Foodbank donation

Kind hearted staff at Huddersfield-based housing group, Sadeh Lok, have pulled out all the stops to donate five big boxes of food and toiletries to a local foodbank charity.

The Christmas delivery was welcomed by staff and volunteers at the Welcome Centre foodbank this week as more and more families and individuals look for help to make ends meet.

The centre has been giving out over 200 packs of food a week to households in South Kirklees.

Hussain Brook, Head of Sadeh Lok – part of the Incommunities Group – said: “I would like to thank staff who have given so generously to help those in real need.

“These donations will support the invaluable work of everyone at the Welcome Centre at a time when demand is at its highest. Hopefully our contribution will bring some comfort to those households who have no other choice but to turn to this lifeline. ”

Emma Greenough, Marketing and Fundraising Worker at the Welcome Centre, said: “With demand on our services rising more and more, we rely on the support of businesses, communities and the public.

“Everyone at the Welcome Centre appreciates the fantastic donations made by Sadeh Lok. Your contribution will really make a real difference to our clients – thank you.”

In addition to giving the food items, earlier this month Sadeh Lok made a £500 donation to the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice in Huddersfield.
