Most recently, we have found a permanent home for our Liverpool Tapestry – a commemorative tapestry to celebrate Liverpool’s success as the European Capital of Culture in 2008.
The Tapestry is now on display at the South entrance of St George's Hall in Liverpool city centre.
Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust in Liverpool, is one of Europe’s biggest and busiest children’s hospitals providing care for over 200,000 children and young people.
Alder Hey Children’s charity Christmas cards have been sold in Home Bargains stores for the past six years. We run a competition every year for Primary School children to submit their designs for the cards. Last year we raised in excess of £15,000!
The 12 winning designs from this year’s competition will be manufactured and sold in all our stores for Christmas 2014. All profit from the cards will go to the Children’s Hospital, plus the winners each received a £50 Home Bargains voucher for their school!!

We are very excited to announced Home Bargains will be the new shirt sponsor for Tranmere Rovers FC from next season onwards.
Tranmere chairman Peter Johnson told the club’s website: “This is a fantastic deal for the Club and we are thrilled to join forces with such a well-run, successful family company.
“It is a real coup for the Club to have a national company as well-known as Home Bargains as its new shirt sponsor, particularly in these difficult economic times.
“We are both companies who take great pride in supporting our local community and who believe in providing value for money for our customers. This deal gives us the opportunity to work together on community projects in Wirral and beyond.
“We will be proud to wear the Home Bargains logo on our shirts and look forward to a long successful relationship together.”

More than 150 people were involved in creating the Liverpool Tapestry. It features 338 hand-stitched individual panels to make up a triptych, which cumulatively spans over six metres in length. The panels feature iconic images including Superlambananas, the city’s historic buildings, and aspects of Liverpool that have special meaning for the individual embroiderers, who worked with the Merseyside Embroiderers’ Guild to create the finished piece.
We delighted to announce that we have found a permanent home to display the tapestry at St Georges Hall in Liverpool.
