there for parents during the toughest of times. Whether they are spent at home, hospital or in the hospice, the team ensures a child’s final days are memorable and special. From help with the practical issues at a most sensitive time – to providing dedicated round-the-clock support and specialist counselling, Clare House is like your favourite warm blanket

As one family put it: “The best thing about Claire House is knowing that they are always there. From the minute you meet them for as long as you need them.”

And the efforts of the Children's Hospice have not been lost on Andi Lee, MD of ChloBo: "We are delighted to announce our partnership with Claire House as our chosen charity partner. After a decade-long relationship, we wanted to take our relationship to a new level and assist the incredible Charity that is Claire House in reaching a wider audience with their phenomenal mission. We are proud to be releasing the first bracelets within our collaborative collection this year, donating 50% of all profits to our incredible charity of choice." 

The brand has launched a womenswear, menswear, and kid’s bracelet specifically, featuring Labradorite beads and the Claire House logo as the charm. 50% of the profits will be donated to the charity.
