Burton’s Biscuits staff host children’s tea party for Wirral charity Stick ‘n’ Step
1:28pm Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in News
STAFF from Burton's Biscuits in Moreton hosted a tea party for local charity Stick 'n' Step as part of its volunteering commitments to this year's BBC Children In Need appeal.
Seven children and their carers from the charity, which provides free specialist education and support services to children with cerebral palsy, came along to the event at the chocolate refinery on Pasture Road.
The children, aged between six and 11 years old, had the chance to try delicious Burton's chocolate from a fountain and received hugs and balloons from the appeal's mascot Pudsey.
They were treated to a factory tour at the refinery and were also handed goodie bags at the end of the day.
Burton's also agreed to provide the transport to pick up the children from the Stick 'n' Step centre in Wallasey and drop them back at the end of the day.
Hayley Barker, quality manager at Burton's, said: "Our involvement with Children in Need this year has meant we can really give back to the communities in which we operate, and this is no different.
"We were really pleased to be able to do this for our friends at Stick 'n' Step."
Kerry Roe-Ely, community and events fundraiser at Stick 'n' Step, said: "The children all had a fantastic time at the party and especially loved the chocolate!
"It's great to be able to team up with local organisations like this to provide a treat for the children."
