Families are receiving food hampers thanks to donations from ABL Wirral, Wirral’s stop smoking service and Wirral Council’s public health team.
Employees took part in a ‘Reverse Advent Calendar’ in November and December to collect food and toiletries for the Wirral charity Community Spirit.
Elizabeth Woodworth, at ABL Wirral, said: “Community Spirit Wirral does an amazing job supporting people across the borough and we were more than happy to get involved. This is a great charity to support – and just a small donation can make a difference to people who may be struggling.”
Rebecca Mellor from the council’s public health service said: “Mandy Upton and her team of volunteers, supply food, often daily, to the homeless and working families alike. The team is on the streets of Birkenhead every week feeding 60+ homeless and vulnerable men and women. They also support people in domestic abuse situations and provide clothing and furniture and a listening ear.”
