Birkenhead-based Equilibrium Northwest CIC’s annual Christmas Magic Event has received an extra boost this year, with local firm The Accountancy Partnership funding tickets for 100 children.
When a member of staff mentioned the local event, the firm reached out offering to pay the cost of 100 tickets for children who might not otherwise be able to attend.
Helping disadvantaged groups and individuals in the community, Equilibrium set out to reduce health and wellbeing inequality in Birkenhead. Their aim is to give disadvantaged people the same opportunities available to their peers, providing workshops, projects, and activities with those goals in mind.
The popular Christmas fair includes a whole host of festive activities for local children, including Santa’s Grotto, build a teddy in the elves’ workshop, story time with Mrs Christmas, cookie decorating, and arts and crafts.
Tickets to the Christmas Magic Event are available to buy at £10 each, with a further 100 free places funded by The Accountancy Partnership. Staff from the firm are also volunteering to attend as elves.
Megan Yapp, General Manager, said, “One of our accountants was talking about this event and the other work that Equilibrium does. Organisations like this are so important for the wellbeing of our communities, so we were delighted that there was something we could do to help.”
Sharon Munroe, Director and Founder of Equilibrium, said, “This will make such a difference to our community, especially to our low-income families. We’re so grateful for this support in helping to make lovely memories for them to treasure.”
The fair takes place on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 December at Livingstone Street Play & Community Centre in Birkenhead. Call 0151 647 6044 to book.
Equilibrium is also planning other Christmas events, including a Christmas lunch with transport for individuals and groups, so that nobody has to be alone who does not wish to be. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07731 478 096, or 0151 647 6044.
