Charity gets funding boost

by Tom Martin (April 2021)

A CHARITY based in south Sefton which supports lonely people and young adults with disabilities has received a grant worth £187,841.

The Orrell Trust, based at St John & St James Church & Community Centre in Bootle, has been awarded the funding, to be spread over three years, by The National Lottery Reaching Communities Fund.

The grant means security for the group’s projects that combat social isolation and loneliness in older people, and for The Jolly Soap Opera Mob, a much-loved social group for disabled young adults.
