“It is customary for the Lady Captain of Shaw Hill to raise funds for a charity and I although there are many deserving causes, I had no difficulty in choosing Alder Hey Children’s Hospital after my grandson Knox Davidson had to have a serious head operation aged 24 weeks as he was born with Cranial Fusion.

“He has just turned three and is healthy, happy and perfect and for that we are eternally grateful. The care and support he received at Alder Hey was second to none and we are grateful for the chance to give a little back.”
