We were thrilled to welcome local, regional and national trades people to the hospice on Tuesday 15 August.
From joiners and plumbers, to carpenters and designers, we are incredibly grateful to everyone who's donating their expertise, time and materials to build us a brand-new children's counselling and therapy centre.
We still welcome support from local trades people. Please let us know how you can help.
We have another huge build ahead of us in Derbyshire, which will provide a crucial space for children and their families who are going through some of the toughest times. If you have a trade, a skill, can spare some time to graft or can help us with materials then get in touch. It’ll be a blast.”

What is the DIY SOS Big Build for Children in Need?
They will don their steel toe capped boots, high viz and hard hats to help make a difference. They’ll be joined by an army of volunteers to create the children's centre - from the ground up - in just 10 days.
How will the centre help bereaved children?
The centre will benefit traumatically bereaved children and families across Derbyshire for many years to come.
The team will build bespoke rooms for counselling and complimentary therapy. The centre will also include a multi-functional area.
BBC Children in Need and Treetops Hospice
BBC Children in Need have supported Treetops Hospice since 2010. Their funding has provided counselling to hundreds of bereaved children and families during that time.
