EMPLOYEE GIVING TO SUPPORT TRUSSELL TRUST AND SALVATION ARMY
Christmas can be a difficult time for families and this Christmas, the RS Clare team’s charity of choice was the Trussell Trust, a nationwide network of foodbanks providing emergency food and support to people locked in poverty. Last year, food banks in the Trussell Trust network provided a record 1.9 million emergency food parcels to people in crisis, with more than half a million of these going to children and it’s estimated that this winter, every 9 seconds an emergency food parcel will be given to people in crisis.
Trussell Trust rely on support in the community to help make sure that no one is left hungry and on 16th December 2020, we made a heart-felt donation of £1,065, 50% raised by our people and matched by the company, to support the most vulnerable people in our communities.
RS Clare are also long-standing supporters of The Salvation Army and this Christmas we were pleased to donate £400 to support their much needed work in our communities.
