Would you like one of our car window stickers? They’re 21cm x 6cm and clingy rather than sticky so can be removed if you need to. Email us your name and address and how many you would like (up to 3) and we’ll get them in the post to you. While stocks last, UK only.
We’ve an event coming up. Join us for swimming and a picnic at Halewood Leisure Centre on the 20th January. We have the pool to ourselves for this inflatable session. Bring a picnic for afterwards, as you’ll certainly have burned up lots of those Christmas calories. This trip is free to our members but you must book your place. Read more…
On Friday 14th December we went to the Pantomime courtesy of Barclays. It was Cinderella at the Empire theatre. What a fantastic show it was, the families really loved it and the kids thoroughly enjoyed it. The setting was truly magical and we had lots of fun joining in. I was close to tears myself when they brought that beautiful carriage on stage (I want one!).
My nephews Matt and Will were there and they were screaming and shouting and
nearly off their chairs wanting to be heard, the laughter and their faces was a
picture in itself. We had a little girl who kept asking why she couldn’t go on stage, maybe in a few years she will be on stage entertaining us.
Thank you Lee and all at Barclays.
On Sunday 9th December we had our annual Christmas Party at Alder Hey’s 01 clinic. This year we had a Magician in to entertain the children. Those that
watched him said he was magic, they enjoyed him and even participated in some of the magic. The magician also made balloon shapes for children too. Some of the children played in the soft play area in the clinic.
We had new families come along to join in the fun, some of them joined the Association on the day – so we hope you enjoyed your first Christmas party with us.
After the Magician we had our party food and then we had a visit from Santa. Santa had a busy time and had all the children wanting a present from him, it was just as well he brought a full sack of goodies to make sure each child received a present. We had babies from just a few weeks old to teenagers.
Thank you Dad. You know what you did and you were a big hit! Same again next year????
My friend Joanne, who is a big supporter of CHA, asked her work if we could hold a charity prize bingo there. Joanne works for the local council at Stadt Moers and we were able to use their facilities. Joanne advertised this and we got a great response and also the possibility of holding more there in the future.
Thank you to Joanne for organising and Gordon for allowing us to hold a prize bingo a Stadt Moers. We appreciate your continued support.
