Liverpool Mayor backs North Liverpool Foodbank campaign

Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson has urged residents in the city to give to a festive gift to help families in need, as part of the North Liverpool Foodbank campaign.

The Foodbank is hosting a Big Coffee Morning at St Andrew’s Church on Adshead Road in Clubmoor tomorrow, Wednesday 26 Novemeber from 10AM – 12PM, which Joe Anderson will also attend.

People are asked to bring their gifts, which will then be distributed to local families in time for Christmas.

North Liverpool Foodbank was the recent recipient of a £10,000 donation from the Mayor’s Hope Fund, aimed at relieving poverty in the Liverpool City Region. They were given additional funding to buy a van in order to transport food and other goods around the city.

Julie-Anne Wanless, St Andrew’s Community Network Manager, said:

“We’d really love people to come along on Wednesday and have a cup of coffee and some cake with us, find out more about what we do and also make a donation that will support a needy family. The gifts really do not need to be expensive, just something as simple as socks, a toy or toiletries will make a big difference to the lives of local people this festive season.”

Mayor Joe Anderson said:

“North Liverpool Foodbank does amazing work supporting families hit hard by the austerity measures and welfare reforms. I am really pleased that we have been able to support them through the Hope Fund, and I would urge people to donate to their festive appeal and make sure that local people have a better Christmas.”
