SNAPSHOT: Food for thought

Top of the Pops presenter Gail Hipgrave, nee Porter, shows off her culinary skills at the launch of a partnership between homeless charity Centrepoint and the Royal Bank of Scotland Group. The initiative aims to raise more than £1.5 million during the next three years, which the charity estimates will benefit around 2,500 young homeless people a year. The bank will provide access to training and employment opportunities for all Centrepoint residents. Bank staff will be encouraged to participate in fundraising activities including the London Marathon and the British 10K Road Race with money raised being matched by the bank and donated to Centrepoint. Staff will also be asked to collect items such as shower gel, Easter Eggs and books, and donate them as gifts to Centrepoint residents, and help them to redecorate their hostel accommodation.
