Edge Hill University
shares Christmas spirit with those who need it most
EDGE Hill University is proud to
spread Christmas cheer in Ormskirk and surrounding communities this festive
season, donating food items and more than 300 wrapped gifts to those who
need it most.
This year the University 'Giving Tree' will support the Liverpool's
Crisis centre; the national charity for single homeless people, and the
Birchwood Centre's work with young people to prevent homelessness and
improve wellbeing. Aisling Benson, Edge Hill Staff Wellbeing Manager said the generosity of
staff and students has meant the University can support more community
groups than last year. "Every year the staff and students at Edge Hill University dig deep to
support our local community, especially those who otherwise may not get a
hot meal or a gift during the festive season. The enthusiasm for this years' appeal has meant that we can reach more
members of our local community than last year; a feat that our staff and
students are proud to celebrate," she said.
Staff events in the lead up to the Christmas break will also support the
Ormskirk Foodbank and the Southport Soup Kitchen.
