Greggs donates food to Louth residents and homeless charity

The Louth branch of the bakery chain Greggs has donated food to customers, passers-by, and a homeless charity following its closure due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The branch, in the Market Place, made the kind-hearted gesture on Tuesday afternoon (March 24) as they prepared to close down for the foreseeable future.

Charlene Hewson-Sainty, who works at the branch, told the Leader: “We have given food donations to passers-by in street and customers before closure on Tuesday.

“NHS and emergency workers were given free drinks all week and free meals on Tuesday, and daily unsold food donations always go to local charities”.

A massive charity donation of unsold stock was given to ECHO (East Coast Homeless Outreach) which will be used to make food parcels for those in need.

Charlene continued: “ECHO are extremely grateful as always, and Greggs are pleased it has gone to good causes and people in need.”
