H&T Pawnbrokers donates to Petrus for Christmas

Date published: 09 January 2021

The Rochdale branch of H&T Pawnbrokers has donated goods to Petrus this Christmas.

The team of six collected food from customers and local businesses, including the Health Food Centre, Fulton Foods, Rochdale Discount Store, Pound Zone Discount Store, Mobile Magic and Chrimes Butchers.

Staff donations also helped make up the donations to help Petrus, which provides supported housing and services to homeless people across Rochdale and Oldham.

Items ranged from selection boxes and tins to hats, gloves, socks and scarfs, plus a meat pack which will be cooked and given out in Christmas meals.

Zoe Parry, regional manager, said: “It has been a difficult year for everyone and our colleagues across the country have worked hard to identify where we can help the most.

“It is heart-warming to see how much our teams care. They have personally dropped off food, toys and festive collections to many locations. We hope this goes some way to making Christmas a little brighter.”

Nationally, H&T Pawnbrokers has collected 4,000 food items, donated to more than 50 food banks and collected £1,500 for The Beatson Cancer Charity in Scotland.

Established in 1897, H&T Pawnbrokers has over 250 stores throughout the UK.
