My name is Claire Cootes and I am the Site Excellence Manager and Sustainability co-ordinator for Bidfood Hoddesdon and this is my first sustainably update on Plate2Planet.
Following on from the extremely successful charity donations last year, over the Christmas period we decided to arrange a collection for the Homeless Charity Streets2Homes based in Harlow.
This was a fantastic cause to support and as a depot we should be extremely proud of our achievements we collected 6 big bags of warm winter clothes for the charily of which was donated to them on the 8th February 2019.
The staff were extremely grateful for the donation as pictured below with some of the bags of clothes.
We also donated a large box of toiletries which included shower gels, deodorant and shampoos which were also greatly appreciated on the 11th February 2019
We also donated 5 hot and cold drinks flasks these will be handed out to individuals in need.
I would like to say a massive thank you for everyone that got behind this campaign and donated, all your support has help make a massive difference to the people that are affected by homelessness and those trying to help them on a day to day basis.
