Kelly Jackson, store manager at Asda Birkenhead, said:

“We wanted to give back to a deserving cause in Birkenhead as a huge thank you for the work they do in the community – and Home-Start Wirral really fits the bill.”

“Everybody loves a party and a slice of cake, and as it’s our 50th birthday we wanted to celebrate with everyone who has helped make Asda what it is over the past 50 years.”

Set up in 1988, the Asda Foundation aims to have a positive impact on local communities, by providing support to a range of local good causes, chosen by Asda community life colleagues across the UK.

Despite recent challenging times, Home-Start Wirral continues to provide much needed support to local families.

Offering crucial support to families going through difficult times since January 2000, Home-Start Wirral started off with their core home visiting family support, growing and diversifying into breastfeeding support, new family support, school readiness projects, along with a whole range of different groups at the ‘Home-Start Hub’.

Home-Start is the largest family support organisation in the UK. From small beginnings, Home-Start Wirral has grown to be one of the largest Home-Starts in the country. 1,253 volunteers have supported 8,171 families and 10,185 children over the last fifteen years.
