We are delighted to be supporting Queenie’s Christmas as our nominated charity for our Christmas parties at Knowsley Safari Park this year.
Queenies Christmas Charity was set up in 2007 by Herbert Howe, owner of the famous hair salon Herbert of Liverpool, in memory of his mother who adored Christmas. The aim of the charity is to help those less fortunate than ourselves in the Merseyside area and spread a little happines at Christmastime. They organise Christmas parties for under-privileged children, provide Christmas day lunch for over 1000 people who have no friends or family and would otherwise spend Christmas alone, along with support to local hospitals, the elderly and children’s organisations.
With patrons such as Ricky Tomlinson, Claire Sweeney and Jennifer Ellison, this really is a charity close to home, benefiting the local Merseyside community and we are very excited to be involved.
We are also delighted to be given the opportunity to host their Charity fundraising ball this year in our Grande Pavilion at Knowsley Safari Park on Thursday 1st December – a wonderful fundraising opportunity, with a host of celebrities and a glamorous night of champagne, delicious food and amazing entertainment – full details available soon so watch this space!
