Little Kings & Queens in Litherland will be helping the OK (Oliver King) Foundation at the end of February, where they will be opening their doors to the public for a free fun family open day. The day is free to attend but donations to the foundation and there will be lots to do for everyone, from face painting to meeting Disney & Marvel Comics characters & superheroes like Spiderman.

The Oliver King Foundation is determined to save as many young lives as possible, by ensuring that no other family has to suffer a similar loss to that of Oliver King. The charity began in January 2012 following the sudden and tragic death of young Oliver from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome, a hidden heart condition which kills 12 young people every week. Oliver attended King David High School in Liverpool when he suffered a cardiac arrest whilst winning a swimming race. It is estimated that 270 children die every year from the hidden condition whilst at school.

Little Kings & Queens Manager Linda Royden, said: “This is a great opportunity to provide a day’s entertainment and at the same time raise funds and provide insight into the work that goes on at the fantastic OK Foundation. As someone who works with children on a daily basis it is essential that we raise awareness of first aid and I know the OK Foundation have placed over 800 defibrillators in schools and organisations across the UK. We hope the day raises funds to pay for more.”

Full attractions will include:- • Dance Classes • Arts & Crafts • Bouncy Castle • Appearance from Marvel Superhero characters as well as Disney Characters

  • Face painting plus much more.

The event takes place at Little Kings & Queens, 74 Litherland Road Bootle, L20 3HZ, on Sunday 19th  February from 10am – 4pm, with all money raised going to the OK Foundation. For anyone wanting to get involved please call – 0151 281 9220.
