Liverpool’s Royal Albert Dock has changed its colour this week in a unique show of support for the NSPCC’s Christmas appeal.

The historic landmark is the first around the country to ‘go green’ for the Get Your Sparkle On campaign, which takes place on December 11.

The campaign is about highlighting the work the charity does by encouraging the public to wear sparkling clothing or organising sparkle-themed events.

Deborah Sefton, fundraiser for the NSPCC, said: “

We are over the moon that Liverpool’s beautiful Royal Albert Dock is supporting us this year, and encouraging people to get their sparkle on in such a stunning and eye-catching fashion.
