Taylor Swift has left a legacy of her sold-out shows in Liverpool which will help vulnerable people across our city.

The star, who played three nights at Anfield as part of her Eras Tour, has spoken of the impact Liverpool made on her, but her own impact on the city is set to be felt by people who need help the most. The St Andrew's Community Network, which helps provide 11 foodbanks and eight community food pantries across north Liverpool, has been given a "generous donation" by Taylor.

While some may feel stars only help charities for positive publicity, it was not Taylor or her PR team who announced the gesture - but Rich Jones, the community network's chief executive. The Clubmoor-based network says the donation will make a "huge difference" to the thousands of people it helps.

One of the network's fundraisers, Charlotte, said: ‘We can’t thank Taylor enough."

She added: "So many people are struggling at the moment and need for all our services has sadly increased over the last few years, so to have someone like Taylor supporting our endeavours and choosing to help people in crisis in Liverpool means so much and will make a massive difference."

The charity supports around 36,000 people every year across their network of foodbanks and community food spaces, and many hundreds more through debt and welfare benefits advice in their mission to set people free from poverty.

Taylor is currently gearing up for the remaining UK dates on her Eras Tour, taking in three nights at Wembley from Friday before moving on to Dublin's Aviva Stadium next week.

Her shows at Anfield were among the biggest gigs the city has hosted in its history, and among those to benefit from Taylor's generosity during the tour dates was Savannah Wright, who during the second gig at Anfield received the 22 hat Taylor gives out to a young fan every night.

In a video that has been shared thousands of times on social media since, Taylor came up to Savannah, gave her a hug and handed her the hat.

Savannah's cousin Danielle told the ECHO: “I remember her telling our Sav that she had beautiful eyes.

“Her taking the time to speak to her was amazing. Sav will always remember that. She is a big artist but by actually speaking to her, she’s created a lifetime memory."
