OVER 50 hampers were delivered to children in care, homeless people, refugees and the elderly in Bradford over the festive period, with the help of not-for-profit organisation Dream Big, Aim High.

Councillor Fozia Shaheen, of the Toller ward, worked closely with the Girlington Centre as part of the project.

She said: “I thank everyone who donated gifts and everyone who volunteered. People who have received the hampers have been absolutely delighted to have such a lovely surprise.

“Christmas can be a very stressful and difficult time for families and individuals. It’s been a team effort and shows how the Girlington community comes together to help others.

"As a Bradfordian, I couldn’t be prouder to see how all our communities and businesses can pull together to ensure everyone is remembered during the Christmas festivities".
