Peterborough Soup Kitchen welcomed 11 new pairs of hands from a Cambridgeshire housebuilder. 

Teams from Barratt and David Wilson Homes Cambridgeshire got stuck in and volunteered at Peterborough Soup Kitchen. 

11 volunteers came from Barratt and David Wilson to help them in the run up to Christmas. 

The team split into three groups, one redecorated the building, another organised the stock room and the last team helped in the kitchen. 

Maxine Drake, a trustee of Peterborough Soup Kitchen, said: “We had an amazing day with the team, we can’t thank them enough for giving their time so generously, having received so many great donations leading up to Christmas our stocks are now more organised, the redecorating has brightened the place up, and we have a good stock of fruit cake in the freezer to serve on Christmas Day.” 

Daniel Evans, managing director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes Cambridgeshire, said: “During a time when costs continue to rise, it’s evident how charities such as the soup kitchen are heavily relied on. It’s more important than ever that we help to support them to support the local community.”
