Lord Mayor’s Charity Appeal
Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Cllr Mary Rasmussen, looks forward to raising essential funds for these important charities and help raise the profile of all the excellent work they do:
I will be sponsoring three charities during my year as Lord Mayor. They are Tom Harrison House, The Whitechapel Centre and STEC (Speke Training & Education Centre).
I am hoping to raise a lot of money for my charities this year to shine a spotlight on the excellent work they do.

Thank you for your support.

Tom Harrison House
Tom Harrison House is a specialist facility based in Anfield, Liverpool, where the team provide an addiction recovery programme tailored exclusively to military veterans, reservists, emergency personnel and their families.
The service provides supported accommodation for the duration of treatment and beyond, working in partnership with other agencies to provide ongoing, trauma-informed rehabilitation through an abstinence-based model of care, support, therapy and education.
The primary programme at Tom Harrison House runs over a 12-week period and includes a diverse range of recovery-focused activities and therapeutic groups, as well as individual sessions and family work.
Tom Harrison House provides a safe, responsive, and specialist service, led by a unique team of staff who bring heart and integrity to impact the lives of those military veterans affected by addiction. Together we will overcome the constraints of dependency and create purposeful, fulfilled, powerful lives.
