Fundraise for Brian House Children’s Hospice

There are lots of fun and exciting ways you can help fundraise for Brian House and play your role in the overall success of Elmer’s Big Parade Blackpool. And when it comes to fundraising, the opportunities are endless! You could join us by taking part in one of our events, like Bubble Rush, Night Run or Santa Dash, or organising your own event. From cake sales to gala dinners, every penny you raise makes such a difference to us and the families who need our outstanding expert care.

You could donate to one of our charity shops on the high street, and grab a bargain while you’re there. Or you could set up a regular donation or even remember Brian House in your Will, helping us to plan for the future with confidence, knowing we can continue to provide specialist support to children with life-limiting and life-threatening illness.
