Radio Heroes Help Raise £70k For Zoe’s Place

Dynamic duo - Radio City's Lee Butler and Pete Price on a Tuk Tuk
RADIO CITY’S Cash For Kids raised more than £70,000 for Zoe’s Place in a super way earlier in May. The team dedicated their annual Superhero Day to raising money for the Expansion of bereavement facilities, specifically for building a new bedroom which would enable the family to stay with their child before and after their death. All funds raised went towards updating, modernising and expanding the existing facility by removing existing patio doors and replacing with a conservatory, creating a much larger, brighter space for families to use. There was lots going on throughout Superhero Day within the station and across Liverpool. Leanne and Dave from the Breakfast Show visited a local school in the morning in a helicopter to join in their fundraising activities.

Throughout the day the Radio City 2 team took over Williamson Square to host a Superhero style ‘Fantastic 4 Assault Course’ headed up by the presenters. Teams from across the city took part in the challenge, including a rodeo bull and inflatable obstacle course. Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice provides a wonderful ‘home from home’ environment for babies and infants aged from birth to five-years-old who have life limiting or life threatening conditions. As the only baby specific hospice in the UK, they offer palliative, respite and end of life care completely free of charge and ongoing support to families. Not every child is able to recover from their condition. Hospice care is a specific type of palliative care that helps children and families cope with terminal illness. It focuses on preventing and relieving pain and suffering and easing the fear and anxiety associated with the end of a child’s life. The hospice provides a special bereavement suite, called the Snowdrop Suite which is a temperature controlled special bedroom where a child can stay after their death so they can be cared for and visited by their family before the funeral.
