Local charity in Boston receives Asda Foundation 30th birthday funding

Asda Boston community champion Stephen Bromby

Our Boston community champion Stephen Bromby presented a cheque for more than £27,000 to Liz Hopkins, CEO at Centrepoint Outreach.

The charity, which runs a drop-in centre and charity shop, has been helping homeless and vulnerable people in their local area for 27 years – almost as long as Asda Foundation has been going.

They will use the donation to replace the 15-year-old van they use to deliver donations of furniture to people setting up home after moving out of homeless hostels and refuge shelters.

Stephen said: "Centrepoint do a fantastic job in the local community and I was honoured and delighted to present them with the cheque.

"It’s important they can carry on doing the work they do and I know they’ll put the van to good use, helping to transform an empty shell into a home."

The Asda Foundation have also given the charity a £600 grant for a Christmas buffet at the drop-in centre so that homeless, lonely and isolated people in the community can enjoy a festive celebration.
