Campaign Organised By Charity Project Hope
With Christmas just around the corner, a team of 16 legal experts from Leeds have been getting into the spirit of giving by packing 200 hampers to be handed out into the community.
This is the second time that law firm Irwin Mitchell has been involved in the festive campaign which is organised by Leeds –based charity Project Hope, which helps disadvantaged families and individuals affected by poverty.
The hampers were filled on 6 December, with items funded by donations from local people and businesses, including Irwin Mitchell, which also raised £275 in sponsorship for Project Hope. The charity also helps people improve their educational skills and emotional wellbeing, and promotes healthy lifestyle choices.
Expert Opinion"It’s great to be able to help our local community, particularly at this time of year when things can be more difficult for many families.
We hope the hampers will go far in helping those most affected by poverty this festive season.”

Gosia Denham from Project Hope said: “We were absolutely delighted with the response we had this year and want to say a huge thank you to everyone that donated items and their time to pack the hampers.
“Far too many people struggle at Christmas and the generosity of local individuals and businesses, including Irwin Mitchell, has been fantastic."
