Christmas Appeal success!
Throughout December, we called upon the support and generosity of kind-hearted Individuals and socially minded businesses alike to provide a safe, comfortable and happy Christmas for those that rely on our services.
The children, adults and families that we support and care for are amongst the most vulnerable and at-risk in Merseyside – for them, the impact of the coronavirus pandemic will be felt severely this winter and many will feel in crisis.
To help provide some much needed festive cheer and ease suffering, we looked to the business community to provide Christmas hampers filled with food essentials and some festive treats, toys, winter clothing, toiletries and other vital supplies.
In the face of a second national lockdown and ongoing regional restrictions, the sheer level of donations has made this year’s appeal a record breaker! The support we received has exceeded all expectations – with the equivalent of over £26,000 raised and well over 1000 deserving beneficiaries supported!
The list of amazing businesses that have helped us exceed our target include:
Lloyd’s Bank’s Liverpool and Chester Contact Centres , Refined Marketing, Yellow Top Taxis, Red Neighbours, LFC Foundation (in collaboration with Cadburys #IWILL), B&M Retail, Longworth Building Services, Merseycare, TATA consultancy, Old Swan Walk in Centre, Aldi, Associated Independent Stores, Rawlings Safety and Training Consultancy Services Ltd, Vitaflo International LTD and Randstad Recruitment.
CEO Normandie Wragg said:
‘We are so very grateful for the support we have received so far, so many business have recognised the importance of helping others at this time of year and it will enable us to make Christmas special for our beneficiaries. After such a difficult year it really will go a long way to putting a smile on people’s faces.’
