Liverpool Chamber is happy to promote the work of its many charitable members. Here’s some info about Claire House.

Claire House Children’s Hospice opened its doors in 1999 to look after children with life-threatening, life-shortening conditions from Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales and the Isle of Man.

The hospice is named after Claire Cain who sadly passed away in July 1989 just before her 10th birthday – Claire’s parents then raised the funds to build the hospice. During Claire’s illness, her parents (Chris, a nurse and Bobby) faced the additional challenge of trying to maintain a stable family atmosphere for Claire’s two sisters and her brother. The hospital was supportive but there was little opportunity for the family who lived on the Wirral to be together, they could either stay at home with little or no support, or be at her hospital bedside.

Clatterbridge Cancer Research Trust and The Queen Hotel Chester are pleased to announce “A Night in Rome”, a prestigious and sensational evening ball which will raise thousands of pounds for the Wirral-based cancer research charity. The spectacular evening takes place on October 18.

This event will also launch the opening of the brand new “Kings at Queens” Suites at the hotel, a stunning development of 87 luxurious suites over seven floors.

Paul Feather, owner of the Feather’s Group of hotels has kindly agreed to fund the evening in aid of Clatterbridge Cancer Research Trust.

The evening will comprise drinks on arrival, 4 course dinner with wine included, live entertainment and the chance to win a brand new Renault Mégane.

CCRT relies solely on public donations to continue groundbreaking work into cancer research for the people of Merseyside and Cheshire.  £2 million a year is needed just to keep the research going.  Without research there will be no progress against this devastating disease.

“A Night in Rome” promises to be a truly memorable evening, make sure you don’t miss out!

For ticket information please call Lindsay Tilston Jones, Fundraising Manager at Clatterbridge Cancer Research Trust on 0151 343 4300.

A Day In The Life – Liverpool’s Beatles Day 10 July 2008 July 10, 2008

Don’t forget, Beatlemaniacs, today is officially Beatles Day here in Liverpool.

The day will feature a host of events and activities celebrating The Lads and their music. Not least of all is the donning of comedy Beatles ‘mop-top’ wigs in the aid of charity.

Over 20,000 specially made Beatles-style mop-top are being sold around Merseyside (I think I’ve even seen them in Tesco!).  Following a day of celebrations all over the region, the spectacular climax will come in the shape of ‘Imagine – The Concert’ at the Summer Pops, hosted by Ricky Tomlinson. He will be joined by a host of artists young and old from around the country, all performing Beatles favourites at a packed Liverpool Arena!

The plan for Beatles Day is quite simply for Liverpudlians to go about their daily business as normal on July 10th, the only difference being that they wear Mop Top wigs and share their Beatles stories with the rest of the city!

Wigs will cost £5.00 – all profits go to Alder Hey Imagine Appeal and Liverpool Unites.

By phone +44(151) 243 1076
Cheques by post to be made payable to LCVS (Beatles Day) and posted to: ‘Beatles Day’, P.O. Box 14, Liverpool L69 7AA.

No news on the long overdue Echo & The Bunnymen day though…

Santa Needs A Little Helper! May 27, 2008

We’re not nuts we know its May, but those guys over at L13 10K who organise the Santa Dash are joining forces with the Las Vegas Santa Run team.

On 11th July, they are holding a conference and need a place to hold it. They are looking for a small hotel venue (30 people) and rooms for delegates.

It would be fantastic to hold the first Santa Dash Conference in the City in ’08 as Liverpool are the official record holders for the event.  If you think you can help out, email membership@liverpoolchamber.org.uk
