A finance manager from 2 Sisters Food Group’s factory on the Sandycroft Industrial Estate in Deeside has set off on a journey to deliver generous donations to a shelter in Slovakia for Ukrainian refugees.
More than £16,000 worth of donations from the factory is being driven to Camp Zilina in Slovakia by Jane Hall, along with her husband Terry and son Jacob.
Over the past few weeks, Mrs Hall has organised collection points for donations, which have been provided by 2 Sisters’ colleagues, partner school Ysgol Sandycroft C.P, scout groups and suppliers. The donations include womens and childrens clothing, IT equipment and canned meat and fish.
2 Sisters Food Group has matched the monetary value of the donations of over £8,000.
Mrs Hall said: “I wanted to do something to help those caught up in the terrible events in Ukraine. After the amazing success of our team at Scunthorpe, I emailed them for some advice. Once we had a plan the donations came rolling in.
“I’m so proud to work at our Sandycroft site. The response from our colleagues and members of our community has been overwhelming.
“I would like to offer a special thank you to our haulier MJ Refrigeration Transport, which is making all this possible with the extremely generous donation of the van, petrol and shuttle costs.”
