Sefton Central Labour MP Bill Esterson again backed Age Concern Crosby's fundraising coffee morning on Saturday.

The MP joined hundreds of Age Concern Crosby supporters at the Haigh Road Day Centre for the annual event.

Bill said he was delighted to support a charitable organisation that looks after local people.

Bill said: "Age Concern Crosby does fantastic work in our community. They provide support and care for people here in our community who need it.

"Elderly people here in Crosby, Blundellsands, Brighton-le-Sands, Hightown, Thornton, Maghull and Lydiate, as well as Waterloo, Seaforth, Litherland and Bootle have access to the excellent services that Age Concerns Crosby offers.

"I was delighted to meet members of the committee on Saturday at their coffee morning fundraiser as well as some of the people who benefit from the services Age Concern Crosby provide.

"I urge anyone with any spare time to contact the centre and get involved."

As well as getting the chance to enjoy a coffee, Bill and the other visitors had the chance to pick up a bargain from one of the charity stalls, and even back some new local businesses who were selling their wares at the popular event.

Fledgling local businesses at this year's Age Concern Crosby coffee morning included: Josie Morris who has launched her handmade chocolate business Chocolate By Josie; handmade soap maker and skincare specialist Steph Leach from Green Bubble; designer Lauren Burke; and aptly for a coffee morning Crosby Coffee who ship, roast and blend coffee from around the world.

Bill said: "What's also great about the Age Concern Crosby coffee morning is the fact that it has become a platform for local entrepreneurs to set up stall and sell the products, while supporting such a worthwhile local charity.

"The new start-ups I met this morning show the talent and entrepreneurial flare that we have here in and around Crosby. So I was able to take home locally produced handmade chocolate, handmade soap, handmade greetings cards and even locally blended coffee.

"I'm already looking forward to next time."

Age Concern Crosby's next fundraising event will be a Strawberry Tea on Saturday, July 5 from 2pm-4pm at the Waterloo Park Day Centre, 8 Haigh Road, Waterloo.
