A charity which helps feed homeless people has been donated a van to help carry out its good work.
City Harvest was started by Mark Harvey 14 months ago with a £5,000 donation, and delivers food to various organisations which feed the capital’s homeless.
Until a few weeks ago, it was based in Hammersmith, but has recently moved to Greenford where Mr Harvey lives.
It used to deliver food by hiring a van, but now a member of the charity’s board has been able to get hold of a seven-year-old Mercedes van in tip top condition, courtesy of Marks & Spencer.
Mr Harvey said: “This means we can continue getting food for people in need.
“We had the support of the great team at Enterprise car hire Hammersmith, who let me hire a van to collect food and redistribute it at least twice a week at a great rate for over a year - I hired so many vans I’m a Platinum member.
“But now we have this van it means we don’t have to hire one, which was draining our resources.
"We can now concentrate on distributing the food and getting it straight to the homeless charities helping thousands of people across the city.
“M&S gave the van full serviced and with a full MOT. It’s in great condition. I’ve never been happier.”
