International Nuclear Services, the specialist nuclear transport company, has donated £1,000 to the Howgill Centre Christmas Hamper appeal.
Tracey Newbold, an Early Help Assistant, with Howgill said: “We aim to provide 100 hampers to local families in Copeland, an area recognised as having children aged between 0 and 11 years who are living in poverty.
“The hampers are filled with fairly staple items of food and a few luxury items and cost £30.00 each; the donation from INS will go a long way to helping these families enjoy a better Christmas and we are very grateful to INS for their support”.
INS Internal Communications Manager, Jane Foreman said: “With 60 years of being a part of the Cumbrian community, INS is grateful for its support and we are keen to continue to support the Cumbrian area. We really admire the resources the centre provides and are glad to be able to help such a worthwhile cause”.
