Elliot Wild passed away in 2011, it was then that we decided as a family to support the hospice whenever possible and the idea of the Claire House cup was born.
Claire house cup is in its 8th year and is going from strength to strength.
Last year we saw 156 teams take part in a wonderful weekend of football with over 3000 people attending over the two days which seen us raise a staggering £31,000 for Claire house in memory of our beloved son Elliot who lost his brave battle with Leukaemia in 2011 just aged 9 years old.
The Claire House cup total stands at an unbelievable amount of £146,835 to date which is a great testament to the wonderful teams that take part every year and play football whilst raising money for children less fortunate than themselves.
Once again, we want to pass on our thanks to the team that help us raise money in Elliot’s name for the Claire House Cup. Our family and friends but a special mention to Joe, Denise, Becky and all the team at JM RET for their ongoing support. Ray Redmond from Everton FC Academy who helps facilitate the weekend of football.
Our headline sponsor is the fantastic Bagnall and Morris whose support is invaluable to making our event such a success. Neston Building Supplies are once again sponsoring all the trophies and we thank them all for their truly amazing support.
We look forward to seeing you at the Claire House Cup 2019 and want to thank you for your fantastic support and it means so much to not only to us, but more importantly to the families and the amazing children that use Claire House Children’s Hospice.
We are truly thankful.
Jackie, Ian and Finley Wild.
