Briggs give back to the YMCA food bank

During the month of April, we gave back to the YMCA Food Bank charity in Burton on Trent. Following a Briggs Community Sponsorship & Support Fund application, our team collected much needed monetary and food donations from across the business.

  • Members of our team brought in food donations from local supermarkets containing many long life food and drink items.
  • We raised £150 from our Easter Raffle which went towards a food shop from Tesco.
  • We presented a cheque of £300 towards the YMCA’s ongoing food purchase costs.

The YMCA advised in October 2021 they were giving out 5 food parcels a day, at present they are now giving out 20. All of our kind donations and support will go towards ensuring families across Burton have access to food and drinks throughout the week. Paula Senior, Fundraising & Partnerships Manager at the YMCA said;

I would like to say a massive thank you for your kind recent food donations as well as £300 to support our food bank. We truly cannot do what we do without the support of others and this donation will have an impact on the individuals and families that we support as well as the services that we provide to the local community. On behalf of everyone at YMCA Burton, thank you very much for your generosity and thoughtfulness.
