Pine Court Housing Association show support for L8 community with £2k food donation

June 2, 2020

Pine Court Housing Association, part of The Sovini Group, recently donated over £2k worth of food and essential supplies to local charitable organisation, The Florrie.

In an effort to tackle food poverty in the L8 community, Pine Court Housing Association teamed up with The Florrie to provide much needed food and essential supplies to local residents.

Established in 1889, The Florence Institute for Boys (better known as The Florrie) operates as a social and educational hub for the people of south Liverpool. In response to COVID-19 The Florrie have been delivering hot food, food hampers and hygiene supplies to members of the L8 community.

As members of Black Minority Ethnic (BME) National, Pine Court Housing Association is the leading social housing provider for the Chinese community in Merseyside and in addition to food donations their bi-lingual staff have been keeping in regular contact with over 25% of customers who are elderly and vulnerable to ensure they are sufficiently supported.

Anne Lundon, Chief Executive Officer of The Florence Institute for Boys, said:

We would like to thank Pine Court Housing Association for their generous donation of food and supplies to The Florrie. We rely on donations like this to help deliver essential services to the L8 community and we appreciate Pine Court’s continued support.

Director of Pine Court Housing Association, David Brown, said:

Pine Court Housing Association is committed to creating inclusive and diverse communities, and now more than ever it’s important we pull together to support those who are most vulnerable. I would like to thank The Florrie for their hard work and dedication to serving the L8 community especially during these difficult times. Their contribution to the area is invaluable.
