Galatia wraps up Christmas in Gainsborough
Enthusiastic volunteers from Galatia have lent a hand to a local homeless charity, to give vulnerable individuals in Gainsborough an early Christmas present.
The company’s management team spent the day packing food parcels at the Salvation Army in Gainsborough, making sure those in need receive a Christmas gift this year.
Andy McNaught, Marie Kirtley, Jan Glover, Joe Minaudo, Dan Sykes and apprentice Ross Baines spent the day wrapping parcels at the charity, which each contained emergency food supplies, a Christmas pudding and a Christmas card to send some seasonal greetings.
Staff from Galatia have also recently donated £150 worth of food and Christmas gifts to the charity, to help vulnerable individuals stay warm this winter.
Galatia’s Customer and Community Officer, Kathryn Murdoch, said: “We’re really happy to be supporting the Salvation Army once again, with their efforts to support vulnerable individuals in Gainsborough. Everyone deserves a little Christmas cheer and warmth at this time of year, and we hope our efforts have helped the charity to reach as many people as possible who need support.”
Gwen Abery, from the Salvation Army, said “We are very grateful for all that Galatia has done to help us to support vulnerable individuals in Gainsborough. All of the employees have been incredibly generous and a large number of the vulnerable people whom we support will greatly benefit from this thoughtful donation at Christmas
