Sue Johnston visits Alder Hey and reads to brave young patients
Royle Family star Sue Johnston visited Alder Hey to read a book raising funds for the children’s hospital charity.
The actress was invited to read the book about 'The Hardleeys' - an anagram of Alder Hey - who are a family of puppets who lived in a burrow under the old Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.
Sue said: “When I was asked to read the story of The Hardleeys, my initial thought was who or what on earth are Hardleeys.
“But I soon learnt all about the adorable family of creatures and it is wonderful to contribute to Alder Hey Children’s Charity in this way.”
