INS donates £1000 to the Howgill Family Centre Christmas Hamper appeal.
INS has once again supported the Howgill Family Centre Christmas Hamper appeal by donating £1000, enough for 25 hampers.
The Centre aims 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.
Receiving the cheque from INS were members of the family support team, including main fund raiser, Early Help Assistant Tracey Newbold. Tracey said the Centre was very grateful for INS’s continued support adding, “The hampers are filled with fairly staple items of food and a few luxury items; some of the donation from INS also bought a toy for children, who otherwise wouldn’t have got one. INS’s donation bought 25 hampers and will go a long way to helping these families enjoy a better Christmas”.
INS Internal Communications Manager, Jane Foreman said: “As long-standing members of the Cumbrian community, INS is keen to continue to support the area. We really admire the work of the Centre and are very pleased to be able to help such a worthwhile cause”.
