Kind hearted staff with Incommunities have donated hundreds of household items and clothes to help bring some festive cheer to people who are homeless and needing a helping hand.

Everything from toiletries to warm coats and woollies has been given to Horton Housing as part of the local Cares at Christmas campaign supporting vulnerable individuals and families.
Over the last few weeks collections have been made at the housing group’s base at The Quays in Shipley and its offices on Hillam Road, Bradford.
Macmillan Cancer Support in Shipley also donated four big bags of toiletries towards the housing group’s efforts.
Geraldine Howley, Incommunities’ Group Chief Executive said: "Staff have really shown their caring side to make these donations and help those in our communities that are homeless and in need of help.
"Our collecting was also given a big boost by Macmillan Cancer Support staff and volunteers in Shipley.
"As part of Cares at Christmas we are delighted to support Horton Housing in their work helping vulnerable people rebuild their lives."
Paul Gartland, Horton Housing Chief Executive Officer, said: "We are very grateful to staff at Incommunities for choosing Horton Housing and for all their efforts resulting in the extremely generous amount of donations that we have received.
"The families and individuals we support, who often have little or nothing, will be very thankful for the extra help this Christmas."
In the run-up to Christmas, Incommunities staff have also donated well over a thousand items to three local foodbanks and as a group made financial gifts to two West Yorkshire hospices.
