Liverpool’s Queen Square brings Christmas cheer to Alder Hey
Genting customers and staff at Liverpool’s Queen Square Casino will make Christmas a little more exciting for youngsters at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.
The Queen Square casino staff and patrons have long been in awe at the incredible work undertaken by staff Alder Hey, which has been at the heart of the Merseyside community for over 100 years.
And they wanted to do show their appreciation and put a few smiles on the faces of those children who may not be well enough to be at home over the Festive period.
Genting Casino staff and patrons were asked to donate toys and Christmas gifts to the hospital, which is a centre of excellence for Oncology and Muscular Dystrophy, as well as spinal, heart and brain conditions. The response was overwhelming.
Queen Square deputy general manager Mark Mallon said: “As this hospital is a massive part of the community and has helped care for staff members’ kids, we wanted to give something back.
“Staff and customers have been amazing in their response. We can’t thank them enough.
“The toys and gifts will be collected on December 22 and handed out to the children on Christmas Day.
“We are delighted with the amount donated. It will definitely put a smile on lots of faces this Christmas.”
