Carra rescue for trashed food charity; NEWS WIRE.
A FOODBANK charity that was ransacked and left with several hundreds of pounds of damage is getting a priceless bail-out - by Jamie Carragher's 23 Foundation.
In recent days, the ECHO reported how The Big Help Project, in Litherland, was targeted by thieves who broke into one of its fundraising stores.
One of the organisation's charity shops, in Carr Meadow Hey, was completely trashed following the break-in, during which PS50 was stolen, but with up to PS700 of damage.
Now, after reading about the crime in the ECHO, the ex-Liverpool legend's charity has agreed to step in and pay for the clear-up.
Jamie is from Bootle, just a short distance from where the raided shop is based.
Burglars forced their way in and stole the till and some groceries before deciding to wreck the inside of the Sefton charity's branch address.
A spokesman said: "If there's any way we can help, we would be more than happy to do so.
"We read about the break-in in the ECHO, and it made us angry just hearing about it.
"If there's anything we can do to assist, then we're here to help."
Volunteers at the charity think the burglary was carried out by somebody local, as the shop isn't very visible from outside on the street.
