Clare Bassett, 27 from St Albans, will be lacing her boots as she takes on the famous Three Peaks challenge later this month to raise money for The Sick Children’s Trust which provides ‘Home from Home’ accommodation for the families of sick children. Clare, who has visited Acorn House and knows first-hand the difference it makes, says:

“Acorn House truly is a ‘Home from Home’ - a lovely place to stay that gives families some real peace. Children do get better when their families are right there by their bedside as it boosts their spirits, and lets them know they are not alone. It makes things a lot easier and a lot more manageable to be with them every step of the way.”

“We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us already. Especially, St Albans Car and Van Hire who are kindly supplying us with a mini bus for the weekend. We really appreciate everyone’s help.”

Clare and her team will be scaling the Three Peaks on 25th March. Acorn House Manager, Sandra Peckham says:

“It’s very important for a child to feel that they are not alone when they’re going through something so awful, that’s why our ‘Homes from Home’ are incredibly valued by families. We know Clare and everyone taking on the challenge will do a great job of climbing the three mountains and we can’t wait to hear all about it. Good luck!”
