The team at Scimitar would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year.
It’s been a strange old year. With COVID-19 affecting all industries and individuals in extraordinary ways, we are so grateful to our clients, existing and new, for their continued support and business throughout the year.
This December, we’ve decided to do something a little different. Instead of sending Christmas presents to our clients, we’re giving back to the community and donating a lump sum to a worthy cause.
We’re proud to be donating £1000 to the Worcester Food Bank initiative, ensuring that those who need much needed help over the festive holiday can do so.
Why the Worcester Food Bank?
In the financial year 2019-2020, 1.9 million three-day emergency food supplies were given to people in crisis by the Trussell Trust, 700,000 of which were children. In the last five years, Food bank use in the Trussell Trust network has grown by 74%; a worrying statistic.
With a cost of around £1.50 per meal, our £1000 donation will help provide around 667 meals (as well as toiletries, sanitary products & cleaning essentials) for families over the festive period.
Ruth at the Worcester Food Bank said: “We would like to say a massive and heartfelt thank you to the team at Scimitar for their extremely generous donation of £1,000. The money that they have donated means that we can buy the items we need when we need them, and will help us to continue to serve our clients in the new year, where traditionally donations taper off. The support from local businesses like Scimitar are what enables us to continue to support the people of Worcester”.
Let’s hope 2021 is a better year for everyone, and we look forward to speaking with you in the New Year. Should you need to speak to the team in the mean time for any new quotes or existing orders, use the button below.
Stay safe. There’s a lot to look forward to in 2021, and we’re excited to reveal all in the New Year.
On, we honourably mention cancer charities we work with that are indefinitely trying to make the world a better place for us all.
