A CHARITABLE donation from Tesco in Oakenshaw has seen several food parcels sent out to young people across Redditch.
The supermarket giant donated four trays worth of food to Redditch Nightstop – an emergency accommodation network for young people experiencing homelessness.
Nightstop provides same-night, emergency accommodation, placing young people experiencing homelessness, or at risk of homelessness, in the homes of well trained and vetted volunteer hosts.
Sharon Holtom from the non-profit organisation said: “Tesco was going to give us a voucher, but because we have been giving out so many food parcels during lockdown, we needed our food supply replenished.
“We are so grateful because items such as pasta, rice, pot noodles and tins of meat will help us provide more food parcels for our young clients.”
Nightstop is aimed at preventing homelessness in young adults aged 16-35.
