Bristol Airport’s Food Donation To Help Bristol’s Homeless Charity
Created: 26th Oct 2020
Last week Bristol Airport partnered with Help Bristol’s Homeless (HBH) charity to offer a large food donation from one of our restaurants.
With the help of a couple of Bristol Airport staff and the charity founder Jasper Thompson, they worked together on helping load up a VW Transporter van which ended up completely full of food! This donation will go directly towards helping those in need after an incredibly difficult year due to the current coronavirus pandemic and especially now with winter soon approaching.
Help Bristol’s Homeless is a volunteer-run charity which provides safe, stable and comfortable accommodation where residents can access the help they need to rebuild their lives. Their mission is to get people off the streets and give them a helping hand to improve their lives and enable each individual to reach and achieve their full potential.
Jasper Thompson, Help Bristol’s Homeless charity founder, said:
“Everything we do at HBH is working towards helping the homeless of Bristol, through providing temporary accommodation to showers to hot meals, and we rely completely on donations to do it. Generous gifts of food, like this one, don't just fill someone's hungry belly, they show that person that they are valued, they are cared about and they matter. Anyone can end up homeless, we all know that, and sometimes it is hard to ask for the help but with great support like this, HBH can continue to put that help out there, give that hand up, working together we can make that difference. Thank you to all at Bristol Airport for being part of the solution.”
Harry Ellis, Public Affairs Executive, Bristol Airport said:
“We were delighted to have partnered with Help Bristol’s Homeless charity to offer a large amount of food to such a worthy charity. Whilst homelessness is an incredibly complex issue we hope this donation will support Jasper and the charity and help those in need at such a difficult time. We look forward to working with Jasper and the charity in the future."
