With Eurovision 2023 being held in Liverpool, Claire House was very excited to be asked to be one of the Merseyside charities and community groups featured in the BBC’s Handover and Allocation Draw Show.
The filming took place at Claire House in Liverpool on Monday 16 January, with Noah Cunningham and Codie Ann Gibney, who are supported by the hospice, having star roles.
The BBC sent over a film crew to film the young people and their families alongside some of the hospice staff reading a few lines of a poem written by Frank Cottrell-Boyce. Other organisations will also feature in the poem, which is being filmed around Liverpool.
A spokesperson for Clatterbridge based Claire House said, “We were delighted to be asked to take part in the Eurovision show. Music is really important to many of the children and young people who come to the hospice, so to get to take part in a show that celebrates music and is being held locally was a really special opportunity for us.”
The show will be aired on 31 January at 7pm on BBC Two, hosted by Rylan and AJ Odudu.
