To give something back this Christmas, the largest Humber employer Wren Kitchens and their appliance partner NEFF, have donated £10,000 worth of food parcels and gifts to over 200 families and youngsters living in poverty.
The UK’s number one kitchen retailer based in Barton-upon-Humber has helped to deliver 75 emergency food and essential parcels to Brigg Foodbank, plus 100 electronic tablets and devices to North Lincolnshire Council’s Family Support Services for those who need access to online learning.
The essential parcels are to support those who are in financial crisis and cannot afford day-to-day
living. The meals are quick and easy to prepare for people without access to an oven, plus there are extra special packs with Christmas meals.
Cy Pettit, Trustee of the Brigg Foodbank, said: “Whilst many of us will be enjoying special Christmas meals during the festive period, it’s worth sparing a thought for those who have nothing. We are extremely grateful to Wren Kitchens for supporting many families who are in desperate need during this special time of year.”
The Wren Kitchens transport and head office team supported the packing of parcels for people in need. Over the last three years, the Brigg Foodbank has distributed 750 packs of food to people in the local area and beyond.
The second donation to North Lincolnshire Council’s Family Support Services saw hundreds of digital presents such as electronic tablets and Amazon Alexa’s gifted to families who do not have access to online educational learning. The service provides vital support to children from three up to 25-years-old who are living in poverty, fleeing from domestic violence and young people leaving care.
Sally Swainston, Barton and Winterton Children’s Centre Cluster Manager, said: “We are truly grateful for the support of Wren Kitchens, and they will certainly put a smile on many children’s faces who have very little.
“Each year we help thousands of youngsters to enable them to have the same opportunities and start in life as others, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of generous businesses such as Wren.”
