Children First Derby are both delighted and honoured to be one of the chosen local charities for 30 Days Of Giving. Join us for a relaxed lunch with friends. Children First Derby was established in 1974 with the founding aim to relieve the distress and suffering experienced by families and children in Derby. In particular, those who have suffered from, or are likely to suffer from, violence or maltreatment in their homes. There is increasing demand for our services, and we are both delighted and honoured to be one of the chosen local charities for 30 Days Of Giving. Booking for this event has now closed.
