The packages include such essential items as as toothbrushes, shampoo and deodorant, which have been donated by the Co-op on Hills Road.

Barry Giffen of Jimmy’s Night Shelter, said: “Here at Jimmy’s we are delighted to be supporting the National Citizen Service. It is very humbling to be supported by our local community and the NCS students. All the items provided will go to make a very real difference to a homeless individual’s life.”

“We are happy to support such a great cause.”
