Stockport Express - - News -

ROUGH sleep­ers, the home­less and vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple wel­comed a free de­liv­ery of Hor­licks.

As part of a na­tion­wide ini­tia­tive, called Gift­ing a Mo­ment to Com­mu­ni­ties, the 24 cases, in­clud­ing Hor­licks mugs, was dis­patched to The Well­spring char­ity and re­source cen­tre for the home­less, based on Har­vey Street, Stock­port.

The cam­paign aims to of­fer warmth and com­fort to the peo­ple who rely on The Well­spring and other char­i­ties and or­gan­i­sa­tions across the coun­try

Jonathan Billings, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer at The Well­spring, said: “There was much ex­cite­ment when the Hor­licks de­liv­ery came. Many of our ser­vice users re­mem­ber en­joy­ing a tasty mug of Hor­licks as a child and look for­ward to us putting the ket­tle on.”

Michelle Younger, Hor­licks mar­ket­ing man­ager, added “As the cold tem­per­a­tures set in, the plight of many who rely on shel­ters such as the re­mark­able The Well­spring be­come ex­as­per­ated.”
