Change of venue: LFC fans’ charity night for Zoe’s place

Zoes PlaceThe charity night organised by Liverpool FC fans’ website and forum,, originally arranged to take place at The Sandon, is now going to take place at The Clarence Hotel, Utting Avenue, Anfield, L4 8SX.

As before, the proceeds are going to Zoe’s Place Children’s Hospice.

The time and date are the same: June 14th at 7.30pm. But after some issues with the original venue the organisers have moved the function about a quarter of a mile away to the Clarence Hotel, which is on the corner of Utting Avenue and Cherry Lane. As an extra bonus the Clarence are providing their venue for free, which is an excellent gesture. Tickets are still available, as are raffle tickets and so on.

Zöe’s Place Liverpool was the first baby hospice in the UK, until a second Zöe’s place opened in Middlesbrough in 2004. Another Zöe’s place is due to open soon in Coventry, such has been the success. They provide 24-hour one-to-one respite and palliative nursing care for children from birth to five-year-old who are suffering from life-threatening or life-limiting conditions.

The Liverpool hospice, in West Derby, can accommodate up to six infants at a time, although they have far more children on their books than that – 45 at the last count according to the Zoe’s Place website.

The charity night itself will be an opportunity for Reds to meet up and have a drink, and there’s a buffet too to help soak some of that drink up. There’ll also be a disco, so you can either dance or protest strongly that you don’t dance. A bit like going to a family wedding do, without having to put up with the bit of the family you aren’t keen on. And as an extra bonus there’s even going to be a live act so it should be a great night.

On top of that there are some excellent raffle prizes on offer, including a Steven Gerrard signed Liverpool shirt, a Michael Owen signed England shirt, a trip around Anfield for 4 people (not just a wander around the outside of the stadium of course) , some Liverpool FC DVDs, and “much more”.
