A Chartered Financial Planner celebrated its 15th anniversary with a fundraising birthday party which raised thousands for two local children hospices.

True Bearing Chartered Financial Planners, in Euxton, Chorley, Lancs, raised more than £2,000 for Derian and Brian House with a birthday event at Barton Grange Hotel, Barton, which was attended by over 150 people including True Bearing staff, their partners, clients and guests.

The two hospices have been providing palliative, specialist, respite, and end of life care for children and young adults across the North West for over 20 years.

Elaine Middleton, corporate fundraising manager at Derian House, said: “The 15th birthday fundraising exceeded all expectations, we are delighted to be working with True Bearing and happy to share the event with Brian House.


“On behalf of everyone at Derian House, I’d like to say a huge thank you to True Bearing who have been supporting us since May of this year with a charity boxing match, Walk the Bay and now including us as part of their 15th birthday celebrations.

“We are so grateful for their help.”

Carol Wylde, clinical manager at Brian House, said: “We are incredibly grateful to everyone at True Bearing and the guests at their 15th birthday party who have raised such an impressive amount of money for Brian House.

“As a local children’s hospice, we rely on fundraising to enable us to meet the needs of our area’s most fragile children and to give them the chance to play and have fun as all children should.

“This support will directly benefit those children and their families who rely on our care and facilities.”

George Critchley, chairman of True Bearing in Euxton, said: “Our 15th birthday party was a fabulous evening of celebration.

“We have been providing good financial advice and good service since we launched in 2003.

“We wanted to celebrate our business growth and success with the staff who have all played some part in us achieving our business goals.

“We also felt it fitting to include a fundraising event to help give something back to the community to which has served us during this time.”
