‘Dino Day’ will take place on Sunday, March 3 at LIVE! New Scene Youth Centre in Hoole. There will be a variety of different activities for children to take part in, including a dinosaur hunt where children will look for clues and dinosaur facts to win prizes. Children can also erupt a (fake!) volcano, ‘dig for dinosaurs’, decorate cookies, paint ‘dinosaur eggs’, and much more. Food will be available from ‘Herbivore’ and ‘Carnivore’ stands, as well as a sweet stall. Face painting and a raffle will also be available on the day.

The event is being hosted by Evolving Events, a group of Events Management students at the University. The group consists of: Rebecca Midwinter; Emily Gould; Ffion Williams; Harry Jones and Patsy Cliffe.

All money raised from the events will be donated to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool, which cares for over 270,000 sick children and supports their families. The charity is close to the group's heart, due to the care it provided for Harry when he was younger. This event provides an opportunity to return the support to this fantastic charity.

The team hopes that the event will promote and raise awareness of the work the Hospital does.

Ffion, Marketing Manager, Evolving Events, said: “The whole team is so excited to watch all of our hard work come together. We love the concept of dinosaurs and how it allows children to express their creativity, whilst enjoying a fun and educational day. The money we raise will help Alder Hey to fund various activities for the patients, support research and fund distraction technology designed to reduce pain in patients.”

Adam Dixon, Community Fundraiser, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, said: “We are really looking forward to Dino Day on March 3. It’s a fantastic way to raise money and educating children at the same time is just brilliant. I know it will be a huge success and look forward to meeting all involved.”

The event is kindly being sponsored by EasyFix Emblems, a screen printing business based in North Staffordshire. Kathryn Midwinter, Director, EasyFix Emblems, said: “We loved the group’s idea of a ‘Dino Day’ to raise money for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, and we are more than happy to help them as much as we can with their printing for the event.”

Tickets cost £5 per child aged between two and 12. Adults go free. Two time slots are available: 10.30am until 1pm or 1.30pm until 4pm.
