On March 23rd the unprecedented events of the Pandemic sent the whole country into meltdown as we entered Lockdown and the scenes of panic buying will forever be etched within our memories. Fear & frenzy sent shudders through Communities already living in deprivation & hardship. We knew our support would be needed more than ever before and an emergency meeting was held and contingency plan drawn up. An army of volunteers joined forces to provide a vital service to families, children and older people across the City of Liverpool. Firstly we bought 25 industrial chest freezers and 15 fridges to ensure we had capacity to store frozen & chilled items and we placed orders as far away as Isle of Wight to keep up with demand of goods needed to distribute. 100's of essential parcels were made up each day containing an assortment of fresh, frozen and dried food goods also toiletries and cleaning products to ensure the physical and mental health and well-being of residents.
Take a look at this short video which tells you a little bit about what we do at the Centre!

The L6 Centre were aware of the challenges we faced in delivering a Christmas to remember for the city. However, even with Covid restrictions in place we were able to distribute thousands of toys, pj's and food parcels right across the city. We purchased a sleigh in November 2020 in order to ensure children were able to meet Santa. From the 4th of December to the 21st of December our sleigh went through the streets of Liverpool, ensuring thousands of children met Santa! Santa also visted twelve primary schools in which each child recieved a present. This was a huge sucesss considering we were in a pandemic and we had limited options. We would like to put our thanks on record to the 100's of people and businesses who made Christmas 2020 possible at the L6.
Our Food Union enables residents to shop for branded goods at a very low cost. The Food Union was created after months of consultations with residents and has been a major success the past twelve months. The Food Union stocks branded items and all other essential items i.e. cleaning products, to ensure our members can get their full shop at a fraction of the price. The L6 Food Union staff are keen to support local businesses especially during these difficult times, all of our butcher's meat is locally sourced, we stock freshly baked bread from Home Baked which arrives each morning with all of our fruit and veg being locally sourced. By joining our Food Union you are also supporting many local Liverpool organisations. Please come along and grab yourself a bargain!
