Our Chosen Charity
Claire House is a local children’s hospice with a big heart. The hospice provides respite and end of life care for children and young adults with life limiting or life threatening conditions.
Located on the Wirral, they look after families from across Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales, West Lancashire and the Isle of Man.
City Residential have been supporting Claire House for over ten years, during this time we have raised a considerable amount of money. In 2005 we organised a three year “Culture Cities Triathlon” event, held over a three year period in the respective City of culture leading up to Liverpool’s capital of culture in 2008. Our amazing triathlon team did the following events:
- 2005 Cork – 215 mile bike ride
- 2006 Athens – Marathon
- 2007 Luxemburg – 5 mile swim
Together with the Liverpool business community we raised over £100,000 in the three year event.
We continue to raise money for this worthwhile course by taking part in all kinds of events, we have abseiled down the Liver Building, ran many races including the Liverpool Santa Dash, sponsored ducks, zip wired… the list goes on. Whilst raising money we also have lots of fun and feel a real sense of pride that we are making a difference to the lives of children and their families.
