The managing director of The Forshaw Group, Liam Hanlon, was busier than Santa’s elves during the Christmas period, attending various initiatives and events to celebrate the festive season and raise funds for worthwhile causes.
Community Christmas Day Dinner
The community really got into the Christmas spirit with a special Tri-4-Life Christmas day dinner held for around 100 veterans and their families at Tom Harrison House. Plenty of fun, food and festive cheer was served, with a carol sing-along of everyone’s favourite Christmas songs.
The Forshaw Group is a keen supporter of veterans and of helping them and their families to adjust and train for new careers in the civilian world. The company is on its way to achieving the Gold award status from the Armed Forces Covenant.
Boxing Day Dip for Stick ‘n’ Step
On Boxing Day morning, Liam Hanlon and over 100 other swimmers braved the chilly waters to take part in the annual Boxing Day Dip at West Kirby. Each entry fee was donated to the Wallasey and Runcorn-based cerebral palsy charity, Stick ‘n’ Step, which The Forshaw Group has supported for many years. Everyone enjoyed the fresh water swim, and a total of £550 was raised for the charity.
Boxing Day Tri-4-life Christmas carol sing-a-long
In the afternoon on Boxing Day, Liam Hanlon with Tri-4-Life also hosted a Christmas event at the Tranmere Rovers football club for nearly 80 adults in need. This included people suffering from homelessness, loneliness, or those just looking to celebrate a fun Christmas with others.
A hot Christmas dinner was served, with a festive carol sing-a-long, and a gift was given to each person in attendance. Everyone also received a ticket to watch the Tranmere Rovers vs Barrow AFC game held straight after the event.
Speaking of these festive events, managing director, Liam Hanlon, commented: “What a great way to round off a successful year, giving back to the community and spreading plenty of Christmas cheer!”
