Fundraiser Emma Graham stated:

“We are hoping to raise £500 from this final event of the year. We are holding a Family Christmas Shopping Evening on Friday 25th November at St Jeromes Parish Club, Greenloons Drive, Formby, 5.30pm-9.30pm. We have got local businesses attending with their Christmas gifts and ideas- a few examples are Shelley’s Flowers, Green Bubbles Soaps, Gilly’s Jams, Bodyshop at Home, plus many many more. There’s a chance to also get your nails done on the night.”

“We have also got local groups attending to entertain during the evening for example Make Noise 2 & Amanda Neale Singing Academy plus others. There will be refreshments available, bar, Facepainting by Fancy Faces Southport and a Raffle. Goody bags to the first 50 adults through the door.”

Emma added:

“Our son Theo was born 10 weeks premature weighing 2lbs 8oz at Ormskirk Neonatal Unit in October 2012 and is about to celebrate his 4th Birthday. We have been fundraising for the Neonatal Unit ever since helping to raise funds for much needed equipment. This year we are helping to raise funds towards monitors and incubators for the bed/cotside.”
