WARRINGTON Youth Club’s Christmas Hamper Appeal has accelerated thanks to a generous donation of food and drink from Car dealership group, Rybrook Jaguar, to support deserving families throughout the town.
The Christmas Hamper Appeal, now in its 7th year, sees Warrington Youth Club collect non-perishable food and drink donations from local businesses and individuals. Volunteers then use the donations to put together over 100 hampers, which are distributed to families in the local area.
The Hamper Appeal is part of a wider Christmas campaign organised by Warrington Youth Club which also includes a Christmas Meal which will be held next Thursday, December 20.
This special event provides a memorable experience for over 100 deserving families during the festive period. The day is packed with treats and surprises, with each family receiving a 3-course Christmas dinner, entertainment, a family food hamper and presents for children from Santa Claus.
Warrington Youth Club currently welcomes over 3,500 members to its three sites throughout Warrington, however that number is expected to rise to 7,000 with the development of the new Warrington Youth Zone, set to open in 2021.
Vicky Hewitt, Rybrook, said “We heard about the fantastic work being carried out by Warrington Youth Club and we felt compelled to support this amazing project. We’d like to say a huge thank you to Rybrook Jaguar customers and staff for supporting this worthwhile initiative, we know it will make a huge difference to lots of families over the festive period.”
Dave McNichol, Chief Executive of Warrington Youth Club said: “As a charity, hosting this event is only possible through the donations we receive. We are very fortunate to work with such generous businesses, such as Rybrook Jaguar, who are able to donate to the Christmas Hamper Appeal. It is thanks to their support that we will be donating over 100 food hampers over the Christmas period, a much-welcomed gift for many families.”
