Everton FC Women players spread joy when they visited Claire House Liverpool to support the charity’s Butterfly Bake.

On Wednesday, players joined young Evertonians from Claire House Children’s Hospice for cake decorating, making their day brighter.

Along with midfielders Lucy Hope and Heather Payne, keeper Courtney Brosnan posed for pictures, signed autographs and spoke with the families.

Children took part in the workshop together with Claire House staff members and Everton Women players during the heartwarming event.

Players and families got to work piping, cutting, and colouring a variety of delicious cupcakes with a football theme to take home.

In addition to the lifeline support provided at the entire hospice in Wirral and in the community, the Everton Women teammates also enjoyed a tour of the West Derby site.

It brought attention to the charity’s annual Butterfly Bake, which highlights Claire House’s essential end-of-life care.

Speaking about the visit, Everton’s Lucy Hope stressed the importance of giving something back to the community.

She said:

“It’s been incredible to visit Claire House Liverpool and help to raise awareness of the Butterly Bake.

“We’ve been cake decorating so it’s been light-hearted, everyone was in a good mood, and we’ve been getting covered in flour!

“If I had all the money in the world, I would give it back to Claire House. Families would be so lost without Claire House. 

“They can come here, smile, enjoy themselves and take their minds off everything that is going on at home. Claire House is like a hug to the families.”

The bereavement care offered at Claire House and in homes throughout Merseyside, Cheshire, and North Wales is the inspiration behind the name of the Butterfly Bake.

Claire House provided end-of-life care and support to one hundred infants, kids, and young adults in the previous year.

Cora Shafto, Community Engagement Manager at Claire House, said:

“It was lovely to welcome Everton Women to Claire House and great to see some of our families spending time with the players, having fun and decorating football-themed cupcakes.

“We would like to say a massive thanks to Courtney, Heather and Lucy for rolling up their sleeves and helping to support this year’s Butterfly Bake.

“There are lots of different ways you can get involved and by taking part in ‘raising some dough’ for Claire House, you could be helping our vital end of life care provided by our Butterfly team.”
