Virgin Trains Gets Behind The Big LEGO® Brick Hospital

Published on : Friday, August 9, 2019

Virgin TrainsRuncorn Station played host to The Big LEGO® Brick Hospital this week. Customers were given the chance to buy a brick for £1 and help build the model, which when finished is will be one of the biggest ever LEGO® brick structures in the UK, measuring 1.6m x 2.8m x 1.6m.

 

 

In addition, Virgin Trains donated £4,000, with the station team showing their skills to build two specialist rooms for the model, which will contain more than 100 rooms and 200 mini figures, such as doctors and nurses.

 

 

The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity’s campaign is aiming to raise £500,000 towards construction of the specialist hospital in the centre of Liverpool and improvements to their Wirral site. The real new cancer hospital is set to open its doors in 2020.

 

 

“Clatterbridge has provided some incredible support for cancer patients and their families in the Wirral and wider North West region,” explained Gary Campbell, Virgin Trains Station Manager for Runcorn Station.

 

 

“I know first-hand about their amazing work as they treated my mum for breast cancer three years ago and we were only too pleased to help promote The Big LEGO® Brick Hospital. It’s a fun and interactive way to raise some much-needed funds.”

 

 

Katrina Bury, Head of The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity, said: “I would like to thank Virgin Trains for their generous sponsorship towards the construction cost of the new state of the art cancer hospital in Liverpool.

 

“They also gave us the fabulous opportunity to showcase the Big LEGO® Brick Hospital at Runcorn Station, so train passengers could buy bricks and help build the model. We very much welcome this wonderful support and the opportunity to spread the word about the valuable services provided by The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre to the people of the region.”
