HIGH fashion and an evening of entertainment are being brought to Merseyside to raise money for the NSPCC Safe Place Appeal.

The Liverpool club of Soroptimist International are holding the fashion show at the Holiday Inn on Lime Street on 24 May at 7pm and are inviting all of Merseyside to come along.  Tickets cost £25 per head and will include a 3 course meal, entertainment from vocalist Brian Le Vell and a fashion show from John Lewis. The department store has shown its support by also providing local models, raffle prizes, a free make-up stand and a cosmetics prize.

Soroptimist International is the world’s largest classified service organisation of women in management and the professions, working through service projects to advance human rights and the status of women.  Sharon Bird has chosen the NSPCC Safe Place Appeal as her nominated charity during her 18 month presidency of the Liverpool club. She is delighted that three other local Soroptimist clubs - Ormskirk, Crosby and Widnes – are working with Liverpool to ensure it’s a top night for fundraising.

All monies raised will go to the NSPCC’s Safe Place Appeal which has funded the soon-to-be opened centre on Great Homer Street in the heart of the City. The appeal continues to fundraise to provide the centre with 10 years running costs.

Sharon said:- “As a paediatric nurse children have always been an important element of my life so it was a natural thing to select it as our charity of the year. The Safe Place centre will be a fantastic service for vulnerable children and their families in Liverpool. The Liverpool Soroptimists are thrilled to organise such a lavish event to fundraise for the NSPCC Safe Place Appeal.”

Hazel Russell, the NSPCC’s community appeals manager said:- “The NSPCC would like to say a big thank you to all involved in this great event, which will help the NSPCC to protect more children in Liverpool from abuse. Important child protection services which will soon be moved to our new Liverpool centre would not be possible without the backing of donors, supporters and people attending events like this.”

Get on your bike and pedal for the NSPCC

THE NSPCC are calling for people in Southport to organise and take part in bike rides within their local communities, as part of the charity’s annual Big Bike Ride Weekend, taking place between 29 June – 1 July 2007. This year the aim is to raise £300,000 to help make a difference to the lives of some of the most vulnerable children in the UK.

Regardless of age, fitness, ability or the speed of your bike, the emphasis over the weekend is to have fun. The Rides can take place in your local parks with the whole family or if you prefer a more gruelling challenge you can tackle a longer distance. You can even pedal the distance on a stationary bike at the gym. As long as you’re on a bike, you’re on the Big Bike Ride.

Steve Morton, NSPCC Divisional Fundraising Manager in the North West said:- “This is a great way to get fitter, or simply enjoy the great outdoors. Every penny raised makes it possible for us to continue our vital work with some of the most vulnerable children and young people across England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands.”
