Come and join us at The Blue Mallard for some singing, good food and fun!
Face for Business is continuing to raise funds for our nominated charity, Twinkle House! We’re hosting a fundraising event at The Blue Mallard, based in Burscough Wharf, with special entertainment from Maurice Cannon, formerly of The Drifters, who will be delighting us with Drifters classics such as ‘Up on the Roof’ and ‘Saturday Night at the Movies’! Twinkle House ambassador, Goldie (of X-Factor fame) will also be at the event, and will tell guests more about Twinkle House, its wonderful staff and services.
The tickets cost £25.00 each, and includes a delicious 3-course meal and entertainment, as described above. Face for Business staff members will be at the event, and are looking forward to the community spirit that, they hope, will be there in abundance!
At the event we hope to raise £2000 which is well on the way to reach this year’s fundraising target of £5000. However, the charity needs to raise £50,000 annually to cover the running costs.
Raffle and quiz prizes
There will be a raffle and a special quiz – we’ve had so many great prizes donated from local businesses – from beauty vouchers to meal vouchers and gifts galore. One of our call answering PAs, Sue Pierce-Jones has been instrumental in collecting prizes. Andy MacGregor, the owner of the business, has been so impressed with the support received so far from local businesses. He says “It’s fantastic to see so many of our neighbouring businesses showing their support for the children’s centre in Skelmersdale. We really want to raise the profile of the charity, and of course, raise more funds to help with its running costs. Sue has done a magnificent job!”
Our staff have raised just over £300 to date from their own fundraising efforts, but are now turning to members of their local community to help increase this figure. They have a very ambitious Local Giving target too, which they are hoping to achieve via a separate campaign. We would like to encourage you to make a donation here.

Please help support Twinkle House
We cannot express how much we’d appreciate even the smallest donation to help Twinkle House keep their services free. They help children in our area, who gain so much from the centre. Visit our Local Giving page to make a donation. Thank you. https://localgiving.org/fundraising/twinklehouseskem
