Merseyside Police Federation and Chief Constables Annual Charity Dinner, supporting Oakleaf Children’s and Young Persons Service took place on Thursday 4th November 2021 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Liverpool City Centre and was a huge success!
We were thrilled to have been chosen by the Merseyside Police Federation Charitable Trust this year to receive monies raised from their Annual Charity Dinner and can’t thank them enough for their support on the evening which raised over £12,000 to help to fund our Oakleaf Children’s service.
The Merseyside Police Federation Charitable Trust works to support the community and individuals across Merseyside; concentrating effort on hard to reach and disadvantaged communities. The Charity is administered entirely by the Merseyside Police Federation at Green Lane. It has no overheads and no expenses are paid to any individuals involved. Every penny raised is donated back into the Merseyside community.
The Charity Dinner is primarily attended by Merseyside Police Federation service providers and local and national businesses who have supported this event for many years. The charity was only registered in 2006 and since then has donated over £500,000 to local charities, individuals and causes across Merseyside.
The only money the charity receives comes from income generated from the charity night and from lottery subscriptions that the police officers subscribe to from their salary and all the money is then donated back out to needy individuals and causes throughout the Merseyside Area.
Oakleaf is the Children’s and Young Persons Service at Liverpool Bereavement Service. Oakleaf works with children and young people from 4 to 18 who are suffering the devastation and effects of losing or separated from someone of great importance in their young life. Oakleaf provides them a safe and confidential space in which to explore their feelings and emotions where they can be truly heard and understood.
The entertainment on the night was fantastic and there were some really fabulous raffle prizes to be won. We were thrilled to be able to go along to the dinner and tell people about our Oakleaf Service and thank people for supporting this valuable provision for the children and young people of Merseyside.
