Brighton residents enjoy food hampers

6 July 2020

Young residents at Sanctuary Supported Living’s Brighton and Hove Foyer have been enjoying delicious food hampers, thanks to kind-hearted volunteers from a local church.

For the last three months of lockdown, Brighton and Hove Foyer, which provides accommodation and support for young people aged 16 to 25 and who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, has received more than 30 hampers a week from the generous volunteers at St Peter’s Church.

The hampers are packed with fruit and veg, bread, tinned goods, freshly-cooked meals, toiletries and more, with some hampers even being tailor-made to suit residents with specific dietary requirements.

The volunteers have also donated furniture for the Foyer’s lounge, including a coffee table, chairs and bookshelves. This has been greatly appreciated by residents, who are using the area to relax and enjoy socially-distanced activities organised by the Foyer team.

Jan Weston, Deputy Local Service Manager, said: “We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone at St Peter’s for these amazing donations.

“They have made a huge impact on the lives of residents and we’re hoping that this partnership can continue long after lockdown is a distant memory.”
