    P C Henderson is delighted to have continued its annual tradition this year and donated six Christmas turkeys to The Peoples Kitchen – a Newcastle based charity which supports homeless and vulnerable people.Each year P C Henderson gifts each of its employees with a Christmas turkey to enjoy with their friends and family over the festive period. As part of P C Henderson’s commitment to support local and national charities, the company also donates a number of turkeys to The People’s Kitchen so that those less fortunate can enjoy a Christmas turkey on the big day.Established in 1985, the charity relies solely on volunteers to provide a range of services to homeless and disadvantaged people. Services include clothes, warm surroundings, toiletries, friendship, ongoing support and hot food. The charity serves up over 100 hot meals most nights - with the addition of the extra meals they serve on the streets - this equates to over 40,000 hot meals being served per year!“As a company we’re committed to supporting a wide range of charities throughout the year – these are mostly national charities so it’s also great to be able to give back to a charity that’s making such a difference on a local level. The Peoples Kitchen is based very close to our UK offices – it’s great to know that we’re helping local people in need - particularly at this time of year”, commented Trevor Cossins, Managing Director at P C Henderson.Charities that P C Henderson has supported this year include Macmillan, Children in Need, Save the Children and most recently The Peoples Kitchen – raising a fantastic combined total of £730 plus the 6 turkeys donated.We’d like to wish all of our employees and customers a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    P C Henderson has donated a number of turkeys to Newcastle based charity, The Peoples Kitchen to help feed the homeless and less fortunate in the North East over the festive period.Established in 1985, The People’s Kitchen has been supporting the homeless and disadvantaged in the Newcastle area with warm clothes, food and support.Trevor Cossins, Managing Director at P C Henderson was happy to help, he comments:“Christmas is a time we traditionally give gifts but it is also a time to reflect, be thankful for what we have and support those who are less fortunate or need a helping hand.This year every employee at P C Henderson received a turkey as a gift to help them celebrate the special holiday with their families and friends. We also thought it was equally as important to buy some extra turkeys to help The Peoples Kitchen provide a warm meal and a safe environment on Christmas Day to those in need around the North East.”Spurred on by an article about the death of a homeless man, founder Alison Kay (then in her 70s) decided to set up an organisation to support those in need. Within a year, Alison had 40 helpers, and they set up the first People’s Kitchen next to the railway arches by Dean Street.

    November, a time of year where a quick double-take of your colleagues new found (and often unusual) facial hair is a regular occurrence – and it was no different in the PC Henderson office last month.The Movember  Foundation raises funds on a global scale all year round but in November one of its most recognised fund raising methods is put to play – the Movember Movement. For 30 days men are challenged to cut out the shaving and grow their moustache in order to raise  funds for the charity.Six P C Henderson team members took part in the hairy challenge and raised over £340 in their efforts. The team would like to thank everybody who donated towards the worthy cause. If you'd like to show your support, it's not too late - simply visit the teams Movember page and submit your donation. What is Movember?
