Today, on the 31st of July, we are remembering Claire Cain on her 40th birthday. Claire was the inspiration behind Claire House, and this year her family and friends have raised over £40,000 in her memory.

Claire’s 40 for 40 appeal was set up to fund a year-long Music and Care package, which will enable local children and families to enjoy music; both in the hospice and out in the community.

Claire’s mum and dad, Chris and Bobby said: “Claire loved singing and  playing the piano and keyboard. Music is therapeutic and relaxing and the music package is a fitting tribute to Claire on her 40th birthday.”

All of Claire’s family and friends would like to say thank you to everyone who has supported the campaign and helped to raise this incredible amount of money.
