Dean Russell, joined charity GSF and the Salvation Army to take part in a Basket Brigade charity event in London.
The Christmas activity helps disadvantaged families in South London with volunteers helping across the day to pack 100 hampers with essential food items that will help families through Christmas in what can be a very hard time financially.
Every family that had a child/children in their family also received a personalised present especially handpicked to suit their age group, wrapped and put into a gift bag. Dean Russell commented:
"Taking part in this incredible initiative was a really powerful experience. It proves once again that when people come together with a common purpose they really can make a difference in the community."
Dean Russell was interviewed on London Live as part of the day, which can be viewed
