Sovini Trade Supplies (STS), part of The Sovini Group, delivered £15,000 worth of food and toiletries to families in need in Merseyside over the Christmas period.
Working alongside its partners One Vision Housing (OVH) and Sefton4Good – an initiative from Sefton CVS supporting over 100 charities across the borough – staff helped to deliver the hampers to various local community groups. The packages consisted of Christmas food, toiletries, toys and much more.
STS also donated 16 hampers full of baby products and toiletries – including baby milk – to Bootle Health Centre. Bootle business Carroll Group also donated bikes to the campaign, which were given to families who utilise Netherton Park Community Centre in Sefton.
Debbie Porter, Family Support Worker at Netherton Park Community Centre, said: “It was incredibly kind of STS, OVH and Carroll Group to donate these hampers and bikes. This means the world to the people who use our services and we are so grateful for the gesture. We hope to continue working closely with these businesses in the New Year.”
Anita Harrison-Carroll, Director of Sovini Trade Supplies, said: “Social good is at the heart of what we do, and when we were approached by OVH to help stock and deliver these packages, we jumped at the chance.
“We have a responsibility as a local business to give back to our community, and we hope that we have helped make Christmas a little bit more special for local families.”
Sovini Trade Supplies is unlike most businesses of its kind, with all elements of the business, from sourcing and purchasing, to supplying and serving, centred on the desire to do social good. Capacity generated by the company is reinvested in the group’s non-profit social housing partners, supporting investment in new homes and developing the local communities.
Sovini Group partners include One Vision Housing, Pine Court Housing Association, Sovini Property Services and Sovini Homes.
