The Beatles Story at the Royal Albert Dock in Liverpool is to launch a recreation of the famous ‘John and Yoko Bed In’ to support local charity KIND on Friday December 8.
Visitors are invited to drop off donations of pyjamas to provide warmth and comfort to local children in need this Christmas.
KIND Liverpool is a local charity that supports disadvantaged children and families across Merseyside. The ‘Bed In and Be Kind This Christmas’ appeal aims to collect donations of new pyjamas for children of all ages to ensure that they have warm and comfortable sleepwear during the festive season, to be included in Christmas hampers along with gifts and food donations.
The Beatles Story staff will be taking it in turns to participate in a 24-hour revival of John & Yoko’s famous Bed In at The Royal Albert Dock’s Fab4 Café from Saturday December 9 to Monday Decemebr 11, and visitors are invited to take selfies with the bed (kindly supplied by Holiday Inn Express Liverpool) and drop off donations of new pyjamas in all sizes, from newborn to 16 years old, before the 18th December.
“Every pair of pyjamas that we receive will make a difference in supporting disadvantaged children in our community,” said The Beatles Story’s general manager, Mary Chadwick. “We are delighted to support KIND this year and with the help of donations from our visitors we can make this Christmas a happy one for disadvantaged families across Liverpool City Region.”
In addition, KIND Liverpool is also accepting donations of toys and food to be included in Christmas hampers distributed amongst children and families in the community who are struggling at this special time of year.
