Chorley-based business Bizzi Growin has donated more than £5,000 of nursery goods to Derian House Children’s Hospice.
The leading suppliers and designers of nursery items have already seen success with products stocked in a range of shops such as Mothercare, Babies R Us and Tesco, and was keen to give back to the local community after its rapid success since its launch in 2012.
Cathy Bolton, head of sales at Bizzi Growin said that helping families and supporting children is at the heart of the business ethos, making Derian House the perfect choice to receive this donation.
She added: “It feels really great to be able to give back to the community in some small way and it was very humbling to see firsthand the great work they do.”
Becky Rowlands, head of product development, said: “Derian House is such an inspiring charity whose work really does make a difference to the families who stay there.
“We can only hope our donation will provide some comfort and relief to them during the most difficult of times.”
The charity is at the forefront of children’s palliative and respite care, supporting more than 300 families in Lancashire whose children suffer from a life-threatening illness.
The charity relies on donations and fund-raising to provide services to families, providing them comfort and care when they most need it.
Sophie Saunders, the community fund-raising manager at Derian House who received the donation from Bizzi Growin, said: “We are overwhelmed with the generosity of Bizzi Growin and their beautiful bumper sets and soft toys will certainly provide some luxury and colour to our children’s beds.
“They will also serve to support some of our families, which we are certain will be welcomed with open arms.
“We are hopeful the items we are unable to use such as the cot bumpers will go on to be up-cycled into cushions and patchwork duvets with help from our handy volunteers.”
