A GROUP of walkers put their best feet forward to raise £1,445 for the Plaza Cinema during a trek from Liverpool city centre to Southport!
The event was organised by Crosby Housing Association (CHA), who wanted to show support for their local community cinema and, at the same time, show off the CHA’s living accommodation in south Sefton.
The housing firm got help in their fundraising effort from Bootle MP Peter Dowd, as well as Ashley & McDonough, Penny Lane Builders, Premier Cleaning and Transport Services, Imagine Independence and Cllr Paulette Lapin.
Peter Dowd MP, said: “It was great to catch up with staff and trustees from Crosby Housing Association showing their support for the Plaza Cinema in Waterloo. It showed CHA’s commitment not just to its tenants but also to a crucial community facility and hub which needs our support.”
Cllr Paulette Lapin, added: “It was a privilege to support the Plaza by working with Crosby Housing. Walking across south Sefton and seeing the excellent living accommodation offered to their residents left me feeling proud and privileged to walk the walk”
So far, the walk has raised £1,445, but they are aiming to raise even more with support from the public. Mandy Elliott, Chief Executive at CHA said: “We will keep the Go Fund Me page open for a couple of weeks to make sure as many people as possible have the opportunity to donate.
“Our thanks go out to everyone who supported us. We couldn’t have done it without you and we know the Plaza is heartened by the effort of its community partners”
