There are a variety of fundraising events that Liverpool Airport are involved with throughout the year, some of which are listed below.
Some of our larger events include:
Plane Pull December 2017
Before Christmas, teams from Peel, Matalan, Santander, Alder Hey, Gaskells and more pulled a Blue Air Aircraft on the LJLA taxiway to raise money for our #LJLALoves Fundraising partnership with Alder Hey Children’s Charity.
Each team were given one minute to pull the plane as far as they could, the distances were then recorded and the winners received medals, the runners up got certificates and the losers received a sack of sprouts!
Teams were also joined by giant elves that helped the teams warm up before their pull.
Guests were then treated to mince pies, cakes, buns and a warm drink after their pull. We also welcomed the Alder Hey Charity Team who held raffles and showed the new Alder Play Digital App!
Liverpool Santa Dash 2016-2017- £854
Known as the official ‘Curtain Raiser for Christmas’, a number of our colleagues took part in the Liverpool Santa Dash to raise funds for Alder Hey Children’s Charity. This is the second year we have taken part and our team have just finished this year’s event on Sunday 3rd December. This year, our engineering team converted an old hospital bed- complete with a propeller & sound system into an Aeroplane, with Cirrus our Mascot being pushed around in it through the course!
Vintage Tea Parties - £1626
The charity team, in collaboration with the Merseyside Police Airport Team, have held multiple Vintage Tea Parties since the beginning of our partnership. These events were aimed to bring Airport colleagues together, some even changed their meeting locations to the tea parties! In April 2017, we held a classic Vintage Cream Tea Party, in December 2017, we held a Christmas Vintage Tea Party- complete with a meet 'n' greet with Santa, Christmas raffle prizes, festive cakes and pies, and a singing performance from our HR & Community Co-Coordinator, Jenna Watkins! Most recently, we held a Royal Vintage Tea Party in May 2018, with a Royal theme, which included a Prince and a Princess, royal cakes and sandwiches, fantastic raffle prizes donated by our retail partners and more!
Mystery Box Auction Summer 2017- £5500
The Fundraising team held a prize box auction with 40 Mystery Boxes ranging from Gold to Bronze standard, as well as 10 Prize Boxes that were given to the highest bidder. Prizes ranged from Alcohol to Golf experiences days to LFC match tickets. The event was an absolutely amazing success and a pinnacle of our fundraising journey.
