THE LIVERPOOL VILLAGE HAS TEAMED UP WITH CHILDREN’S CHARITY, CASH FOR KIDS, TO RAISE MONEY FOR LOCAL CHILDREN WITH A RANGE OF ACTIVITIES INCLUDING A 200FT ADRENALINE-FUELLED CHALLENGE.
From Thursday August 11, the waterfront family festival will be raising funds for the well-known Merseyside charity with a boutique charity shop, fun day outs for disadvantaged children and the Sky Swing challenge.
Know someone afraid of heights? Help make a difference in the local community by challenging them to a ride on Europe’s tallest travelling attraction, the Sky Swing, currently at The Liverpool Village. Start a bidding war and nominate a friend who will have to double the bid or face their fears here. The 200ft observation ride is not for the faint hearted but those brave enough to take the challenge will enjoy unique and breathtaking views over the city as they breeze around the Pier Head – the experience and feel-good factor will more than reward them for stepping up.
Popular local online TV channel House of Scouse, will be managing a boutique charity shop with lots of money can’t buy items, alongside The Pier Garden’s House of Scouse open mic night, from 4pm-10pm every Thursday with celebrity items such as boxer Joe Calzaghe’s signed gloves up for grabs. All of the proceeds from this and all of the activities will be split between Cash for Kids and Wirral-based Claire House Children’s Hospice.
To directly help local families, Cash for Kids have been invited to bring four groups of 50 kids and their carers to enjoy a fun day out at the Pier Head, with the village team providing a morning of free rides and a tour of the city on The Liverpool Village tour bus.
Martin O’Shea, managing director of The Liverpool Village, said: “Helping local charities like Cash for Kids and Claire House is the perfect way to give something back to the Liverpool community that we are so proud to be a part of. They do an incredible job to help children who need it most and we want to help as much as possible.”
Carole Clare, Cash for Kids, commented: “The Liverpool Village is a dream destination for our kids as they will be able to kick back and enjoy a fun day out in a friendly and welcoming environment. We have high hopes for our new partnership and hope that it is something that we can develop further in the years to come.”
The Liverpool Village is pulling out all of the stops to help raise funds in this new partnership and have further agreed to donate 50% of every kid’s meal purchased at The Pier Garden to help Cash for Kids’ mission to help local children and families in much need of care and support.
