Oldham clubbers urged to ‘Give a Kid a Quid’ this Christmas

Date published: 05 December 2018

Love Island star Chris Hughes is among those backing a Christmas children’s charity drive by Oldham club Liquid, which is asking clubbers to ‘Give a Kid a Quid’.

Festive revellers at the Retiro Street venue are being invited to donate spare change to the Echo Trust to benefit local children’s charities.

The Echo Trust was set up in 2002 by the Deltic Group, the UK’s largest operator of premium late-night bars and clubs.

Since then it has raised more than £2.5 million and supported causes ranging from children’s charities to children’s hospitals.

Liquid general manager Terry Bruce said: “Christmas is a time for giving and we’re sure our customers will respond generously to our appeal.

"‘Give a Kid a Quid’ is a simple way to raise a lot of money that will transform the lives of local young people in our community.”

The appeal is on now and runs until New Year’s Eve.
