Vogan Accountancy Wakefield Sponsors Hamper Boxes

As featured in the Wakefield Express we have continued our support for the Community Awareness Programme (CAP), which this year will help to deliver 1,000 Christmas food hampers to families in need over the Christmas period. The appeal is sponsored by the Wakefield Express and organised by the Rotary Club of Wakefield Chantry and CAP.

After many years of support for CAP, Ian and Sue Vogan have now decided to get actively involved in the hamper appeal. We will be providing enough financial support for the boxes, as well extra towards additional food.

Sue said: "We are delighted to support this fantastic local cause. It is a great campaign and while we have so many people in need it is good to know there are people who want to help. We are happy to play our part in this local effort. We have teamed up with Macfarlane Packaging to provide the boxes for the hampers."

Lots of other local organisations - including scouts and guides and church groups - are also working hard to collect food and hampers to support the appeal, and donations have been rolling in to the CAP warehouse on Market Street, Wakefield.

The hampers can be filled with any dried foods, tea or coffee, cereals, tinned fruit and vegetables, stuffing and gravy mix, plus long life items such as UHT milk and fruit juice. They also need jam and marmalade, pasta and rice, meat pastes and tinned meat, biscuits and other Christmas themed foods and confectionery with the exception of fresh food and alcohol.

Volunteers from the rotary and Ackworth School will help to pack the food, before being delivered to Children First Hubs in Wakefield, Castleford, Hemsworth and Normanton. The finished hampers will then be delivered to deserving families across the region.

Gemma Jimmison, Express Christmas Co-ordinator, said: "Christmas should be about spending time with family, watching your children enjoy their holidays - it should not be worrying about where the next meal comes from. Christmas is also about giving - so please donate what you can to make sure families do not go hungry this Christmas."
