A charitable organisation has distributed supermarket vouchers worth £200,000 to families in need.

The Stevenage Community Trust has donated gift tokens to families around the town in the hope that they will be able to help make Christmas a bit more affordable.

Working in partnership with children’s centres, Home Start Stevenage, the family nurse partnership, and the Citizens Advice Bureau, the trust was able to identify the families who will most benefit from such a donation.

Caroline Haskins, manager of Stevenage Community Trust, said: “It is heart-warming to know that this donation will make such a difference to the Christmas of many children and their families who live in our community.”

Stevenage Community Trust is an independent charity which raises funds to help those living in the town and its surrounding villages.
