One of the UK’s top sporting charities ‘Everton in the Community’ (EitC) has joined forces with Disney On Ice to provide an exclusive VIP experience for more than 20 local children when the show arrives at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool later this month. 

The EitC youngsters have been selected from some of the charity’s programmes, some of whom are faced with various societal challenges, and have been invited along  as very special guests and will also get to meet a famous Disney friend before they take to their seats with their families to watch Disney On Ice at the M&S Bank Arena.

As the charitable arm of Everton Football Club, EitC is committed to building brighter futures and creating stronger communities – the charity delivers more than 60 projects and initiatives each year which tackle issues such as inequality, health disparities, educational attainment, poverty, mental health, and unemployment with a strong commitment to making a tangible difference to local Merseyside families.

The VIP guests will get to experience an ice spectacular where believing is just the beginning – watching Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and stars from FrozenMoanaCocoAladdinBeauty and the BeastThe Little MermaidTangledThe Princess and the Frog, and more, sharing every magical moment of breath-taking ice skating and beloved Disney stories together, creating memories to last a lifetime.

The children were first told about their surprise VIP trip to Disney On Ice at an afternoon tea party, hosted by EitC at Goodison Park on Thursday 7 March, which saw them enjoy Disney On Ice crafts and party food before Everton Women’s first team players, forward Rikke Madsen and defender Kathrine Kuhl arrived to reveal the exciting details!

Commenting on their experience, Eight-year-old Poppy from Liverpool said:

“I had lots of fun at the tea party with my sister and was so excited when the players said that we will be going to see Disney On Ice! I love everything Disney but have never been to a show before and I know I will have the best time ever!”

Denmark international Rikke Madsen said:

“Myself and Kathrine had a lovely afternoon with these inspirational young people from Everton in the Community celebrating all things Disney On Ice and it was great to be able to surprise them with tickets to the upcoming Disney on Ice presents Dream Big show in Liverpool. These children have been through some difficult times recently, so it was very rewarding to be able to put some smiles back on their faces and I know they’ll enjoy an extra special evening with their families in a few weeks thanks to the generosity of Disney On Ice.”
