Fund raiser Clare Greaves has thanked all the staff who donated Christmas hampers to her collection for Age UK.

This year’s collection exceeded her target and resulted in over 120 hampers being donated.

“We have made a real difference this year as both Age UK in Hull and the Cherry Tree Centre, which distributes hampers to the elderly in the East Riding, didn’t have enough hampers to give out at their pensioner Christmas events until we turned up!” said Clare.

She said that thanks to the generosity of staff, everyone on the charities’ lists received a shoebox hamper this year.  Additional items that did not make their way into a hamper were shared between the Silent Kitchen community group, which feeds homeless people, and the Cherry Tree Centre, which also supports families in crisis.
