Our 2017 Children’s Christmas Party is bigger and better than ever!

A very special children’s party was held by the Steve Morgan Foundation at Carden Park Hotel in Cheshire on Sunday 17th December.  Nearly 300 children, many with disabilities or life-changing conditions, travelled from across the region and were treated to a magical, fund-filled afternoon. All have benefited from support provided by the Steve Morgan Foundation. Some have received specialist disability equipment via the Foundation’s Enable programme, while others were invited by funded organisations and charities, including Stick’n’Step, Amy and Friends, Creatasmile and Sundowns Wirral.

Steve Morgan, founder and Chairman of the Steve Morgan Foundation, hosted the party.  Steve said, “This is one of my favourite afternoons of the year. Seeing the children enjoying themselves is fantastic. For some, being able to come to an event like this is a real occasion and we are delighted to have made it possible. All of them face difficulties and disadvantages on a daily basis and our funding makes a real difference to their lives.”

Super heroes and Disney characters from Jumping Jacks provided entertainment and party games throughout the afternoon.  Alex, who attends Creatasmile, staged a special Punch & Judy show. Other activities included a festive disco, an enchanting story corner, face-painting, balloon modelling and a magician. The children also received an early visit from Father Christmas and his elves.

The party was partly sponsored by the Carden Park Hotel and everyone enjoyed a Christmas buffet prepared by Head Chef Graham Tinsley and his talented catering team.

In addition to the families who have benefited from Enable funding, fifteen organisations brought children along to the party: Amy and Friends Siblings Club, BIRD Charity, Central Cheshire Buddy Scheme, Netherley Youth & Community Initiative, Northwich Multi-Sports, Stick’n’Step, Sundowns Wirral, Croxteth Family Matters, Croxteth GEMS, St Helens Young Carers, Passion for Learning, Dads, Lads and Lasses, Woodlands Community Centre, Creatasmile and Millstead School.
