Supporting food banks this Christmas

Every year Yorkshire Water colleagues dig deep to make food bank donations at Christmas to make sure vulnerable people don’t go hungry and this year is no exception.

We are supporting food banks and homeless charities in the Yorkshire and Humber region again this Christmas. Donations of basic food supplies along with Christmas food items have poured in from kind-hearted colleagues of Yorkshire Water and from our sister company, Loop.

Hilary Benn, Member of Parliament for Leeds Central, accompanied Steve Grant from Yorkshire Water to deliver some ‘Christmas cheer’ to St George’s Crypt on Friday 16 December.

St George’s Crypt is a charity in centre of Leeds working with the homeless, the vulnerable and those suffering from addiction. Staff and volunteers at the Crypt offer these vulnerable people the things many of us take for granted; beds, food, washing facilities and clothes. They also offer a caring ear, friendly support, prayer and counselling.

Martin Patterson, Development Director for St George’s Crypt said; "We’re all celebrating at this time of year but Christmas can be a very lonely time for some. Donations of food and just knowing that people care can really make a difference to people who are struggling with life, money and other problems.”

Charities in Brighouse, Pontefract, Knottingley, Huddersfield, Bradford and Knaresborough will also benefit from donations of food.
