“I think it’s a fantastic gesture from Barrie. These kids have probably been deprived of an awful lot of things that people take for granted and for them to come along, sit in comfort, have a bit of food and hopefully watch Liverpool win, then I’m sure it will be a dream come true.
The Box4Kids initiative is a wonderful way of giving young children who are seriously ill or physically challenged a very special day out. They can attend a big football match or major sporting event and be treated first-hand to a VIP experience and an unrivalled view of the action on the pitch from ‘their own’ hospitality box. Barrie Wells has a very kind heart.
I was delighted to have been invited to accompany some of our children and young people from Alder Hey to Box4Kids at Liverpool Football Club. You could feel their excitement and the sense of pleasure to be out of hospital with their parents enjoying an experience that many of them had only ever dreamed of. The whole event was wonderful and great fun and Barrie’s hosting made everyone feel extra special.
Elliot was so lucky to have the amazing chance of visiting Box4Kids at Liverpool Football Club. He was a fanatical supporter of the Mighty Reds and described his night in the box as the “best night of his life”! As a parent, to witness that joy on your child’s face is irreplaceable.
