A WIRRAL assistant head teacher will be providing packed lunches for more than 40 children across the borough this summer.

Louisa Blake has been teaching for 25 years and began ‘Looby Lou’s Lovely Lunches’ after noticing some children’s behaviour changed before the holidays due to the fact they may not have a regular meal each day.

She then focused her attention on providing packed lunches five days a week for around 30 to 50 children in need across the borough.

The lunches will be provided from Monday to Friday for six weeks and will be available from St James Centre in Birkenhead.

Owner of Soccer School Anthony Sheehan donated £500 to the project after sharing the same values of supporting children and having an understanding of their health and physical needs.

Anthony said: “We run a number of soccer clubs both after school and during the holidays.

“We coach children aged three and above and we have delivered soccer training courses in many schools across Wirral.

“I always ensure that children of all abilities can engage in the game and enjoy a sport with their friends.”

The Looby Lou’s Facebook page has attracted my volunteers who have been donating items such as crisps, biscuits and drinks.

After 12 hours of the Justgiving page going live, Louisa received more than £150 in donations.

Louisa said: “It is an honour to have Anthony’s support.

“His donation means that we can double the amount of lunches to 60 to 100 a day, which will make even more of a difference than we first thought.”
