‘Celebrate a Liverpool Life’ - R Charity's Christmas Celebrations

The ‘Celebrate a Liverpool Life’ concert is the main spectacle of R Charity’s busy Christmas period and gives people the opportunity to reflect on the year, celebrate the lives of loved ones and welcome the Christmas season into Liverpool.

Hosted by BBC Radio Merseyside’s Roger Phillips, the concert featured Christmas carols and songs performed by pupils from St. Mary’s College and Preparatory School to help put people in the mood for Christmas.

The ‘Celebrate a Liverpool Life’ carol concert kicked off R Charity’s busy Christmas schedule that saw local organisations come together to help raise vital funds for equipment and services in the new Royal.

Events included R Charity’s ‘12 days of Christmas’ with local choirs entertaining patients, staff and other visitors to the Royal Liverpool University Hospital’s main entrance in the run up to Christmas Day; and a ‘Wear your Christmas Jumper to Work Day’ on Friday 16 December, which encouraged people to wear their brightest and best Christmas jumpers, socks or even ties in support of R Charity.

Patients, staff, relatives, visitors and well-wishers also shared their Christmas messages of love and good-will on R Charity’s Christmas Message tree in the Royal main entrance and Christmas markets were held the Royal every Wednesday in the run-up to Christmas.

Kate Mylchreest, head of fundraising for R Charity said: “2016 was a really busy year for R Charity and Christmas gave us the perfect opportunity to thank our supporters and look back on another amazing year.

“Our ‘Celebrate a Liverpool Life’ concert was a great way to remember a loved one, reflect on the year and helped put people in the mood for Christmas. We hope all our supporters and their families enjoyed everything we had to offer."
