An Ipswich charity are looking to hand out more than 100 luxury food hampers to vulnerable families in the town over Christmas.

Community group Love Ipswich, established at Proclaimers Church, have been collecting donations of food - mince pies, packets of stuffing, jars of cranberry sauce - from the public and local businesses.

Project co-ordinator Fran Marcus, said: “We try and include everything a family of four needs for Christmas dinner, and a few extra little treats.

“We add a voucher for perishable items and wrap it all up as a beautiful hamper.”

The charity works with agencies to identify the people most in need at Christmas, including refugees, families receiving help from social services and people living in hostels.

Last year the group delivered 101 luxury Christmas hampers to the most vulnerable families in Ipswich.
