CMbE continue to support local foodbank
The CarnaudMetalbox Engineering Charity Fund has been donating to local charities for the last 30 years with food donations made to the local foodbank by members of staff all year round.
Charity committee member Sue Roy began saving reward vouchers from the company purchase of Avery labels, and the charity committee got permission to use them for the foodbank.
Having saved up £100 in vouchers, she went shopping with fellow committee member Paula Gurney.
Josie from Bradford Central Foodbank said: “Thank you so much for your recent donation of 77.20KG this is amazing! This will feed 13 people or provide 117 meals.
“I hope you had a good half term! I lucked out on the weather while I was camping in the Lakes which was amazing! While I was away the team did a fantastic job of feeding 404 people including 263 people on free school meals. Here are some of the families we helped last week with your support – THANK YOU!!!
“As well as working with schools to help hungry families we also work with agencies to support asylum seekers and refugees. As Bradford is a city of sanctuary, we all want to help people who have left everything and everyone behind in the hope of being safe.”
