Help Is Here Latest

Help Is Here Latest Spirit of Shankly’s ‘Help is Here’ campaign began back in March, as Covid-19 took hold. As a union, we are aware of the need to help our community in difficult times. We also wanted to act on our AGM commitment of supporting members and fans who are suffering mental ill health and dementia, and those at risk of suicide. We realised then how tough life was becoming for the most robust of us. We could only imagine how hard it must have been for the elderly, those most at risk and [...]

World Suicide Prevention Day

World Suicide Prevention Day Thursday 10 September is World Suicide Prevention Day. Spirit of Shankly are pleased to be working alongside LFC Foundation, Red Neighbours and Spion Kop 1906 in raising awareness of mental health.

On average, 13 people in England take their own life every day - eight of them male. Suicide is the biggest killer among men under [...]

Help Is Here Update

Help Is Here Update Spirit of Shankly’s Help is Here campaign began shortly after the country went into lockdown five months ago as Covid-19 took hold. Over the past 20 weeks, we have provided more than 2,000 bags of food to the most vulnerable members of our community, and those working and risking their own health in the NHS and care homes. In doing this we have spent just short of £30,000. This has come from both union funds and individual donations from members and organisations who have supported our work. We would like to [...]

Help Is Here Video Update

Help Is Here Video Update Spirit of Shankly’s Help is Here campaign was started as a response to the difficulties faced by the most vulnerable during Covid-19. It was clear from the start of lockdown there were a lot of people in our communities without access to food through shielding, self-isolation, illness or hardship. In partnership with Morrisons, SOS began delivering food drops in April, to date we have delivered upwards of 2,200 parcels. We couldn’t have done any of this without the help of others: the taxi drivers, Tony, Frank, Philly and Phil, who make [...]

Message from the Chair

Message from the Chair The COVID-19 virus is hitting the most vulnerable people in our communities hard. In addition to the obvious health-related impact, those without access to food either through self-isolation, in sickness or prevention, or hardship are suffering greatly. I am proud that our union, Spirit of Shankly, has played its part in trying to alleviate some of that suffering by delivering food bags to those most in need across Liverpool and the Wirral. Deliveries made on Monday, 30 March, took the total number of parcels distributed over the past four days to [...]

If any of our members know of family, friends or neighbours who would benefit from a food box being delivered to their door then get in touch. We will arrange the food, in conjunction with Morrisons, [...]
