Norfolk Christian charity's Christmas hamper gifts
In the lead-up to Christmas Norfolk Christian charity ENYP has been working to distribute thousands of food and toy hampers to vulnerable families.
ENYP has been working with local churches across Norwich, Norfolk and Suffolk, national organisations, supermarkets and suppliers, and has received hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of food and toys donated towards its Christmas Hamper project to support vulnerable groups.
ENYP Director, Rev Danny Doran-Smith, said: “This year we have all seen the devastating impact that Covid-19 has had on thousands of people. Our ‘picnic project’ has been providing regular deliveries of food throughout the year. Over the last few months, we have received thousands of pounds worth of food and toys, donated towards the project which has been such a blessing.
"Christmas is a time of hope and celebration, yet amidst the spirit of the season, we are also aware that it can be a struggle for many children, young people, and families. This year we all expect it to feel different because of the challenges in 2020. However, we are also aware and have seen that in unprecedented times so many households have been impacted further both financially and in their ability to provide food.
"We want to say a big thank you to everyone who has donated (including individual donors) from across the county. Those who have helped us to prepare and pack the hampers, those delivering them, and to all the churches, supermarkets, businesses, restaurants, and suppliers who have wholeheartedly backed this project."
