Half-term hampers distributed to 300 families


CHARITY group Torus Foundation, with the help of  Warrington Wolves Foundation, Saints Community Development Foundation and construction company HMS, has distributed 300 half term hampers to families,
As the charitable arm of growth and regeneration group, Torus, the foundation works to improve the wellbeing, skills and overall quality of life of the people living in their heartlands – Warrington, St Helens and Liverpool.
During a usual half term holiday, Torus Foundation would ordinarily be welcoming young people from Torus families to their school holiday camps and community activities. However, this half term they have mixed things up to make sure that many children age 5-12 from Torus families are kept fuelled and entertained throughout the break, while sticking to Covid-19 restrictions.
The half term hampers comprised of breakfast and lunch supplies, including essentials like milk, cheese and pasta, and sweet treats like fruit and cake. Games were also included, to help keep their young minds active too while soft-play centres are currently closed.
Torus Foundation health and wellbeing manager, Alan Feenan said: “As part of the Torus Group, Torus Foundation is in a great position to know who in our communities may benefit from a helping hand during school holidays, whether it’s parents working from home or those kids who really miss hanging out with their friends during the school break.
“I’d like to give a huge thank you to each of the partners who have contributed to the delivery of these half term hampers benefitting our Torus families. Here’s to more collaboration that enhances the Foundation’s aim for stronger communities.”
Warrington Wolves Foundation sport and lifestyle manager, James Howes said: “It was great to see some regular faces while distributing the bags in our Warrington neighbourhoods and seeing the kids excited to receive their bags. Another great project working alongside Torus Foundation.”
Since the coronavirus crisis first hit in March of this year, Torus Foundation has distributed 1875 food parcels, hosted 466 activities and online sessions for young people and provided £94,462 in funding grants to organisations and charities helping people to live well through the pandemic.
