Christmas comes early for Zoe’s Place

With Christmas only a few weeks away, the committee of Southport Masonic Children’s Party thought it would be the opportune time to donate to an organisation which would benefit children in need of help.

To that end, the committee chairman Richard Alty, contacted Zoe’s Place in Liverpool, which is a children’s hospice that cares for babies and children up to the age of six.

After a number of discussions with Carol Kirkham, a fundraiser for the hospice, it was decided to donate a television and a galaxy projector. The television is to be installed in a flat to be used by parent’s who have the need to stay 24 hours with their child and the projector is used to project slow moving star and galaxy images onto either walls or ceilings and acts in a very soothing and comforting manner.

Richard and the treasurer/secretary John Bogie, delivered the items to hospice to the delight of Carol and the staff. They also took a number of glow and LED toys, which were donated by The Friends of Tithebarn and will be used in the hospice’s forthcoming Christmas Fayre as a fundraising feature.

The major source of support for Zoe’s Place comes from donations and fundraising and the Masonic children’s party committee wish them every success in all their future endeavours.
