Members of Lichfield District Safer Community Partnership donated festive food to make up five Christmas hampers for local families.
Lichfield District Safer Community Partnership is made up of more than 20 organisations, including Lichfield District Council, the police, the fire service, Victim Support, Bromford and more, who work together to tackle crime and promote community safety.
Towards the end of 2017, the partnership decided to help five families who live in Lichfield District, who are on low incomes, to give them a Christmas treat.
They asked staff members in the partnership for donations of food that would help towards making a Christmas dinner, including vegetables, meat and pudding.
Lots of food was collected to put in the five hampers, which were handed out in time for Christmas.
Yvonne James, Community Safety Officer for Lichfield District Council, said:
“I am really proud that we worked together to help five local families this Christmas. It shows how passionate we are in our roles and how well we all pull together for things like this. The partner organisations work together all year to improve the lives and help the people of Lichfield District and Christmas time is no exception. We hope the five families enjoyed their hampers and had a fantastic Christmas.”
The hampers were provided by partnership staff from Victim Support, Lichfield District Council, Bromford, Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service, Staffordshire Police, Community Mental health Services, Family Intervention Project, TalentMatch, Staffordshire County Council and Social Services.
