Looking back on our Annual Members Meeting and Open Day, and the start of something remarkable!
The day was packed with free activities and demonstrations, with plenty of fun to enjoy including face painting, storytelling, a magician, football workshops, family portraits and free food!
As part of the formal Annual General Meeting Ms Jo Minford and Dr Julie Grice provided the audience with an enlightening presentation on how Alder Hey has been improving the care of children with abdominal pain.
Louise Shepherd, Chief Executive said: “This has been an incredibly exciting year for us, particularly with building starting on our new hospital. Those who got to go on the special tours to the viewing platform on the site could see how Alder Hey in the Park is already starting to take shape.
Once again this year’s event was really popular with families and over 500 people came along. Among the activities and demonstrations were a magician, entertainers, balloon making, storytelling and animation film making, all regular visitors to Alder Hey as part of our arts programme which we simply couldn’t provide without funding from Alder Hey Children’s Charity.
The Land of Remarkable People
The Charity team were also on hand to give families a sneak peak of our remarkable new fundraising campaign to raise £30m. Have you heard about it yet? If not, please take a minute to find out why we really need your help to take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity to make your new Alder Hey the best it can possibly be!
Thanks to our members, families and demonstrators for taking part in another great Annual Members Meeting and Open Day – we’ll see you next year!
