Alivia helps Bromsgrove's Basement Project after seeing London's homeless

A KIND-HEARTED girl donated two boxes of food to the Basement Project after collecting items from friends, family and school.

Alivia Faulkner, who attends St John’s Middle School, also provided a box of thermal flasks.

The ten-year-old was inspired to help by a family trip to London where she was saddened to see so many homeless people on the streets.

With her pocket money she brought a multi-pack of crisps, a bag of oranges and some chocolates and distributed them to people living on the streets.

When she returned to Bromsgrove she wanted to do more to help those in need here so she started collecting items, along with thermo-cups so people could keep hot drinks warmer for longer.

Proud dad Russell said his daughter was an inspiration.

“Alivia is very keen to help drive people to keep donating and not just during the festive season.”

Jackie Hooper from the Basement Project said: “It was a lovely donation and it is fantastic someone so young has been thinking about the homeless at this time of year and wants to do something to help them.”
