Merseyrail organise a summer fun day every year for staff and their families. This year Down Syndrome Liverpool as Merseyrail’s chosen charity of the year was invited to take part on the day. An invitation was extended to all of our members to come along to Liverpool Cricket Club and enjoy the fun.
There was a good turnout by our membership and the kids had lots of entertainment to choose from – stalls, fairground rides and activities and an It’s a Knockout competition. Not to mention the ice cream vans and burger bars.
We were also invited to take the opportunity to do some fund raising and organised a tombola stall and a raffle which were very successful (despite the stall being almost blown away at one point!) raising over £600.00 on the day.
For those who could stay on Mersreyrail provided a barbecue as well as a bar and disco.
A very big thanks to all of those members who helped on the tombola and raffle.
