A time for giving in Festive Farm world

13.12.2018

Our Farmers in the UK and US are all doing their bit to give back over the festive period.

 

Across Farm London, the Camden Foodbank was chosen as this year’s Christmas charity. In each of our Farm facilities, we have placed a lovely looking donation box, which is ready and waiting to be filled to the brim with food, toiletries and more for the Camden Foodbank to give out to people this Christmas. Our operations resource manager, Karen Smith and Senior Post Supervisor, Rosie Beauvais have prepared and driven Farm London for this charitable donation and will be depositing the goods once on Friday 14th December, and a second time on Friday 21st December, just in time for Christmas!

Thank you to all our lovely Farmers and clients who have already donated to this great cause! A special mention to Storyvault Films for their generous £200 donation which has been turned into a big online shop!

Farm Bristol have also chosen to donate to a food bank this festive period, by donating to the local East Bristol Food Bank. We have collection boxes in both the main office, on Whiteladies Road, and also at the pop up at Embassy House, to collect as much food and necessity items as possible. The Farm Bristol team are going to do a big drop just before Christmas, on the 21st, to ensure as many people receive food or necessities over the festive period. East Bristol Food Bank are an amazing charity that give those donating a list of what the most needed items are at the moment, so we can really help get people the items that they need and want the most at this time of year.

Farm North have chosen a similar charitable donation campaign, but instead doing a reverse advent calendar this December. Never heard of a reverse advent calendar? It’s simple, instead of having a piece of chocolate or a gift every day for ourselves each day leading up to Christmas, our Farm North team are giving an item each day to others. The items collected are being donated to two local food banks; the Burnage Food Bank and the Streford Food Bank.

In other news, it’s beginning to look a lot like… Christmas Jumper day! We are proud to be participating for yet another year in #ChristmasJumperDay on Friday 14th December in aid of Save the Children. Farmers will be ditching their overalls and pulling on a Christmas jumper for a great cause. Save the children helps bring essential food, healthcare and education to protect and enable millions of children around the world. 

There’s #PowerinYourPullover !
