MyCSP donates £200 to local Anchor Boys club
19 Oct 2016
Liverpool-based pension services provider MyCSP has donated £200 to a local Anchor Boys club.
The donation was made through the MyCSP Community Fund after MyCSP employee partner Laura Roach applied for the donation on behalf of the Club, which her six year old son attends.
The Anchor Section of the 31st Liverpool Boys Brigade operates at Holy Trinity in Wavertree, Liverpool and runs a programme based on five areas: body, mind, spirit, community and creativity. The emphasis is on fun and the club has a broad programme of activities including games, crafts and storytelling as well as opportunities to learn and share in new experiences. Children are awarded much prized badges as recognition for their participation in the programme.
Other than a minimal annual fee of just £15, the club relies on charitable donations as well as dedicated volunteers who run the groups. If any parent has financial difficulties, the club always ensures that no child misses out.
Laura Roach from MyCSP said: “Anchor Boys is a fantastic club run solely by volunteers from the local community. It encourages the boys to socialise, keep fit, and learn new skills. All donations are greatly appreciated and we’re all extremely grateful for the donation from MyCSP.”
Helen Forster, who volunteers at the club said: “It’s a real bonus to have been given this donation, which we’ll use to get some much-needed equipment to use in activities with the boys.”
David Boardman, Communications Director said, “At MyCSP we’re committed to helping the local community and are always keen to hear about local causes and activities that our employee partners are involved in and where we may be able to offer a helping hand. The Anchor Boys is clearly enormous fun and we are delighted to be supporting them.”Back to news
