Building Bridges In The Community

The Steve Morgan Foundation has marked the fifth anniversary of the Bridge Community Centre in Liverpool by making a funding award for the next three years.

The grant of over £26,000 will help the running costs of the Bridge Community Centre, which provides a wide range of activities and support for people in the local area in Clubmoor.

Run totally by volunteers, they have an open-door policy and flexible approach and offer drop-ins, support, social and recreational groups, accredited training courses and a café.

The five-year anniversary and official handover of the Steve Morgan Foundation also co-incided with the opening of a new Disability Quiet Garden.

Special guests, volunteers and service users gathered at the Centre and watched Karen Maw, the Co-operative Stores Engagement Manager for Liverpool, cut the ribbon into the Garden and Gosia McKane, Development and Projects Manager for the Steve Morgan Foundation, mark their award by presenting a plaque and cheque to Centre Manager Su Carson.

Gosia said; “The Trustees recognised the fantastic resource that the Bridge Community Centre is in the Clubmoor area.

“The ‘can do’ attitude of the volunteers and the involvement of the local community means that this is a charity that is changing lives and making a difference.”

Su Carson, Centre Manager, added: “This is a special and memorable day for all involved.

“It’s such a boost to have the belief and backing of the Steve Morgan Foundation and their financial support will help us achieve so much more in the years to come.

“With the help of the Foundation we can become more sustainable and offer so much more for our lovely community.

“It was great to meet Gosia and for her to see at first hand the difference and the impact that we as volunteers are making for our most vulnerable.

“So a big thank you to everyone connected with the Steve Morgan Foundation.”
