Help homeless in Hull
A TRAVEL agent is asking for donations of food and clothes to help homeless people in Hull.
Co-operative Travel has teamed up with The Salvation Army to collect donations after the charity appealed for support.
The action comes after The Salvation Army revealed it was having to turn many people away due to lack of resources.
It is the first time the charity has had to take such action.
Come and discover the wildlife at Blacktoft Sands nature reserve for just £6. Offer includes entry for 2 adults and up to 3 children, binocular hire and activities for children. Normal value £12.
Terms: Redeem voucher at visitor reception during opening hours, 9am to 5pm. Only, one pair of binoculars per voucher, customers will need to leave car keys as a deposit for binoculars.

Sarah Ingram, store manager at Co-operative Travel in Holderness Road, east Hull, said the store is now accepting donations.
She said: "We have had a great response to our appeals in the past and I'm sure this time will be no different.
"We are appealing for food and clothes parcels as well as cash donations.
"Anything anyone can spare would be really appreciated and would go towards helping people who need it the most."
The charity, which helps homeless people across the city at its centre in Beverley Road, has been providing food and clothes parcels for more than ten years.
Last year, the Co-operative store passed on six full trolley-loads to the RSPCA, which is the biggest collection they have received.
Malcolm Pearson, one of the Christian charity's volunteers, said he was delighted to have the support of the Co-operative.
He said: "The donations will make a big difference to The Salvation Army and will help a lot of people who come to us for help.
"A lot of people are coming to us and unfortunately, on some occasions, we are unable to provide them with the things they want."
Anyone wanting to make a donation can do so by visiting the store.
