Jordans Solicitors have donated food to food banks in Dewsbury and Wakefield.
As we all know, Christmas is an expensive time of year. The majority of us are lucky enough to have a happy, healthy Christmas with friends and family, with a warm home and enough food to satisfy us.
Unfortunately however, as is clear from recent news reports, there are many in our community who are less fortunate than most of us and find themselves without sufficient food to sustain them over the festive period.
As such, this year, Jordans Solicitors decided to support 2 local food banks in order to help those in need in our community this Christmas.
Fusion Housing and Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing have joined together to create food bank ‘The Pantry’ to help struggling families in the area. They provide food packs for individuals and have seen food packs for 9 people families go out in recent times, as wells as toiletry packs and baby packs.
Staff at the Jordans Solicitors Dewsbury office donated 3 boxes of food to Fusion Kirklees.
More information about Fusion Kirklees and details about how you can help can be found here.
St Catherine’s Church and Centre:
St Catherine’s provides one of the largest food banks locally. Gemma Bean of Jordans Solicitors met with Jonathan of St Catherine’s, who said they have provided approximately 75,000 meals in the past year.
Staff at the Jordans Solicitors Wakefield office donated 4 boxes of food to St Catherine’s.
More information about St Catherine’s and details about how you can help them can be found here.
Whilst it is disappointing that there are families struggling during this festive period, we are proud of all of our staff for donating to these worthy causes, and commend both Fusion Kirklees and St Catherine’s for the great work they are doing to help.
If you would like to help either of these organisations with extra donations, their contact details can be found on their websites.
We wish all our readers a very Merry Christmas.
