Easter parcels distributed to the homeless

21 different Companion regional coordinators have received their Easter parcels and distributed them to those in need for Easter.  12,000 items were packed up to make 828 Easter parcels, by 20 volunteers in London, and couriered to the different coordinators. 

Each parcel contained a t shirt, pair of boxers/pants, pair of socks, bag of toiletries and a Creme Egg. Amongst the different places there were Companion University groups at Aberdeen, Bristol, Cambridge, Glasgow and Oxford University.  A total of 13 different venues in Scotland and 8 venues in England.  We are very grateful to all the volunteers working so hard so that we can reach many homeless men and women with this Easter gift of valuable items. Here are some of the photos of the different sites receiving the parcels.
