Home-Start Wirral Christmas Fair

Posted on October 12, 2014 - Recent Event, Uncategorized

Home Start Wirral are making a list and checking it twice in preparation for the launch of their Snowflake Appeal Christmas Fair at 4748 Hamilton Square on Friday 14th and Saturday 15th of November. The charity, that trains volunteers to support local families in crisis are hoping for a blizzard of support.

“It’s a sad fact that this Christmas there are children on Wirral dealing with the consequences of living in poor housing, with financial difficulties, with a seriously ill parent or other circumstances that   can affect their early development. Home Start Wirral Volunteers recognise that each child is unique and delicate like a snow flake and they are trained to give practical and emotional support that can help to improve outcomes for these families.” Says Bev Morgan CEO

Money raised at this event will ensure that Home Start Wirral can continue its valuable work with vulnerable children.

“We have something for everyone at the fair , stalls with locally made gifts and jewellery, a workshop where you can learn to play the ukulele in twenty minutes and of course Santa will be in residence at the Grotto” says fundraiser Sara Forfar

“It’s free entry to the fair at   a great Wirral  venue with a cafe serving festive food and drinks so we are hoping as many people will come and soak up the festive atmosphere as possible. Liscard Primary School Choir and  The Wirral Community Choir will be performing at 10am on the Saturday so come for breakfast and meet Santa in relaxed environment.” She continued

The Fair is being held at 4748 Hamilton Square from 1pm on Friday 14th November and from 10am on Saturday 15th November For more details about the event please call 0151 647 8369 or email saraforfar@homestartwirral.co.uk
