Festive Family Weekend at Arrowe Park Hospital
A special weekend of festive fun will be held at Arrowe Park Hospital on Saturday, 30th November and Sunday, 1st December.
Yuletide stalls will magically appear around the main entrance area of the hospital selling a range of goods including traditional sweets, candles and festive gifts.
There will also be a “make your own cuddly bear” stand.
Father Christmas has already confirmed that he will be visiting the hospital on his sleigh on both days, courtesy of the Rotary Club of Birkenhead. Children will have the chance to meet Santa himself in his grotto and receive a small gift.
Organised by Wirral University Teaching Hospital and WUTH Charity, this is the first time a festive weekend has been staged at the hospital.
Patients, visitors and staff will be able to join in the festive spirit as there will be carol singing, bell ringing and other joyful activities taking place throughout the special weekend.Victoria Burrows is Head of Fundraising at WUTH Charity. She said: “Having a bit of early Christmas joy on our doorstep will give some yuletide cheer to patients, visitors and staff.
“This festive family weekend is also about raising important funds for the WUTH Charity Tiny Stars appeal. Our aim is to raise £1.5 million over the next few years to refurbish the Neonatal Unit at Wirral Women and Children’s Hospital, which is based on the Arrowe Park site.
“Whether you’re visiting the hospital for an appointment, to see a loved one or if you live nearby, please do come along and show your support to Wirral’s local family hospital.”
