Our partnership with Leicestershire Cares see us take part in a variety of community-focussed initiatives throughout the calendar year and in the run up to Christmas five volunteers from Ford & Slater Leicester volunteered their time to help out at a local foodbank.
The B-Inspired foodbank operates from St Peter’s Church in Braunstone and provides food parcels year-round to local residents in need and at Christmas time the food parcels are even more appreciated.
Donations of food were received from Leicester Market, local businesses and members of the public and Ford & Slater joined around 15 other volunteers to help sort all the donated food into 200 parcels.
Jackie Penney, Leicestershire Cares Coordinator at Ford & Slater, commented, “All the volunteers worked really well as a team and we are pleased we could play a part in supporting this fantastic cause. It was hard work but a very rewarding and humbling experience.”
