The regular generosity of a member of staff from Gentoo has sparked off a food collection amongst his colleagues.

As soon as they discovered he supported Sunderland Open House, the drop-in cafĂ© held in St Mary's Church hall for people who are homeless and in need,  they, too, wanted to help.

Peter Hill, has been taking food donations to Open House for some time, but his kind-hearted actions were only recently revealed when his boss became curious and asked about his regular, laden trips into the city centre.

When he mentioned his charitable actions, his boss and colleagues immediately set about arranging a collection of food donations and the team will be holding a 'Jeans for Beans' day in the coming weeks.
