AN attempt at serving up a world-record pan of scouse took place at the Royal Liverpool Hospital today (1 Feb) . The event, in aid of the Royal’s R Charity appeal, was raising funds to provide state-of-the-art equipment for the new Royal due to open in 2017.
The Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Cllr Tony Concepcion, was in attendance along with the Royal’s Chief Executive Aiden Kehoe to serve up the tasty stew to staff and visitors in the hospital’s canteen.
Roy, the R Charity’s mascot, also made an appearance and the hospital choir sang Beatles’ songs while everyone tucked in.
The 500 portions of steaming scouse were made up of 35kg of steak, 20kg of chopped onions donated by Prescott Farm Produce near Ormskirk, and 20kg of carrots and 50kg of Maris Pipers donated by Church View Farm in Lydiate. Liverpool Community College also donated freshly baked bread loaves.
Aidan Kehoe, chief executive of Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust, said: “This is the launch of our month long Scouse at R House, fundraising campaign. So come along to see how it’s done and get inspired to hold your own event and help us reach our £10m target to offer patients facilities beyond those that NHS funds can provide.”
