Mad Hatter Mickey and Alice visit Claire House

Liverpool Food and Drink Festival has teamed with Glitterarti Parties, a local party and character experience company, to bring fairy tales to life for the children at Claire House Children’s Hospice.

Alice and Mad Hatter Mickey from Glitterati Parties hosted a special Mad Hatter’s tea party at the Wirral-based hospice this week, sharing a cake and cordial with the children, their families and Claire Bear the Claire House mascot.

Claire House is a respite care home located on the Wirral that look after families from across Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales, West Lancashire and the Isle of Man, providing a home-from-home environment for children and young people, helping enrich their lives so they can live them to the full.

As the chosen charity for Liverpool Food and Drink Spring Festival 2015, taking place at Sefton Park over Easter Weekend (5th-6th April), Claire House and Claire Bear will be at the event offering plenty of interactive fun for the children, including Easter card making sessions and face painting.

Mark Pearson, Event Fundraiser at Claire House, said:

“We’re delighted to be the chosen charity for Liverpool Food and Drink Spring Festival. At Claire House we’re all about laughter, positivity, care for children, and making their time with us as special as possible. It was fantastic to have Alice and the Mad Hatter stop by the hospice and we’re looking forward to putting smiles on even more faces at the festival this Easter.”
