A firm which has done something special to help the community.

So one company decided they would help those less fortunate by putting together food hampers for homeless people.

Staff at BAE Systems in Portsmouth collected non-perishable food items including tins of soup, pasta and biscuits, which was given to the Salvation Army.

The collection formed part of the company’s Charity Challenge initiative, which aims to provide valuable support to local charities through company donations.

It also aims to engage employees in fundraising and volunteering activities.

It is the third year the company has run the programme with the Salvation Army’s Christmas appeal.
