Employees from Abbey Logistics’ depots and offices in Liverpool, Golborne, Bromborough and Newark have been collecting money and food donations for food banks. Donations have been made to food banks local to their depots in the run up to Christmas.
Organised by Liam Murray, a fleet apprentice currently studying for his Team Leader for Transport Manager Level 3 apprenticeship, Liam has planned, and project managed the collection on behalf of Abbey.
Abbey’s teams donated more than £650 and hundreds of pounds worth of food and other essential items over the last few weeks, which were taken to local food banks at the weekend.
Food Banks across the U.K. have seen a dramatic increase in demand this year and they are a vital source of support for families facing hardship. Food bank use is expected to increase even further in the run up to Christmas and Liam and Abbey were keen to support organisations based in the communities where Abbey Logistics operates.
“We are aware of the tough times that many families are going through right now, and hopefully our donations will go some way to making the Christmas period a little bit easier for them.
“My colleagues throughout Abbey have been fantastic and we’ve raised more money and gathered more donations than I ever expected.
“Food banks across the country play a vital role and make an enormous difference to people, especially during the winter months, and we are pleased we have been able to help in some small way with their efforts”.
Thank you to everyone at Abbey who donated and to Liam for all his hard work and Liz Woodward, Rebecca Courtley, Sam Myles, John Carey and Anna Gajowiak for all the effort they’ve put in at their depots in making this collection such a success.
