Staff at Avara Foods in Brackley have done their bit for charity by holding a winter clothes drive for local homeless people.
Team members held an appeal throughout March, during which dozens of coats, jumpers and jogging bottoms were donated, with the company also purchasing sleeping bags to bolster the final haul.
The collection was split between two charities that supply homeless and vulnerable people with warm, practical clothes during the winter months. One of them was the Hope Centre in Northampton, whose community fundraiser Tanya Haji-Miller said: “We are extremely grateful to all the generous staff from Avara Foods for their donations. Without support like this from members of our community, we would not be able to help the homeless and most vulnerable people in our town.”
Avara Foods’ Brackley site manager, Rob Bywater, added: “As a company Avara Foods is always looking for ways to contribute to the local community. Our team at Brackley is motivated and passionate, and I was so pleased at how enthusiastically they took up the challenge of helping these two great charities.”
