Life can be tough for us all right now, however it’s still nice to give back to those in our local communities who may need some extra support.

Over the Christmas period, our team who support people in the East of Glasgow decided to cancel their annual secret Santa. Instead, they donated to a local homeless initiative.

The Kindness Homeless Street Team provide meals and necessities to those who are experiencing homelessness. Working closely with the charity, we created packs of essential items for those living on the streets of Glasgow.

Some of these items included:

  • Wipes
  • Hand warmers
  • Ponchos
  • Hats & Scarves
  • Deodorant
  • Anti-bacterial gel

Kevin O’Donnel, said: “We chose items that would hopefully make a real difference to people experiencing homelessness. We're proud that our small contribution will go towards supporting the vital work of this important community initiative."
