Lanchester Cricket Club are delighted to announce that there will be three charities that benefit from the running of the 2017 beer festival
Down's Syndrome North East (DSNE) is a charity run entirely by unpaid parents, carers and volunteers for children and people of all ages with Down's syndrome in the North East.
We promote opportunities to enable those with Down’s syndrome to achieve their full potential and raise the profile of people with Down’s syndrome.
All members from across the North East are welcome to join in any of the many activities that are organised such as regular soft play sessions, support groups, theatre trips, sports activities, pantomimes, parties and activity breaks and much more.
We support parents, carers and siblings whenever we can and heavily subsidise activities to include everyone. Lifelong friendships providing mutual support have been formed by doing this.
Willow Burn Hospice
In 1989 Willow Burn Hospice opened its doors to the community of Derwentside with warmth, respect and a real passion for the people we care for. Today, our values remain the same, stronger than ever.
Our staff and volunteers are dedicated to delivering excellent care to people with a variety of life limiting illnesses, and provide a friendly, personal service to all patients. We believe in the dignity of Care and ensure that is evident in all that we do – making Willow Burn a real ‘home away from home’, whilst maintaining first-rate nursing services.
At Willow Burn we care for the whole family, making Quality and Dignity our focus. This allows our visitors and their families can experience the peace and tranquility of our stunning location, friendly teams and variety of services with ease during difficult times.
Henry Dancer Days is a charity which supports children and young people of 18 years and under with Primary Bone Cancer. Grants are given to families whose child is undergoing treatment. Additional support is offered to them should they find themselves in palliative care.
Registered in 2012 the charity was set up in memory of 12 year old Henry Dancer who died as a result of Osteosarcoma. We help families who find themselves in the same situation offering practical support when it's most needed.
