What do we do?

BTWG has organised a food hamper project starting with the six week summer holidays 2020 and every school holiday since.  This has been possible with financial support from each of the named churches, Edsentials, Steven Morgan Foundation and Wirral Borough Council.  The charity is run by volunteers who order the food, do the packing and delivering, and prepare crafts and activities for the children.

BTWG usually provides meals at each church venue, during the school holidays but due to the Covid 19 pandemic, we are providing food hampers.  The head teacher of each primary school nominates a child/family to receive the food hamper.

The named churches joined together following an initiative started originally by St. Joseph’s and St. Alban’s Churches who started a breakfast/lunch club during the school holidays.  The other churches followed and over time developed a lunch time meal scheduled over the week at each church venue.  Churches provided hot meals and desserts, activities for the children and on leaving the family received a picnic meal for later in the day.  It is hoped to return to this model when safe to do so.
