Clayton Park Bakery, the Accrington-based food firm, have donated a fantastic selection of products to staff at Derian House Children’s Hospice in Chorley.

The donation was made on behalf of The Alfie Lund Fund, which raises money for Alfie Lund, who is one of only a handful of children in the UK and approximately 120 in the world suffering from MECP2 duplication syndrome, a rare chromosome abnormality with common features including hypotonia (floppiness or low muscle tone), absent or little speech, severe learning difficulty, progressive neurological conditions such as seizures and increased muscle spasticity, recurrent chest infections and pneumonia, plus more.

The fundraising allows for specialist equipment for Alfie to meet his therapy needs and to give him a more comfortable life.

Alfie regularly attends Derian House Children’s Hospice and after Clayton Park Bakery offered to send Alfie, his dad Mark, and The Alfie Lund Fund a variety of their products, they instead asked if it could be donated to staff and nurses at the hospice.

Clayton Park Bakery’s Business Development Manager, Mark Ashworth, visited Derian House in Chorley to deliver the products to excited staff, with the delivery including Clayton Park’s famous pies, as well as a delicious variety of cream cakes.

Mark Ashworth, Business Development Manager at Clayton Park Bakery, said: “It was a great honour to be able to deliver a number of our products to staff and nurses at Derian House Children’s Hospice on behalf of The Alfie Lund Fund.

“The work they do at Derian House is amazing and we hope this has gone a little way to supporting their incredible staff.”
