Porsche Centre Preston has helped rough sleepers, homeless and other vulnerable people by donating food and other necessities to a support centre’s Christmas appeal.

Staff, customers and suppliers dropped off gifts for the city’s Foxton Centre throughout December.

Porsche Centre Preston managing director Tom Fox said: ‘As a proud Prestonian, I know all about the great work of the Foxton Centre.

The latest issue of Car Dealer Magazine is out now!

‘For over 50 years, they have helped to give the homeless a bed and a voice to people at the margins of society in our city.

‘Their mission really struck a chord with our staff and customers, especially at Christmas. We were only too happy to help with their appeal and hope it will help to make a small difference.’

The Foxton Centre provides its services via a combination of grants from large organisations as well as donations from individuals and businesses.

Chief executive Jeff Marsh, who visited the showroom to pick up the donated goods, said: ‘Thank you to Porsche Centre Preston and all the other local businesses who have supported our Christmas appeal.

‘Every donation makes a big difference and goes directly to supporting our practical work on the ground. Donations to the Foxton Centre give us the flexibility to respond quickly in helping people.

‘Our foodbank helps those who are most in need of feeding themselves and their families by providing good-quality food items to ensure their families don’t go hungry.’
