With food banks facing soaring demand for their services over the festive period, a York company is doing its bit to help.
Property developer S Harrison has donated a wide range of kitchen staples to a charity in the city.
The company’s donations, which range from tinned meats and biscuits through to Christmas puddings and tinned fruit, will help the most disadvantaged in York.
S Harrison’s Gavin Douglas reunited with the team at Tesco Clifton Moor, led by Fran Lonsdale, to provide essential supplies, along with Christmas treats donated by the store, to Adam Raffell and his team at the Trussell Trust affiliated York Foodbank.
And the company is continuing to support SASH, which works to prevent homelessness amongst young people.
Ann Scott, from S Harrison, said: “It’s no secret that lots of people are facing hardship right now for all types of reasons and if these donations can help to make life a little easier over the festive season, then they will be well worth it, and we hope it could also inspire others to support local food banks.”
In York, S Harrison is currently working on a 303-bedroom student scheme on James Street, which will complete in time for the 2025 student intake year.
