Liverpool’s Lord Mayor, Councillor Sharon Sullivan, with the help and support of celebrity hairdresser Herbert Howe, will be throwing open the doors of the Town Hall to host Queenies Christmas party for children in need of some festive cheer.
Councillor Sharon Sullivan said: “This is a fantastic afternoon for some very deserving young people. As in previous years it is incredibly generous of Herbert to fund such a fantastic afternoon – in honour of his late mum Queenie – for these children.
“I can’t wait to see their faces when they see the Town Hall in all its festive glory, there will be some treats in store for them as well as fantastic food and gifts for everyone.”
Hairdresser Herbert Howe said: “Christmas is my favourite time of the year but it’s also a time to think of those less fortunate than others, which is where Queenies Christmas charity comes in and why I put my heart and soul into the Christmas party.
“It means so much to see the joy on the children’s faces every year, I am just happy to be able to give something back to the community.”
On arrival at the Town Hall, the children, many of whom are in care or are experiencing difficult circumstances, can expect to meet Santa before being taken up to the wonderland-themed large ballroom where there will be treats to eat including candy floss and a chocolate fountain.
Clowns, face painting and a disco will also help to keep the children entertained for the rest of the afternoon and early evening.
