The Big Help Project

16th March, 2020

Our Dock tenants are collaborating with The Big Help Project to make sure that people who’re already vulnerable don’t suffer even more at this difficult time. The media has been reporting how desperate food banks are for food donations, so a number of our tenants are working together to help those most in need.

The Big Help Project has a driver collecting daily from the Dock, and can take chilled, frozen and ambient goods for distribution via Knowsley Food Bank. Holiday Inn Express is coordinating donations from the Albert Dock, and will be calling them after breakfast each morning with a list of what we can give to them.

Dock tenants who’re already involved are Holiday Inn Express, Clockwise, PanAm and Peaberry on the Dock. The Big Help Project has two clear aims: to feed the hungry in Knowsley, and to work with people who are in poverty to help them overcome that poverty and move on to a better future.

Helen Roberts, General Manager at Holiday Inn Express, is coordinating efforts for Dock tenants.

"the past few days have been tough for many industries but it gave us great pleasure earlier this week to start working with The Big Help Project knowing that as a hotel we could be helping and supporting our local community when they need us most."
