• Archbishop Blanch School Educate Magazine Clatterbridge Cancer Centre

Helping hand for centre

Archbishop Blanch School were joined by their friends at the Rotary Club of Liverpool as host of the Big Lego Brick Hospital.

This is an initiative to support and raise funds for the building of the new Clatterbridge Cancer Centre in Liverpool.

The new Clatterbridge is currently being built next to the new Royal Hospital, very close to the site of their old school building on Mount Vernon Road.

The new centre will host the UK’s largest teenage oncology unit, with 11 dedicated suites for teenagers and young adults.

The fundraising efforts will go towards the facilities that will make these suites as comfortable and normal for all young people affected by cancer.

So why the Lego? The Clatterbridge charity is building an exact Lego replica of the new hospital at a scale of 1 to 40.

The finished model will have 500,000 Lego bricks, which are being sold off at £1 per brick. Their aim is to raise £1000 which will cover the cost of a Lego bedroom!

Students are encouraged to contribute whatever they can to the cause, which they can do by donating during the school day.

The schools fantastic head girl team will be going around at break and lunch to collect loose change donations. We would also love to see parents donate to the cause, and the easiest way of doing this will be through the Just Giving page which we have set up for this event.
