Morecrofts collect advent calendars for children in hospital this christmas

Morecrofts took part in the campaign by The For Ava Foundation to collect advent calendars for children who will be in hospital over Christmas.

The firm chose to support the For Ava Foundation as its chosen organisation from April 2018.

The For Ava Foundation is a small organisation which raises funds to buy items for ‘Be There Boxes’ for children who are enduring long stays in hospital.

It was founded by Kelly & Mark Stokes following their daughter Ava going through two difficult long stays in hospital after being diagnosed with a rare liver cancer then Acute Myeloid Leukaemia.

Kelly, Mark, Ava (who is now doing well) and her brother Alex all visited Alder Hey and Manchester Children’s Hospital to deliver the calendars. They were joined by the BBS and ITS Granada film crews.


So far, Morecrofts have raised thousands of pounds for the organisation from the Merseyside Independent Business Awards, staff initiatives, team fundraising and internal donations.
