Cancer charity is raising money with LEGO bricks

The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity is fundraising using LEGO bricks, with a £500,000 target.

To help fund Liverpool’s first specialist cancer centre, Fundraising reports that the Clatterbridge Cancer Charity is asking members of the public to ‘buy’ a LEGO brick for £1, which is then assed to The Big LEGO Brick Hospital. The model uses half a million bricks, so has the potential to raise £500,000.

Bright Bricks has provided the model, with plans for how it will progress, using 45 different coloured bricks. The brick hospital will include detailed rooms containing details including MRI scanners, kitchens and elevators. 150 beds are made from 49 bricks each, with 200 minifigures staffing the facility.

Once the build is complete, it will displayed outside the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre in Wirral before going on a regional tour.

In total, he Clatterbridge Cancer Charity is aiming to raise £15 million towards the construction of the facility, which is due to open in 2020.
