In preparation for the fast-approaching Easter holidays, our CSR team has been hard at work making sure that Statesman Travel extend their charitable acts into 2015 and beyond.
At a time of the year when we begin to put names forward for Statesman’s next annual charity, we did a run around the office collecting Easter eggs.
Six big carrier bags and a ten-minute walk later and these eggs were delivered to the St Andrew By The Wardrobe Church, our local Hackney Food Bank, from where they were passed on to local children who wouldn’t normally have the chance to enjoy such simple pleasures.
This food bank, along with many others, is run by the Trussell Trust. Their campaign 'More Than Food' will help foodbanks to widen their support beyond emergency food, allowing for the provision of other services and seeing them develop into community hubs. As a result, people in need will be able to access emergency food and a range of support all in one location. Trussell's foodbank volunteers offer a listening ear, whilst signposting clients to local advisors and helping to address the underlying causes of their problems. Click here to find out more.
