Mr Cameron paid tribute to the dedication of volunteers and staff at Anfield Breckfield Community Council, adding the project was an "excellent example of the Big Society".

He said: "The long list of brilliant projects ABCC is involved in is testament to the hard work, dedication and creativity of all those involved."

Projects run by the ABCC, which incorporates 14 different community groups, include help with parenting, street cleaning, and men-only cooking sessions.

It also manages its own credit union.
