A HUDDERSFIELD charity launched its Christmas appeal at a local supermarket.
The Welcome Centre, based at the Huddersfield Methodist Mission at Lord Street, spent the day at Morrisons store, Waterloo.
They let customers know about their work amongst people in crisis need in the area.
The Centre gives out food, toiletries, small kitchen items, nappies and bedding to people referred by different organisations in the town.
This includes homeless people, struggling families, refugees and asylum seekers, and young people in Huddersfield.
Sue Burton, project manager at the Welcome Centre, said: "Our day spent in Morrisons was absolutely fantastic and I would like to thank everybody, on behalf of the team, for the amazing amount of contributions made.
"You have made a big difference to many people's lives this Christmas."
As well as collecting financial donations and practical items like food and toiletries, the team were hoping to raise the Centre's profile.
Ms Burton said: " We got quite a lot of feedback from shoppers last Friday saying they were very interested in becoming more involved with the charity but had never heard of us before then.
"It was about letting people know we're here and telling them what we do."
