Six staff took a day out of their office to volunteer at Foodbank.
The team soon got to work unloading about a tonne of stock donated by local churches and a large supermarket. The task was to sort it first into products and then into date order, ensuring nothing is wasted before moving onto the stock room.

Lisa Shell enjoyed the experience of team volunteering. “It was

Amarpeet Sahota was inspired by taking part “I’ve spare time to give on

Regular volunteers Lynn and Bryan were delighted with the team’s efforts. “We can’t thank you enough. It would have taken us at least a week to do what you’ve all achieved in a day. Please come back again!”
