Tranmere Rovers today collaborated with Tranmere Rovers Trust and Wirral Ways to distribute 60 food parcels to hostels around the Wirral.
We distributed the parcels, kindly put together by Tranmere Rovers Trust, to hostels where people are staying who may be suffering from a range of issues such as substance misuse, addictions, entrenched rough sleeping, mental health and domestic abuse, many of whom are supported by Wirral Ways.
Hostels such as those set up by Forum Housing Association, where we delivered the parcels today, offer support services to people who are at risk of, about to become, or are homeless.
They focus on developing confidence, skills, resilience, and positive life choices to enable people to live independently, be self-reliant, and become valued members of their community.
In the midst of the cost-of-living crisis, the hostels greatly appreciate any help we can give towards providing for the people they kindly look after.
The network of people connected by the help of Wirral Ways made it possible for us to distribute the food parcels to those who need them most.
Matt Houghton, Senior Community Manager at Tranmere Rovers, said:
“We know that many people are currently struggling with the cost of living increases; so much so that getting food and essentials can be a real challenge.
"Together with the Trust and the support of our partners at Wirral Ways, we’ve distributed these food hampers to those in need. Tranmere is more than a football club and over the next couple of months we’ll continue to support our community through what is a difficult time. I’d like to thank the Trust for their continued support as well as Ray and Paul at Wirral Ways who we have a fantastic working relationship with."
