Law firm Hill Dickinson is providing a homeless charity in Manchester with 60 Christmas dinners on the evening of the law firm's festive celebrations in the city.
With the agreement of Manchester City Football Club, which is hosting Hill Dickinson's Christmas party, the meals will be donated to The Mustard Tree charity, which improves and rebuilds the lives of homeless and marginalised people in Manchester.
On Friday Mustard Tree will collect the meals from Manchester City's function facilities and as part of the charity's regular Friday and Saturday night soup run will distribute them to homeless people in Manchester city centre.
David Wareing, head of Hill Dickinson's Manchester office, said: "We wanted to make a gesture to those in our community who find themselves in a vulnerable position this Christmas. We hope that the food will go some way in helping Mustard Tree to reach out to homeless people in central Manchester."
Paul Wenham from the Mustard Tree added: "Hill Dickinson's Christmas meals will be a welcome addition to the sandwiches, hot drinks and soup that we provide to homeless people on the streets of Manchester. The soup run also provides us with an opportunity to offer a hand of friendship those who are alone and in need at this time of year."
Angela Hodson, conference and events sales manager at MCFC, added: "When we heard about what Hill Dickinson wanted to do, we were deeply moved and more than happy to help them with their token of kindness this Christmas."
