Charity donation provides essential food this Christmas

This year our annual charity donation goes to the York Foodbank which provides food and assistance to those in need.

The families and individuals who use York Foodbank have been referred by care professionals to prevent them from having to go hungry. All of the food they provide has been donated by people in the local community before being sorted, packed, and distributed by volunteers. It truly is a case of local people feeding local people.

Partners’ director, Monica Green, said: “With recent reports suggesting that York has one of the highest number of searches for food banks in the UK it felt appropriate that we support  York Foodbank this Christmas to try and help ease the pressure many families feel at this time of year.”
The York Foodbank was launched in 2012 by The Trussell Trust as part of the UK Foodbank Network. Today, it operates out of four centres across the city with an aim to meet the needs of those who are experiencing a crisis situation. The charity believes no one should have to face going hungry, and provides three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people in need.
The Partners Group employs eight people at its office on The Mount and works with a wide range of national and local businesses, and will be celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2018. Past charities that have been chosen to receive Partners’ annual Christmas donation include The Special Care Baby Unit at York Hospital, Home Start York, Woodlands Resource and Respite Care Centre and York Mind. Last year the business lent its support to local youth homeless charity SASH to assist its SASH Active programme of activities for the young people it works with, including a special trip to London.
