The ‘Help Campaign” has five key messages, safety, supporting Liverpool’s hospitality and retail sectors by eating and shopping locally, making use of delivery services where available to help support businesses in the city, keeping in contact with friends and neighbours, and asking for support.
“Liverpool has a rich history of coming together to triumph in the face of adversity,” Liverpool One marketing and communications director Donna Howitt said.
“Its strength of character has carried it through difficult times before and is the key to ensuring the city once again thrives.
“At the heart of its character are the people of the Liverpool City Region. Now more than ever they need to unite to see one another through to better times.”
Liverpool BID chief executive Bill Addy said: “Liverpool has that real community feel and now is the time, more than ever, to really let this community love and spirit shine through. We all need to help each other to help the Liverpool City Region.”
