On Sunday, 11th December Variety organised a big party at the Broadway Function Suites in Norris Green Liverpool for 150 local children from O.L.L.Y in Merseyside. Children from O.L.L.Y have experienced tragedy in their lives by losing a family member, mother, father or sibling, so this party was extra special.

The children all enjoyed a fantastic disco with Santa and the elves helped out Santa to give out gifts to each child. This was followed by fabulous party food and games.

Graham Carnall, Chairman of the Variety Merseyside Committee said:

“It was such a pleasure to see so many happy faces all screaming with delight on receiving a Christmas party, this is what Variety does best”

Mrs. Jean Taylor, the founder of O.L.L.Y said:

“I cannot thank Variety enough for the amazing work they do with children. We are so lucky to have Variety here in Merseyside supporting so many vulnerable children. This is the best party the children have ever had”
