GREEN space located at homeless charity Emmaus Merseyside in Seaforth have been given a spring spruce-up by a team of volunteers.

On Earth Day 2022 – Friday 22 April – nine staff members from Warrington-based Flex Ltd volunteered to help at Emmaus Merseyside’s community garden and adjacent public space, Seaforth Green.

Emmaus Merseyside is an award-winning charity that provides a home, training, work opportunities and individual support to people who have experienced homelessness.

Flex volunteers worked alongside formerly homeless people supported by Emmaus Merseyside and volunteers of the charity to tend to green spaces, propagate and plant flowers.

Rachael Fairclough, HR Director at Flex, said: “We were delighted to support Emmaus and we look forward to continuing our relationship with such a worthy charity.”

Marc Bamber, Chief Operating Officer at Emmaus Merseyside, said: “It was great to welcome the Flex team to our community on what was a lovely sunny day in Seaforth. Their volunteer day at Emmaus Merseyside helped us achieve lots in our surrounding environment and we can't wait to see the spaces bloom over the coming months. Sincere thanks to Flex for this fantastic support.”
