Blank

During the lockdown, Restore Harrow Green was called to help a customer in the publishing industry move premises. A big part of what they were required to move included a large quantity of new but unwanted books destined for destruction. Instead, they took them into storage and from there they got in touch with a number of hospices asking if they were interested in receiving them. The response was overwhelming, and they managed to donate all the books to the hospices. As a result of this activity, they managed to save the books while helping four charities raise valuable income by selling them in their shops.

Bidfood

For the very first time, Bidfood joined forces with competitor Brakes to deliver over 5 million vital food packs to the clinically vulnerable shielding though the pandemic, in the biggest food redistribution scheme since World War II. From April to the end of July, Bidfood teams made more than three million deliveries of vital food supplies to over 337,000 households. They asked their employee’s children to draw pictures to include in the care packs, to boost morale of recipients. Their teams received an incredible number of thank you letters and messages from those overwhelmed with gratitude for this crucial lifeline.

Bourne Leisure

In March, Bourne Leisure closed its doors to guests. They opened their doors to the most vulnerable in society and offered a home to those who needed shelter, either due to homelessness, their homes being abroad or through working for the NHS. They also donated all perishable food and drink to local community food banks, families and care homes. Both COVID and furloughed team members were encouraged to take part in volunteering efforts for the local community. Overall, they have strengthened relationships with their local communities and enabled those families helped to remain safe during a very uncertain time.

Fooditude

During the lockdown, Fooditude repurposed their 20,000 sq’ commercial kitchen to deliver meals to isolating and vulnerable residents in Southwark – one of the worst-hit areas by COVID-19. From 3rd April to 31st July they served 37,178 meals and partnered with 16 different charities, tenants and residents associations and sheltered housing units, along with other businesses, the local fire brigade and Southwark Council. By working with so many local partners to reach a common goal, this project brought Fooditude closer to its community than ever before – something they hope will continue long after the pandemic has eased.
