It Stacks Up…Supporting the Cambridge Self-Help Food Drive

[fa icon="calendar"] May 9, 2017 12:07:54 PM

FoodBank Fireplaces for Cambridge Self Help Food BankWe are always looking for creative ways for our company and staff to get involved with our community and, with the Spring Food Drive last month, Dimplex employees were enthusiastic about contributing to the local food bank. Our “cantest” encouraged Dimplex teams to build fireplaces, while we waited for the food to be collected and delivered to the Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank.

The Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank provides food and support to individuals and community groups within Cambridge and North Dumfries to encourage self-sufficiency and independence. They strive to help people develop their skills and ensure that everyone has access to the necessities of living, especially healthy food.

Every year, they hold regular events to help raise awareness, find volunteers and secure food and other donations for their programs.

During the month of April, the Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank is running their Spring Food Drive. Our employees were pleased to contribute and got competitive in arranging their donations. We’d like to share some pictures with you.
