Customer service centre staff collected hundreds of essential items of food and warm clothing for the organisations, which both rely on donations to provide support to local people in crisis.
Feeding more than 5,000 residents over the last year, the Hull Foodbank offers support to local people in emergency situations. Meanwhile, the Holy Trinity Church operates a ‘soup run’ twice a week to take hot drinks, snacks and clothing to people sleeping rough on the streets of Hull.
Earlier this week, Sanctuary staff made their deliveries of Christmas goods to both organisations, where they took some time to meet and chat to volunteers and clients.
Stuart Smith, Sanctuary’s area manager for Hull, said: “The staff from the customer service centre have been incredibly generous, gathering together a range of vital items for two invaluable local services.
“Christmas is a time when we should be thinking of others and these donations embody what the festive season is really all about.”
