Over 570kg of food donated to local Bradford food bank
At Christeyns UK, we have been helping to support the Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank by donating over 570kg worth of food over the festive period to those in need across the Bradford district.
The initiative, organised by Donna Holt, from the Production Department, was well supported by our employees from all areas of the business, and we also fund-matched the value of the donated items.
Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank is a small, registered charity, in operation since 2004. Run entirely by volunteers, the charity receives donations of non-perishable foods from the community to give free of charge to organisations working with vulnerable people in need of food.
Donna, along with a team of helpers, delivered all the donated items to the Food Bank just prior to Christmas ready to be parceled up for distribution.
Juile Woodhurst, volunteer at the Food Bank commented: “Donations like these from the local community are so important in supporting those most vulnerable in our society. We really appreciate the efforts and kindness from the staff at Christeyns in helping us build bridges across the community.”
