Duerr’s Digs Deep for Joshua Tree Kids

Duerr’s recently joined The Joshua Tree charity to start work on a new adventure playground in Cheshire designed specifically for children living with the life-changing experience of childhood cancer. 

The playground is being made possible thanks to a massive donation of £40,000, which was raised at our annual ball which took place in November last year. 

The £40k we raised will build a brand new all-ability playground at the support centre The Joshua Tree is building in Sandiway, Northwich and is due to open in 2019.

The Joshua Tree charity supports families across the North West and North Wales living with childhood cancer, providing help that is tailored to their needs.

The extensive, all access outdoor play area will provide families visiting its centre with a vital chance to play without risk of infection; a crucial consideration for immunosuppressed children who are advised not to play in public playcentres or playgrounds when undergoing treatment. 

It will also provide families with a space to receive therapy through play, enabling them to build memories together during a challenging time. 

Special features will include a story telling chair, musical play, an outdoor gym, rope climbs, scramble nets and a water wall. All of which are designed to encourage imaginative and social play and to allow children of different abilities to play side by side.

Join us to make a difference… We are hosting another Duerr’s spectacular this November. Join us in raising money for Cashforkids. Call 0161 946 0535 for more information.
