Starting Over helping the homeless

Sonny and Samantha make the donation of 50 presents to the Whitechapel centre

On Christmas eve Starting Over Enterprises donated 50 Christmas presents of hats and scarves to the homeless through the Whitechapel Centre in Liverpool.

The Whitechapel Centre is the leading homeless and housing charity in Liverpool and do an excellent job in supporting the vulnerable people on our streets. For this reason Starting Over made the donation using funds raised through our Walk and Talk event held for world mental health day.

According to national charity Crisis rough sleeping is a record high levels on Merseyside. The latest data for Merseyside reveals more then three dozen persistent rough sleepers are thought to be on our streets – a rise of 33{1673afc0b79952b29f963b3f3524d6047339e75febd340de3bd0d0d00bc1c19b} on 2015 and the highest number since 2010 when the statistics where first gathered.

Starting Over Enterprises would like to say a big thank you to everybody who took part and sponsored on the fund raising event and helped out with the donation to the Whitechapel centre.
