Mayor Dorothy Thornhill and Soup-er Tom launch Watford New Hope Trust harvest time
Every year the charity helps more than 600 people, providing beds for 56 individuals every night and opportunities to help rebuild their lives.
In order to feed this amount of people, the charity is reliant on donations at Harvest time.
This year, the charity has called upon the help of Soup-er Tom to help with donations.
The charity made a short film starring the superhero in conjunction with Laurence Haines Primary School, and features children from the school.
Rebecca Palmer, community fundraising manager, at Watford New Hope Trust said: "We’re grateful for the generous gifts of food and toiletries we receive each year from local schools, churches, synagogues, businesses and community groups which enable us to feed over 600 people each year. Last year we received donations amounting to over £80,000."
Dorothy Thornhill, Elected Mayor of Watford, added: "It’s great to see the community coming together to help some of the most vulnerable people in the town, and it’s a pleasure to support the work of Watford New Hope Trust."
