Families whose children who have liver disease were treated to a special Christmas party this weekend (December 14) by Children’s Liver Disease Foundation (CLDF). The Birmingham based charity brought 20 families from the Midlands and beyond to Rowheath Pavilion in Bournville for an afternoon of arts and crafts, party games, a disco and of course a visit from Father Christmas.
At the event, which was supported by the Birmingham office of Mills & Reeve, parents were able to meet and share their experiences, while children took the opportunity to have fun with others who live with rare liver disease.
Alison Taylor, Chief Executive of Children’s Liver Disease Foundation commented: “Childhood liver disease is a rare and lifelong condition, which can make it very isolating. Saturday’s Christmas party enabled us to bring families together outside a hospital setting, not only to have fun but to help build valuable peer support networks and help these young people realise they are not alone. We’re very grateful to Mills & Reeve for their help in making this event happen.”
