The 40 days before Easter are usually a time when people give up something, but instead the team decided they wanted to give something back to the community.

During Lent they bought weekly donations of food, toiletries, underwear and household essentials into the department for Hope Centre clients.

Radiographer, Liz Page, said: “We wanted to do something for the Hope Centre and give something back to the community instead of giving something up.
