Saturday 11 July 2.30 – 4pm
Trustees Sandra, Jim and Emma Hulme are hosting a virtual fundraising event to raise much needed funds for Greenbank, a South Liverpool charity whose vision is to transform the lives of people in the Liverpool City Region, through challenging perceptions and inspiring self-belief.
Greenbank provides relevant opportunities for disabled people and other disadvantaged groups. The team understands the difficulties and prejudices that people living with a disability face and they work hard to offer a variety of opportunities that otherwise would not be available, in areas such as education, sport and recreation. The services on offer by the charity are provided by Greenbank College and Greenbank Sports Academy.
About the event:
The event will be in the form of a Virtual Teddy Bear’s Picnic and is in honour of the memory of Sandra’s mum, Helen Richards (1920 -2004), affectionately known as Mrs Rich. Mrs Rich was very involved in the fundraising for Greenbank in the early days and volunteered well into her late 70’s. She was born 100 years ago this year so to celebrate her life and legacy and her constant support to Greenbank, they thought they would organise this fundraising event in her memory.
Mrs Rich always wanted to have a teddy bears picnic but unfortunately she never got round to it, so they are doing it now in her memory.
The event will take place on Google Meet, in your own living room, so no need to worry about the good old British weather!
The Virtual Teddy Bears Picnic will include:
- Children’s and adult’s quiz
- Chat to all
- Singing and dancing
- Story time
- Pre-recorded video clips
- Raffle with cash prizes
- A celebration of Mrs Rich’s 100th Birthday singing Happy Birthday – bring your own Birthday cake!
- Video about Greenbank
