We’ve had a busy year here at WSO Liverpool & Merseyside since last October’s events.
December 2016 – WSO Busk for the Homeless in Liverpool City Centre. We had a number of musicians including Jamie Bramwell, Gareth Heesom, Junior Dayvis, Oisin Hassan, Jimmy Rae, Sarah Wright, Ste Goodall, Jim Burke, Darren Shearer & Stephen Roberts take part. It was a wonderful few hours helping those in need who live on our streets.
March 2017 – We had a WSO family get together, most of the family managed to gather at Big Sis Pauline Town’s pub The Station in Ashton Under Lyne for a day of fund raising and laughter and I won a bottle of wine signed by Jeremy Corbyn. I also received a generous donation from Martin Atherton & Real Love Liverpool Street Team which I happily passed on to Pauline for her appeal in helping homeless families. We’ve made several visits since, donating furniture & household items to her cause.
April 2017 – WSO Liverpool & Merseyside linked up with local talented artists, including John Mercer who sold pieces of his art and donated every penny to us. Then we had Cyrano Denn who donated not one but two sets of his art for an online auction and Alan Morgan joined in by donating some of his images to sell – every penny from all the sales went to LCVS Everyday Changes Fund – https://www.lcvs.org.uk/give/everyday-changes-fund/
May 2017 – August 2017 – WSO Liverpool & Merseyside linked up with the Critical Care Staff at AlderHey Children’s Hospital. Together we collected sanitary products for The Homeless Period Liverpool, run by Natalie Denny. Also, food products, sanitary products and school uniforms for Liverpool 6 Community Association, run by Gerard Woodhouse & Jackie Connolly.
Spreading the word to our politicians – WSO Liverpool & Merseyside met up with a number of Labour Politicians including Jeremy Corbyn, Steve Rotheram and Dan Carden to talk about what our aims are, not only locally but nationally.
