The Beatles Story goes green on St Patrick's Day!
On St Patrick's Day The Beatles Story and the Albert Dock turned green for NSPCC. Restaurants, bars and attractions around Albert Dock all played their part in this event.
Our staff at The Beatles Story were dressed in green Sgt. Pepper suits and handed out free Granny Smith apples to visitors. The famous image of a green apple was used on the majority of The Beatles' later albums and singles and was actually a Granny Smith apple. The Beatles Story continued to celebrate the day in the Fab4 Store were a Apple Records display was created.
Kathryn Taylor, NSPCC corporate fundraising manager, said prior to the event: “It’s great that The Albert Dock are going green for us and are committed to raising vital funds to support children and young people across Merseyside. As a volunteer-led charity we rely on the generosity of the public and are especially grateful to all those donning their fundraising caps and helping to bring in the pounds for our charity."
The money raised by the NSPCC Go Green Day will support the charity and make a difference to the children and families across the region who turn to the NSPCC for help and support. The services being offered from the NSPCC centre in Liverpool include those to protect children under one, programmes to support children in care and to help children in high risk families. The centre is also home to ChildLine, the UK’s confidential, 24-hour telephone and online counseling service for children and young people.
