Twelve Days of Christmas - thank you

#12DaysofChristmas

Last year, Croxteth Gems told Stephen about their project to help 100 struggling families this Christmas. He was determined to help.

He asked party members, trade unions, community groups and businesses - the response was amazing. Over weeks, people came to the office dropping in Christmas trees, decorations, advent calendars, gifts, food and money. 

Trade unions ran collections, of money, gifts, trees and advent calendars, and some local businesses reached out to help.

Stephen said: "I was not surprised by the generosity shown by our members and friends in the Trade Union movement, as supporting the most vulnerable is what we are all here for.

"Thank you to all of the members who donated their Christmas decorations, trees and advent calendars. Over the last few weeks, people have been coming into the office every day with gifts for these families.

"Thank you to everyone who has helped make this Christmas special for these families."
