‘Soup-er’ support for Stick 'n' Step from Divine Saviour Parish
10 May 2022
Three churches in the Divine Saviour Parish, working with Runcorn Shopping City, have been supporting cerebral palsy charity Stick ‘n’ Step. For six weeks the churches have been hosting soup lunches in Runcorn Shopping City, raising over £750 for Stick ‘’n Step.
This initiative is one element of Runcorn Shopping City’s 50th anniversary celebrations, being just one of the 50 good deeds the organisation plans to carry out throughout this year.
Rhianna McDermott, Community Fundraiser at Stick ‘n’ Step, says:
“As per usual, we are absolutely bowled over by the generosity of our lovely local community. We are so grateful to Runcorn Shopping City for their ongoing support, and we really appreciate the efforts of Divine Saviour Parish’s community in helping to raise this wonderful sum of money”.
“The money raised will go directly to support the young people who attend weekly conductive education classes at Stick ‘n’ Step and their families. These include Isaac, age 4, from Liverpool, whose grandparents play an active role in the Divine Saviour Parish.”
Dave Pearman, Centre Manager at Runcorn Shopping City, said:
“We turn 50 this year and we want to mark the occasion by doing 50 good deeds. Supporting the local community is hugely important to all of us at the shopping centre and we were delighted to help out Divine Saviour Parish and help raise funds for Stick ‘n’ Step with the series of delicious soup lunches. We look forward to many more fund-raising activities as well as celebrating our 50th birthday extravaganza on 7th May.”
