Proceeds from Group’s annual golf day aiding LHFC's Back Kitchen project
The golf day, which featured Everton and LFC legends including Graeme Sharp and Roy Evans, raised £5,000 for Liverpool Homeless Football Club back in September, as part of the Merseyside-based housing Group’s ongoing partnership with the charity.
The money raised is being used to support The Back Kitchen - a catering pod run and managed by Liverpool Homeless Football Club.
The pod is being used as a training aid where people from vulnerable backgrounds can learn essential catering and customer service skills and gain qualifications to enable them to work in the catering industry.
The donation has provided new equipment for the project and will help participants work towards their Level 1 and 2 Food Safety and Hygiene Certificate.
Liverpool Homeless Football Club CEO John Finnigan said: “The Back Kitchen Project is helping people affected by homelessness build their confidence and self-esteem and find a route into employment. The continued support from The Sovini Group has been invaluable to us and will help us develop The Back Kitchen project. The funding is essential to ensure that as many people can benefit from this opportunity.”
The Sovini Group CEO Roy Williams said: “Last year’s golf day proved a great success and we’re delighted that the money we raised is helping vulnerable people into employment. The Back Kitchen is exactly the kind of project we want to support and we hope it can make a meaningful difference to people’s lives.”
