Hampers filled with food to help those in need over the festive season have been delivered to Newmarket Open Door.

The boxes, filled by Flagship staff, contain non-perishable items to be given to people in time for Christmas, many of whom would go hungry.

Later this month, hamper donations will also be made to The Woodbridge Salvation Army and Thetford Foodbanks.

As a housing provider for people in need, some of Flagship’s customers may themselves receive the boxes.

Deputy chief executive, Helen Walsham, said: “Last year was a huge success as our staff were really enthusiastic about decorating and filling the boxes.

“I’m really pleased we have decided to do something similar again for some fantastic charities who make a huge difference to people who are less fortunate than us.”

Newmarket Open Door will distribute the boxes to people in their community.
