This year Myerson organised a collection for the Wood Street Mission. This is a Manchester based charity that help children and families affected by poverty. All the families they support live in the Manchester and Salford area. Many of them are supported by this charity long term as they do not have the life skills or support to enable them to change their circumstances. Others, are families who just need a bit of help temporarily because they have fallen on hard times. For example, some may have escaped situations of domestic violence, or suffered a house fire. We were really pleased to be able to help such a worthwhile charity.
In 2017 chose to support the Barnabus homeless appeal for the third year running.
Barnabus are a homeless charity based in Manchester which started 25 years ago with just one man walking the streets, giving out food and drink to the homeless.
They now offer a lifeline to hundreds of visiting homeless and vulnerable people each week, many of whom have severe addictions or mental health issues.
