Actress, Claire Sweeney, has been a patron of Children’s Liver Disease Foundation (CLDF) since 2015.
Claire first became a familiar face on our screens when she played Lindsey Corkhill in Channel 4’s Brookside. She’s since had a successful career in musical theatre and is now better known to millions as Coronation Street’s Cassie Plummer.
“As the mum of a son who is fit and well I can only imagine what it is like to cope with a child who has a rare disease, particularly when you know there is no cure,” said Claire.
“CLDF does amazing work, not only providing those families who need it with information and emotional support, but also funding research into causes and possible treatments for childhood liver disease,” she continued. “It’s a fantastic cause and I’m delighted to support them.”
