Aldi has helped spread some Easter cheer by donating chocolate eggs to homeless families in Bradford.
The Shipley branch of Aldi supermarket kindly donated 100 Easter eggs to our Bradford services which have been given to young people and children living in our group living and supported accommodation.
Horton Housing provides housing, training and support services for vulnerable people in Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees and North Yorkshire. The charity works with a wide range of clients including people who are homeless, have mental health, drug or alcohol issues, young people, older people, refugees, Gypsies and Travellers, people with disabilities and ex-offenders.
Chief Executive Officer Paul Gartland said: “We’re really grateful for this kind and thoughtful donation which will help families and young people celebrate Easter this year.
“This is a difficult and challenging time for everyone and will help put a smile on the children’s faces.”
Fritz Walleczek, Managing Director of Corporate Responsibility at Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “We’re always looking for new and creative ways to increase the amount of food that we’re able to donate.
“Donating Easter eggs to different groups and charities across the nation is a great way for us to bring a much needed Easter treat to those most in need.”
