Travellers donate £200 worth of food to Bromsgrove's Basement Project to help homeless

A GROUP of travellers bought £200 worth of groceries from Bromsgrove’s Asda to donate to the Basement Project to help those who are homeless or facing homelessness over the festive season.

Staff and volunteers from the charity have been sorting through the items and large amounts of other generous donations from residents and community organisations.

The charity is busy producing as many Christmas parcels as possible for those in need across North Worcestershire.

Basement CEO Jackie Hooper said: “Every year local individuals, churches, schools and other organisations respond extremely generously to our request for food donations so we can bring a little bit of cheer at this time of the year to young people in the area who are perhaps not as fortunate as others.”

She also thanked Sainsbury’s and Asda which both have donation points.

As well as food, people have also donated toiletries and toys for the children of some of The Basement Project’s clients.

“We remain grateful to everyone who continues to support us and our clients in this way,” added Jackie.

The Basement annually supports more than 200 young people with help and advice, food parcels and training to provide skills for daily living through a programme of workshops.

The charity celebrated its 20th anniversary this year.
