Liam Gibbons, from Chirk, will be hosting a 24-hour video game stream in order to raise money for the new Jebb Garden in Ellesmere on Saturday 11th April 2020.


Liam, who is an avid gamer shares his video gaming through live streaming on video sharing site ‘Twitch’,  with his streams reaching viewers all around the globe.


He is hoping the stream will help to raise more publicity for the Jebb Garden once it has been completed, and also raise funds for both the Ellesmere Sculpture Initiative and the Save the Children charity.

Liam said, “This will be my first time doing a charity stream and I’m super excited to be fund raising for such a good cause.”


The Jebb Garden in Ellesmere is the result of an 18-month project ran by the Ellesmere Sculpture Initiative to commemorate the Jebb sisters, who set up Save the Children in 1919, to help children left starving in Germany and Austria at the end of World War 1.


The initiative has been led by volunteers working in partnership with Save the Children in Ellesmere, members of the Jebb family, Shropshire council, Ellesmere town council, seven local schools and various community groups.


The Jebb garden will feature a labyrinth leading to a figure of a lone refugee child seeking shelter, with another sculptural artwork overlooking the garden representing the Jebb sisters in an abstract form.


Once completed, the Jebb garden can be found in Cremorne Gardens, alongside the mere at Ellesmere – less than a mile from the country house where the Jebb sisters were born, and where the Jebb family still live.


The charity stream will take place on Liam’s Twitch channel ‘LiamG2818’, the stream will start at 9am on Saturday 11th April and will end at 9am on Sunday 12th April. You can donate through the gofundme page which can be found on the stream.
