Christmas calendars donated to local foodbanks

Published 29 November 2018

A collection of advent calendars were handed out at foodbanks across the Wakefield District by MRM Solutions and the WDH Cash Wise Team ready for Christmas.

Both teams visited the foodbanks handing out sweet-filled calendars, ready to give to families struggling this Christmas.

WDH Roof Tiler, Kevin Towler came up with the idea to reach out to partner contractors to ask if they would be willing to contribute towards donations. He said: “I had the idea when I was in an employee council meeting; I emailed them and was pleased with the response. It really struck home to me when I saw someone I knew at a foodbank recently and I think it is a brilliant thing to do, helping others. I want to say thank you to the contractors, I hope it brings some joy to people who may be finding it harder this Christmas.”

Michael Muxworthy, Managing Director of MRM Solutions said: “As part of MRM Solutions’ work with social landlords, we believe it is only right and fair to give something back to the local communities, therefore it was a pleasure to hand over these advent calendars and we would be delighted to help in future.”

Amanda Sheridan, Cash Wise Team Leader, said: “We were really happy to support the Christmas donation to our local foodbanks, who work tirelessly to ensure that people within the Wakefield district don’t go without food, especially over the festive period. The advent calendars offer a real treat at Christmas to children whose families face a daily struggle to survive financially."
