Grimsby Institute secret Santa appeal

Grimsby Institute secret Santa appeal

A college has set up a secret Santa appeal to aid homeless people enrolled on its courses and in the local area.

This Christmas, learners and staff at Grimsby Institute can donate Christmas gifts and food for Christmas Hampers for homeless learners in Grimsby.

Stuart Owen, Communications Officer for the Grimsby Institute Group said: “Many of these homeless young people are from the Grimsby YMCA, the Foyer, the Community House and Door Step and they won’t be celebrating Christmas with family or loved ones.

He added: “We have also identified a need at the Grimsby Women’s Refuge where there are currently 14 women and 27 children, who have no home, no personal possessions and no family.”

The Instititute has asked local businesses to help contribute to this Christmas Appeal by donating stock, or gift vouchers to help increase its impact.
