Employees at HBJ Gateley Wareing have donated 1.035 tonnes of household goods to Starter Packs Glasgow. The law firm's Edinburgh and Glasgow offices delivered two van loads of cutlery, crockery, bed linen and cleaning materials to the charity. This will help six families starting new tenancies. The donations also resulted in a carbon saving of eight tonnes.
Sarah Findlay, development manager from Starter Packs Glasgow, said: "We cannot thank the firm enough for their collection of these vital goods.
"Their support for helping homeless people is invaluable and we are most grateful to them for this."
Susan McDonald, associate at HBJ Gateley Wareing, said: "This is an amazing effort by our teams in Edinburgh and Glasgow and the household items that we donated will go towards helping those in need to get the best possible start in their new home.
"Many of us take having basic household items such as cutlery, cups and bed linen for granted, and for the people we have helped through this initiative, donations are much needed."
