‘Community’ of ASDA Birkenhead come together to support our young homeless
Wirral Supported Lodgings (WSL) householders, young people, staff, and family members took part in a charity bag pack in ASDA Birkenhead store recently and, with the help of Nichola, the in-store ‘Community Champion’ and their thoughtful customers, they raised a massive £397.94p in only three and a half hours.
Alison Egan from WSL team commented “We found that people who came into the store were very generous - we even had a few people saying they had no money on them but only to find they would come back to the store 20 minutes later to donate.”
The money that was raised on the day was used to fund the costs of taking the WSL young people on a special pre-Christmas day out on the 8th December - this included ice skating at Liverpool ONE, followed by a meal afterwards.
WSL staff and clients would like to say a big “Thank You” to everyone who supported us with our event.
At the moment, Support Lodgings are recruiting new householders in all areas of Wirral, Liverpool, Sefton, Knowsley and Denbighshire & Flintshire.
