Arena staff smash pounds 10k mark for charity.

STAFF at ACC Liverpool today announced they have raised more than pounds 10,000 for Liverpool Unites.

Employees at the waterfront venue, led by their own team of 10 "Charity Champions", have organised a host of fundraising events since adopting the ECHO's children's charity in 2009.

Events planned by workers at ACC, the home to BT Convention Centre and ECHO arena, included bake off competitions, dress down days and quiz nights.

Bob Prattey, chief executive of ACC Liverpool, presented pounds 10,952 to the charity's mascot Robbie Ribbon and ECHO editor Alastair Machray.

He said: "Liverpool Unites is a charity close to all our hearts and we regularly organise fundraising activities, from donations for dress down days to some energetic staff taking part in the city's annual Santa Dash. We originally set ourselves a target of pounds 10,000 and are thrilled that we have been able to reach this through our efforts for such a worthwhile cause."
