Merry Christmas! It will certainly be a different sort of Christmas this year with so many people unable to see friends and family. We hope that whatever your festive season looks like, you are able to connect with family in some way and hopefully make plans for a better 2021.
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a far reaching impact not only on businesses across the country but on families struggling to make ends meet. In previous years the team have collected food items for the local food bank, however due to working remotely we were unable to do this. Instead we donated £250 worth of supermarket vouchers to support the ‘No Child Goes Hungry At Christmas’ campaign. Donating this way means that the food bank can provide local families with provisions and fresh food this Christmas which will make a massive difference to so many lives in our local community. Our thanks go to the hardworking and dedicated team that are running the programme, we know they are facing huge challenges with preparing and distributing food safely and are working long hours to make this happen.
