Giving Something Back to Our Local Community
Back in May we decided to donate to a local foodbank close to our Head Office in Lincolnshire, we wanted to support people in the local community in a way that was important to us.
As a business we encourage and support our staff with their charitable work, fundraising efforts and take part in specific events and charity days throughout the calendar year, and so the decision to support a worthy cause during the last few tricky months was an easy one of our team.
In light of recent news, now more than ever it is important for us to be supporting a charity close to our hearts.
Over the last few months, the team at our Hemswell plant have been collecting for our local foodbank, adding a couple of extra items to their weekly shop to donate to our local community.
On Monday 26th October we took our donations along to the Lincoln Foodbank (seeded by the Trussell Trust) and handed them over to one of their volunteers there.
It’s a sobering fact that the foodbanks we support are expecting to hand out 6 parcels a minute during the winter months.
We’re thrilled to have been able to support such an important project and will continue to do so over the coming months, if you’d like to support or donate you can do so by contacting the trust directly or by visiting their website https://lincoln.foodbank.org.uk/.
We’d like to thank our team who have been fully behind our decision to support this charity and for all their efforts over the last few months, we know the trust are truly grateful for what we’ve managed to achieve for them and the families who benefit from the food parcels.
We will continue to support the foodbank and keep you posted over the coming months.
Thank you everyone!
