Here's how to get in touch: email: Write to: Communities Team, Liverpool ECHO, PO Box 48, Old HALL Street, Liverpool, L69 3EB Facebook: Liverpool L69 3EB A NATIONAL charity helpline, providing support to thousands of children across the UK when they need it the most, has received a PS24,000 boost as the result of a fundraising opera evening.

The National Youth Advocacy Service (NYAS), which has its head office in Birkenhead, hosted the gala evening at Thornton Manor, on the Wirral, inviting guests from across the private sector to attend in a bid to raise funds for its dedicated helpline.

Funds raised by the gala opera evening will go directly to support the continued operation of the helpline. The evening was sponsored by Miton Group plc (Miton) an organisation which has donated PS78,233 to NYAS as part of a three-year partnership which saw the asset management group hold a series of events dedicated to raising funds for the NYAS helpline.

Entertainment at the NYAS opera evening was provided by international tenor, Peter Auty, soprano, Verity Parker and highly acclaimed pianist, Charlotte Forrest.

CEO of NYAS, Rita Waters, said: "Our charity felt very privileged to have hosted this event, set in the magical surrounds of Thornton Manor and featuring such magnificent performances from Peter, Verity and Charlotte.

"We are extremely grateful for their involvement and for the invaluable support of Miton who made the evening possible.

"Miton's financial support, combined with the hugely generous donations made by all those who attended our opera evening, will make a significant difference to the lives of thousands of vulnerable children, whom we wouldn't be able to reach out to otherwise." | For more information on NYAS, please visit their website at DOZENS of good causes received a boost as the Co-op revealed a PS191k community fund.

The money will be shared by 66 organisations including Riveroaks, who were recently presented with their cheque at the Co-op in Mossley Hill.

This brings the amount the Co-op has invested in good causes in Liverpool, since the scheme launched in September, 2016, to PS376,000.

MERSEYSIDE law firm, Brown Turner Ross, hosted a charity bash raising over PS3,400 for Mencap Liverpool.

With music from Xander and the Peace Pirates and speeches from the firm's Samantha Bushell and Mencap Liverpool's chief executive Sarah Jones, revellers enjoyed a night to remember, with art work from Mackenzie Thorpe, signed memorabilia and a host of other prizes auctioned off by David Bushell.

THIS is Chloe, a pupil at St Paul's, in West Derby, who visited Woodlands to hand over a PS220 cheque after a sweet raffle at her school. Chloe raised the money in memory of her grandmother, Susan, who had been cared for at the Hospice. Well done!
