Lynda Wheat featured in the Burton Mail this week following her involvement at the New Baptist Church on Derby Street opposite the Briggs of Burton head office in Burton upon Trent.
Lynda dedicates every Thursday lunchtime to support the local soup kitchen with preparing, serving and most importantly engaging with the visitors, and has done so for the past 3 years. Lynda is an integral part of the Briggs team as PA to the MD and has worked at the Burton site for over 30 years. Her positive and warm personality is reflected through her work at the local church, which also includes shoe box collections at Christmas and raffle draws at Briggs, who are keen to support her charity work.
Lynda was interviewed by the Burton Mail sharing her experience:
“I have always wanted to do something like this and when I saw the signs outside the church, I asked my manager if I could support them. My lunch break is usually 45 minutes but the company allows me to have a longer lunch so I can help out. Briggs are really supportive of the soup kitchen – we recently had a raffle to raise money for it. Everyone makes me feel so welcome and if I have to miss my Thursdays at the church I feel really disappointed.”
Briggs are proud to continue supporting Lynda in the future!
