Around 100 staff and volunteers from all Compassion Acts projects celebrated with Afternoon Tea at the Waterfront Hotel.

2023 was a big year for the charity, with the team running 20+ projects all around Southport and surrounding areas, including Foodbanks, Food Pantries, Warm Spaces, Uniform Hub, Welfare Benefit and Debt Advice, and more. Compassion Acts is able to help so many people because of the dedication of all the volunteers.

Richard Owens CEO says “What a joyful event this was. We simply have to celebrate our volunteers because without them there would be no projects. The Chair of trustees and several of our Board were present and they remarked to me how inspirational it was. Thank you to MCS Group for the sponsorship and congratulations to all the nominees and runners up and winners in the awards. Can’t wait for next year now!”
