The Florrie are just shy of hitting their £10,000 GoFundMe target, and need you help to achieve the final hurdle of their goal.
The team behind The Florrie have organised the fundraising appeal on behalf of The Florence Institute Trust Limited, whom for 131 years have proudly served our community and the city of Liverpool.
As a direct result of the Coronavirus the venue has had no option but to temporarily close their doors. Despite this, the team continue to support the most vulnerable in our community through remote classes to help with social isolation and health and wellbeing, as well as support with personal shopping and other essentials.
The Florrie is a community led multi use hub, given people the opportunity to meet new friends, socialise or learn a new skill and The Florrie food-union provides families and individuals with the necessities they so desperately need.
Providing the majority of these services free of charge from the income they receive for corporate events, fundraisers and weddings, all of which are now cancelled or postponed until further notice, leaving the charity without its sustainable income and an uncertain future.
The Florrie means so much to so many, and they won’t go down without a fight and appeal to bring the good times back to people’s lives once the Coronavirus ban is lifted. This will be a time of celebration for us all.
To help The Florrie in her hour of need we ask you to please donate as little or much as you can in order for us to continue supporting the most vulnerable in our community.
