Working to make the season brighter
15 December 2017
We’re proud to have worked with The Harrogate Homeless Project again on its annual festive feast for staff and service users, catering for over 100 people.
This is the fifth time we have helped out with this incredible event. As ever, the lunch comprised the full three courses with all the trimmings and we were able to include some gifts as well as sending some CNG-ers to help out on the day.
The event aims to bring some festive cheer and extra support to those that have no permanent home and may be isolated from their families over the Christmas period and is always very well received.
Liz Hancock. CEO from the Harrogate Homeless Project commented: “We are delighted that CNG have once again sponsored the annual Christmas Lunch for homeless and vulnerable people, it was a huge success and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It’s fantastic that we have been able to add a bit of Christmas cheer to people who are in housing crisis and for whom Christmas can be a very difficult time of year. We would like to thank the CNG team for all their hard work, not just at this event, but for the support they offer us throughout the year.
David and Jean represented us on the day, they said: “We work with a number of local organisations, but it is crucial that at this time, when services like this can often reach breaking point, that we do what we can to help. We’re proud to support the work of the HHP and the work it does, not just at Christmas, but year round, to support those facing homelessness. A special thank you once again to the St George Hotel for hosting the event.”
