Gary Barlow helps raise nearly £1m for Alder Hey and the LFC Foundation at Gala Ball

The LFC Foundation and Alder Hey Children’s Hospital hosted a memorable gala ball in the city last week, raising over £950,000 in total.

The event took place at the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral on Thursday evening, with over 500 guests enjoying a night of entertainment and more importantly vital fundraising. 

Funds raised through the event will support Alder Hey in completing their new neonatal unit, as well as developing LFC Foundation’s ‘Move’ programme for children with respiratory and endocrine conditions. 

LFC legends were on hand to welcome guests and share the evening with them, while a live auction hosted by Charles Hanson helped to raise an incredible amount on the night before Gary Barlow took to the stage to finish off a special evening. 

Matt Parish, chief executive LFC Foundation, said:

“It was an amazing event and fantastic to have so many people come together to help raise an incredible amount for the two causes.

“These funds will make a huge difference to both LFC Foundation and Alder Hey Children’s Hospital so thank you from all of us to those who donated on the night and everyone who continues to support our work.” 

The evening was hosted by LFC TV’s Peter McDowell and Rebecca Davis.

LFC Foundation is the official charity of Liverpool Football Club. Building on the Club’s work in the community over the past 20 years.

Working in areas of high need and deprivation across the Liverpool City Region, the foundation’s aim is to deliver sustainable and long-term change for communities and to ensure that work continues to benefit future generations.

Alder Hey Children’s Charity raises vital funds to help make Alder Hey Children’s Hospital a truly world-class, patient-friendly hospital for the 330,000 patients and families that use the hospital every year.

Since 2013, over £72m has been raised for a range of life-saving medical equipment and facilities that are making a real difference to families every day.
