Last week saw SSP, located at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA), raise £3,700 for UK children’s charity, When you Wish Upon a Star.

SSP has six catering outlets located within LJLA’s terminal building and all have been involved in this year’s drive to raise money for the charity, which aims to grant the wishes of children suffering from life-threatening illnesses.

Hollyoaks actress Rachel Shenton, who played Mitsee Minniver, came to show her support last week as the SSP team took part in a charity abseil down the multi-storey car park, encouraging airport staff to take a leap of faith with them.

In addition to adrenalin filled activities the team held a fancy dress day including a raffle and sold Lavazza coffee, hot drinks and cakes outside the terminal in a campaign supporting the charity.

Manager of When You Wish Upon a Star, Sue Hickling, said: “SSP Air UK employees, having taken the charity to their heart, constantly use their ingenuity to find new ways to raise funds. Abseiling at Liverpool Airport and selling coffee from a mobile cart proved a huge success raising £3,700!

“So far their efforts will enable children to swim with dolphins, visit Cinderella’s Castle for tea with a princess, and travel to Infinity and Beyond with Buzz Lightyear. We couldn’t be more grateful constant for their support.”
SSP will continue its fundraising efforts nationwide throughout the year.
