Alt Valley Community Trust has been the North Liverpool collection point for this appeal organised by Vorny Redmond. Ms Redmond states “…the idea came from me just wanting to do a bit of good this Christmas and when I was in school we used to do shoebox appeals to be shipped abroad but I thought it would be nice to do something within our own community especially as the need for it is so huge”
In partnership with Our Lady and St Swithins School over 70 boxes have been collected through the generosity of local children, the wider Croxteth Community and staff at the Trust. Recipients of the gifts included: The First Step, The Whitechapel Centre, The Basement, SHAP and Wirral Ark.
All of these Organisations have said how thrilled they are to be receiving these Christmas presents for their beneficiaries.
Many thanks to all those who sent in Christmas gifts: You have helped to bring Christmas cheer to vulnerable communities across the city!
