Liverpool store to help the homeless

REX: The Concept Store on Liverpool’s Bold Street has installed a Pay as You Feel Café to support Liverpool Homeless FC.

The team at REX have installed a Pay as You Feel Cafe and Cereal Bar at the front of the store in aid of Liverpool Homeless FC (LHFC).

With tea, coffee and a selection of cereals available to choose from, all that is asked is that you consider a donation to LHFC.

Liverpool Homeless FC has been working away for nearly 10 years, using football as a means of social integration and part of a wider support network to combat the effects
of homelessness.

Having been recognised with both local and national awards from Liverpool Echo and Sky Sports respectively, LHFC continue to grow from strength-to-strength but could always use a helping hand in their quest.

Gary Carney, director at Revolver Retail, the company behind REX, said: “Being based in the city centre, we are all too familiar with the visible effects of homelessness,and how difficult it is for those affected by it to break out of that.

“We have a store in a prime location so it’s only right that we use this opportunity to promote Liverpool Homeless FC, raise their profile and hopefully funds too, so that they can continue to go from strength to strength.”

Cllr Ann O’Byrne, Liverpool’s deputy mayor (pictured with John Finnigan), said: “Liverpool Homeless FC are a fantastic organisation that work in the city to help combat the effects of homelessness.

“Initiatives such as this one help to raise the profile of the organisation as a whole and will hopefully drive it forward so that they can continue their excellent work.”
