The most important meal of the day just got a lot more important.
Happy Big Boss Brekkie Week! Not sure what that is? Well from the 20th-26th of this month we’ve teamed up with Whitechapel Centre to raise vital funds to help end homelessness. How do you do it? By eating a big, lovely brekkie. No, honest. At home, at work, in your shed, wherever you’d like, cook up some breakfast for friends and family and ask them to put their hands into the pocket at the end of it and donate the money made to The Whitechapel. It’s that simple. So many of you have took part all ready and it’s now time for us to get involved in the campaign. On Thursday 23rd June, ourselves and Dave Critchley, local Head Chef and AA rosette owner of London Carriage Works will be putting on our whites, sharpening our knives and cooking a Full English for the homeless at The Whitechapel Centre.
The Whitechapel Centre is an initiative set up in 1975 to help the homeless. They work with some of the most vulnerable, isolated and lonely people in our community and offer much more than a shoulder to cry on. Just like the MacMillan coffee week but less scones and more sausages. Just £5, the price of a couple coffees a month, pays for a cooked breakfast for 10 rough sleepers. There’s close to half a million people in Merseyside, imagine the effect we could have. Imagine the mouths we could feed, the smiles we could give and the attitudes we could change. As well as that, we will also be getting many of Liverpool’s amazing independents to sign up so when you have breakfast there, a percentage of what you’ve paid will go to Whitechapel. Find all the details here and please rally behind this amazing cause. Also donate directly to The Whitechapel Centre here.
