Eurovision 2023 branding to be turned into merchandise to raise money for charity

November 22, 2023


The Eurovision 2023 branding has been turned into must-have memorabilia in aid of charity.

The Eurovision Song Contest 2023 branding that was seen on many a banner and flag throughout Liverpool have now been turned into limited edition memorabilia in aid of the charity Children in Need, with over 100 banners and flags being transformed.

There is a limited number of this unique memorabilia, in which prices range from £20 to £100. It is worth noting that some of these items may not be 100% perfect, due to the flags and banners being used in Liverpool this May, so small signs of weathering may be visible on certain products.

Due to the limited amount stock, only one of each type of item can be purchased per transaction, and the resale of items is strictly prohibited. The items will go on sale at 10:00 GMT on Friday 24th November from the official Children in Need shop. The items are only available in the United Kingdom.

Children in Need is a British charity that has been helping people across the United Kingdom since it began in 1980. So far, they have raised over 1 billion pounds for disadvantaged children and young people in the United Kingdom.

In Liverpool more specifically, Children in Need is currently funding 13 projects to the value of more than £662,000, supporting children and young people who may be facing additional challenges in their lives, whether that be children and young people living in poverty, providing emergency support to families in crisis, providing comfort to children feeling sad, lost and alone, helping children overcome social injustice or supporting children to feel safe and secure again.

Eurovision 2023 came to Liverpool for the first time, and back to the United Kingdom for a ninth time. After 2022 winners Ukraine were unable to safely host the contest in their country, runners-up United Kingdom stepped in to co-host alongside Ukraine.

The M&S Bank Arena in the heart of Liverpool played host to 37 delegations. Loreen went on achieve a seventh Eurovision win for Sweden, and a second win for herself, becoming the first solo female act to win Eurovision more than once.

The United Kingdom weren’t quite able to match the success that Sam Ryder achieved with “Space Man” in 2022. Mae Muller represented the United Kingdom on home soil with self penned track “I Wrote A Song”, which earned her 24th place in the final.
