£60k Awarded to Home-Start Southport & Formby

A special guest was warmly welcomed to Home-Start’s weekly Family Group at Canning Road church hall. Parents, children and volunteers of the charity were pleased to meet Ashley Lewis, Trustee of the Steve Morgan Foundation, who came to present a cheque for £60,000 to the charity.

The grant will be used over the next three years to help the work of Home-Start supporting isolated families in Southport.  Ashley Lewis said, “The Trustees are delighted to be able to grant this award to Home-Start. They are really making a difference in the local community and have helped transform the lives of many families.”

Annie Ives, Manager of Home-Start, said, “We are so grateful to the Steve Morgan Foundation for supporting our work. They recognise that family life can be tough, especially when parents are finding it hard to cope with overwhelming problems. It is so important that families get the help they need when they are feeling that day to day life is a struggle. This donation means that we can carry on running our weekly support group for isolated parents and train new volunteers who can visit families at home.”
