HOPE Community Services would like to thank Sandra Jackson at Wilko head office and her team for collecting essential food items and toiletries for HOPE. Items donated included; tinned soup, pasta, chocolate, body wash/shower gel, beans, biscuits and much much more.
The food that has been donated will be used to make meals for those who HOPE supports in its Emergency Accommodation Hostel. HOPE has also three supported accommodation properties, where individuals eventually move in to, when they’re ready to take the next step back towards independence. The food will also be used to create food parcels for these individuals.
Development Worker Emma said “This time of year is hard, and with recent reforms and cuts to benefits we are seeing more demand for our services. The food donated by Wilko is amazing, and will be a massive help to us and our homeless hostel”.
