We are delighted to announce that for the fifth year in a row, we are running ‘Super White Christmas’ which will involve collections, food hampers, parties and fun events to help disadvantaged  people in Wirral enjoy their Christmas.

The Super White Christmas Appeal will help both children and adults enjoy some of the festive experiences which most of us take for granted.

Last year’s event was altered slighting due to the COVID-19 pandemic but due to the incredible generosity of the Super White Army, we were able to supply over 400 food hampers and presents to those struggling. This year with things going back to normal we can return to our more traditional ways and make it bigger and better than ever.

This year's activities will include:

A Christmas party for children aged 6-14 will take place on Saturday 18th December at 12pm prior to our home match against Leyton Orient and will include a day of activities, a ticket for the game; plus every child will meet Father Christmas and go home with a gift from the Club. 

Since opening our Beechwood Recreation Centre in May 2021 we have had a high level of activity and engagement with the children in the area and therefore will be hosting another Christmas Party on the 23rd December for those children.

On Sunday 26th December, before our home game against Barrow AFC, we will be hosting an event for adults in need. We are inviting adults who are suffering from loneliness, homelessness or would just need cheering up over the Christmas Period who we think would benefit from this event.

We hope to give adults who might not be able to access a hot meal, someone to talk to or a safe place over Christmas with something to look forward to.

The event will be hosted for up to 50 adults at the Tranmere Rovers Recreation Centre, Borough Road from 12-2pm. There will be a hot meal, entertainment, and a gift given to each adult in attendance. As well as a ticket for entry into the Tranmere Rovers vs Barrow AFC game held straight after the event. The adults can join in with as much or as little as they would like to.

On Christmas Day, we will be welcoming care leavers to Prenton Park for Christmas dinner and some festive activities to enjoy!

We are privileged to have the facilities and amazing volunteers to help make Christmas Day more enjoyable for those that need 

Every year, with the support of the SWA, we make sure that people who are suffering real financial hardship, those who have recently left local authority care, those who are homeless or isolated and lonely, are not forgotten.  With your help, every year we allow hundreds of local individuals and families to enjoy the little things that most of us can take for granted over the Christmas period.  

We have planned a jam-packed programme this year, of childrens' Christmas parties, hampers, Christmas dinners and Boxing Day festivities, but we can only do it with the amazing support of the SWA, who year after year donate time and money to make it happen."

Finally and continuing on from last years food hamper deliveries we are working in partnership with the Tranmere Rovers Trust to deliver 200 food hampers to families who are in financial difficulty or individuals in isolation.
