Team from Barclays bank invest their time in Liverpool Sunflowers makeover

Merseyside cancer support charity, Liverpool Sunflowers has received a makeover thanks to a team of staff from Barclays Bank.

Andy Hankin and a team of 14 staff volunteers from the bank’s Contact Centre based in Wavertree Technology gave up two days of work to provide the charity’s premises with some much needed renovation, painting and decorating work.

The workers transformed the drop–in facilities at Sunflowers Centre, which is based on Aigburth Road and acts as a base for free counselling and support services for anyone from Merseyside affected by a cancer diagnosis.

The work was undertaken as part of a Barclay’s Bank community relations programme, which releases staff to volunteer in work hours to support good causes in their local communities.

Joan Elmer, Chief Executive of Liverpool Sunflowers said of the results:

“I want to say a huge thank you to the team from Barclay Bank for all of their hard work this week, on behalf of all those we support in Merseyside who are living with a cancer diagnosis.”

“The team have transformed our facilities, helping to make our communal areas brighter, warmer, more friendly and inviting for everyone who drops in to access our services.”

Liverpool Sunflowers is a registered charity which offer a wide range of free and professional support to cancer patients and their family members, including, alternative therapies, activity groups, and group support sessions.

It also provides an informal drop-in advisory service at the Liverpool Sunflowers Centre, which is open daily between 10.00am – 4.00pm.
