St Johns Shopping Centre has raised more than £3000 for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital after holding a family fun day in the centre.
The centre opened its doors for one day only to a land of magical, fun-filled activities, as they tried their best to bring a smile to the faces of young shoppers while raising much-needed cash for the two charities.
As a host of exciting characters paraded through the malls and Liverpool children were able to meet their heroes, who delivered special performances including renditions of sing-a-long tunes from their favourite films. They could also take part in raffles and other money-raising activities at the event which was held in partnership with One Great Day, a charity which works tirelessly to raise money for children’s hospitals all over the UK.
Prizes given away on the day included a signed Everton shirt, a brand new mountain bike, tickets to Radio City Live in The Echo Arena and £50 to spend instore in F. Hinds, with all the money raised from raffle tickets sold going to Alder Hey and Great Ormond Street, who provide care for sick children and their families.
The manager of St John Shopping Centre Robert Bradley says: ‘We were very pleased to see so many people turn up to help us do a bit of fundraising in St Johns. From fun sing-a-longs, to face painting and prize giveaways, a great day was had by all.
‘All of our stores got involved, and were keen to show their support for both charities, while helping make sure that the families who joined us were kept entertained all day.
‘It’s incredibly encouraging to see so many of Liverpool’s families come together for a cause as good as Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital. They do such amazing work, and our One Great Day just showed how much support there is from the people of Liverpool for them.’
"Its incredibly encouraging to see so many of Liverpool's families come together for a cause as good as Alder Hey Childrens Hospital and Great Ormond Street Childrens Hospital. "
