Store’s cafe helps homeless

 

A Bold Street store is helping to combat homelessness in the city.

REX: The Concept Store have long been supporters of the excellent work that John Finnigan and the team at Liverpool Homeless FC have undertaken to
and now they are doing their bit to try and spread the word a little further.

At the front of their Bold Street store, the team at REX have installed a Pay as You Feel Cafe and Cereal Bar 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 have 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 sai:;”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.”Rex cafe

Councillor Ann O’Byrne, Liverpool’s Deputy Mayor, |(pictured with John Finnigan) who is a supporter and advocate of the work undertaken by LHFC 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”

REX is open 10am – 7pm Mon to Sat, 11am – 5pm on Sundays
