Coventry Telegraph - - FRONT PAGE - By LEIGH MENCARINI Con­tent Di­rect Edi­tor

CHRIST­MAS is com­ing and here’s YOUR chance to give some­one you love a treat they de­serve.

The Coven­try Tele­graph, Heart of Eng­land Co-op­er­a­tive So­ci­ety and War­wick­shire-based de­liv­ery com­pany TNT have once again joined forces so you can make it ex­tra special for some­one de­serv­ing this sea­son.

For the 14th year run­ning, the Pam­per with a Ham­per Christ­mas cam­paign will be help­ing to spread some fes­tive cheer across the re­gion.

We have 140 Christ­mas ham­pers to give away to peo­ple over the age of 65, packed with good­ies from our Co­op­er­a­tive Food stores rang­ing from teabags and bis­cuits to fes­tive favourites like mince pies and Christ­mas pud­dings.

Keith Perry, Edi­tor of the Coven­try Tele­graph said: “Pam­per with a Ham­per can make Christ­mas that lit­tle bit more special for loved ones, friends and neigh­bours.”

And Ali Kurji, chief ex­ec­u­tive of the Heart of Eng­land Co-op­er­a­tive So­ci­ety, added: “Once again we are de­lighted to part­ner the Coven­try Tele­graph with the Pam­per with a Ham­per cam­paign through our Help­ing Hearts Award scheme.”

Pam­per with a Ham­per is one of 4,500 ini­tia­tives sup­ported by the Help­ing Hearts Award scheme, with over £951,000 pledged since its launch.

The Heart of Eng­land Co-op­er­a­tive So­ci­ety is one of the re­gion’s largest in­de­pen­dent re­tail­ers in the area.

Once again, the scheme is be­ing sup­ported by TNT. With its UK head of­fice based in Ather­stone, the busi­ness em­ploys 1,800 peo­ple in War­wick­shire. TNT, a FedEx com­pany, is of the world’s largest par­cel de­liv­ery com­pa­nies, de­liv­er­ing up to 1,000,000 items around the globe ev­ery day.
