Shield Services Group Supports Bristol Homeless With Christmas Dinners

Shield Has Teamed Up With Caring In Bristol To Provide Warm Meals And a Sense Of Community At Christmas

Shield Services Group is supporting Caring In Bristol to provide up to 50 homeless people with a warming Christmas meal as a part of the ‘Big Christmas Dinner’ initiative.

Caring In Bristol is a charity which operates all year round and aims to work in imaginative and creative ways with people experiencing or at risk of homelessness, with the public and community partners to bring about lasting change in Bristol and beyond. Whilst active all year round, Caring In Bristol’s work during the winter is vital as Caring In Bristol believes that no one should be left out in the cold this Christmas. For three decades, Bristol’s Big Christmas Dinner has run in the heart of St Pauls, hosting hundreds of people experiencing homelessness every Christmas Day for a proper hearty meal with all the trimmings.

Luke Mitchell, Corporate & Community Partnerships Manager at Caring in Bristol, commented, “It’s amazing news that Shield is getting involved, thank you so so much for donating to Caring in Bristol, this means so much to us. This year, as you can imagine, has been tougher than ever for local charities like ourselves, both in terms of the pressure on our services and fundraising for our projects, but it is caring companies like Shield that have given us the boost we need. We couldn’t be more grateful for your support of our cause this winter.”

Luke House, Chairman of Shield Services Group, commented, “Shield looks to support worthy charitable initiatives all year round, but there is always a feeling of greater urgency at Christmas time. As a family business that looks to support and encourage its people, I was delighted when our Procurement Co-ordinator, Jackie Hendy, suggested that we should look to support Caring In Bristol this Christmas. We have supported them in the past, and I am delighted to be reinvigorating our relationship.”
