In a year where everything has been different, our Preston office decided to shake up their corporate gifts and spread some Christmas joy instead. Instead of thanking their Aviation Job Search, InAutomotive and Simply Law Jobs clients with their usual corporate gifts, they decided to use that money to provide much needed support in their local community. The money was split between a food bank donation and presents to homeless teenagers, distributed through the Streetlife organisation in Blackpool. Food banks up and down the country have seen an increase in demand since the pandemic told a serious hold back in March. With thousands losing their jobs, and many more furloughed, food banks are anticipating a busy winter period ahead.
Sales Director, Dave Capper, said, “It’s been a very difficult year and we’re delighted to contribute towards these worthy charities.” He continued, “We’re always thankful to our loyal customers, but this year more than ever. We hope our customers are pleased to have had this donation made in their name.”
On top of this donation, the generous team at Preston also came together to do their bit, adding another stack of food and toiletries to the collection. Marketing Executive, Debbie Holden, said, “We do a collection every year and we usually end up with a few boxes, but this year, every single member of the team has given so generously, resulting in our best collection yet. I’m so grateful to work with such a charitable bunch!” Debbie added, “I only have a Citroen, I might have to do a few runs to the food bank because I don’t think it will all fit in my car!”
