About Leslie's Care Packages
Vi Wood is the face and founder of ‘Leslie's Care Packages’, which has been set up in loving memory of her husband Leslie. Vi wanted to do good work in his name to keep his memory alive.
Initially set up to help the homeless, the non-profit voluntary organisation now helps all groups of vulnerable people right across the Black Country. After seeing so many people in need in the
Stourbridge community, Vi initially put out appeals for help on Facebook, back in August 2016. Since then, LCPs has attracted a big response from generous people across the West Midlands.
The charity’s mission is to provide much needed provisions, such as food, toiletries, sleeping bags, and clothing to homeless and other disadvantaged people. As the organisation receives no
funding, it relies solely on the general public and local businesses for support and donations.
