  • Shaftesbury Youth Club – Food parcel delivery

    On what has to be one of the coldest days in recent years, Steve Loughran, Kimpton Site Supervisor, volunteered to deliver food parcels for the Shaftesbury Youth Club – Known as Shaftes to locals.

    Shaftes have handed out over 1,000 food hampers in the last five days including 17 schools around the Wirral area who nominate families with children. His work also took him to Park Primary School in Wallasey to hand out over 100 hampers to more families who are struggling in the current climate.

    Even with this work done, Steve then went to 27 individual houses to hand-deliver further food parcels to families with no transport or who were having to shield. The final 30 or so hampers were returned to Shaftes for distribution around the Prenton area to the elderly and housebound, who they also provide for.

    Established in 1886, Shaftesbury Youth Club is one of the oldest clubs of its kind in the UK.

    According to the Wirral Globe, During the school holidays, Shaftes undertook to store, allocate, pack and distribute 6,000 food parcels destined for 1,200 homes, as part of the free school meals project, now promoted by Manchester United star Marcus Rashford.

    Barry Eaton, Chair of Shaftesbury Youth Club, said, “I am immensely proud of the work carried out over the Christmas period by staff and volunteers alike in providing over 6,000 food hampers to deserving families in conjunction with local and national agencies.”

    And as a business, Kimpton are delighted to be able to help them in their amazing work.

    Whilst everyone in the UK has been affected by the Covid crisis, it has brought the best out in some people. Steve is one of those real hidden heroes of the Covid era. If he sees people needing help, he’s one of the first to volunteer.
