A continental food store in Banbury is looking to spread some Christmas cheer to vulnerable young people by raffling one of its luxury hampers.

The Italian Larder on Beaumont Road has compiled a hamper worth £100 filled with lots of great food and drink to support the Banbury Young Homelessness Project (BYHP).

The winner will be announced at the business’s special Christmas tasting event on Saturday, where a range of authentic continental canapes and mulled wine will be on offer.

Debbie Durham, owner of the Italian Larder, said: “We are delighted to support BYHP. The work they do within the local community is vital and without them many vulnerable young people would be without the help and support they need to turn their lives around.

“Our customers have been pitching in too. We recently gave away a massive 3kg panettone as a competition prize and were delighted when the winner donated it to BYHP.”

To be in with a chance of winning the hamper, pop into the Italian Larder on the Penhill Industrial Estate and pick up a ticket for £1. All proceeds raised from the raffle will go straight to the charity.

BYHP helps young people aged between 16-25 and for more information about the raffle visit www.theitalianlar der.co.uk
