A Liverpool based charity is again calling on the people of Merseyside to donate pyjamas for children who are in need and we are helping them out!
Getting a set of new pyjamas on Christmas Eve is tradition for many children, who gleefully put them on before heading to bed, dreaming of Santa’s visit.
Last year, Pyjama Party Liverpool supplied 2862 young children living in homeless situations, hostels or refuges with new pyjamas.
The charity, set up by mum and daughter duo Karen and Ash Downing, is calling on the people of Merseyside to help them spread even more Christmas cheer and beat last year’s record donation.
Pyjama Party Liverpool is again partnering with one of the region’s largest housing associations, Regenda Homes, along with a host of other Merseyside businesses.
Karen Downing said: “When we set up the charity, we couldn’t have imagined how the whole of Merseyside would take it to their hearts.
“Getting new pyjamas on Christmas Eve was a massive tradition in our house growing up and something that we just took for granted.
“All we want to do is spread a little Christmas cheer and comfort to children across region, and make sure that those who are less fortunate than us has new, warm, comfy set of pyjamas to sleep in.”
Kevin Short, Team Leader at Regenda Homes, said: “We are delighted to be working with Pyjama Party Liverpool again this year.
“The charity was a huge success with our staff and also our residents, who donated a huge amount of pyjamas last year.
“Our city centre office, Commutation Plaza, which is located right next to the Empire Theatre is a drop off point for the public.”
Pyjama Party Liverpool is looking for new pyjamas in all sizes from baby to young adult.
Donations can be dropped off at Regenda Homes, Commutation Plaza, 1 Commutation Row, Liverpool, Merseyside L3 8QF, Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm.
Alternative drop off points can be found on the Pyjama Party Facebook page, facebook.com/PyjamaPartyLiv
