Sytner Group dealership treats those giving something back in Derby this Christmas

Sytner Group dealership, Derby Audi, recently invited volunteers from Community Action Derby to the showroom for a festive treat to give back to those giving back this Christmas.

Sytner Derby Audi invited 40 volunteers to the dealership to enjoy a Christmas dinner, with all of the trimmings, to thank them for their hard work and dedication to Food 4 Thought and contribution to the community.

Kate Painter, HR Manager at Volkswagen Group Division, said:

“Derby Food 4 Thought Alliance is a fantastic organisation that supports people in the community who are experiencing food poverty.

“It’s great that we were able to give something back to those who spend their time throughout the year helping others and providing support for those who need it, especially during these really tough couple of years.”

The day saw volunteers greeted with a reception drink before being seated in style to reward them for everything that they’ve done over the past two years. The day also saw all volunteers leave with a gift from Father Christmas and one lucky volunteer won a luxury hamper to take home and enjoy this Christmas.

Community Action Derby is a registered charity providing support and guidance for voluntary and community groups. The organisation runs training courses to help individuals learn new skills and have a range of resources to help run a voluntary or community group effectively.

The Derby Food 4 Thought Alliance is a part of Community Action Derby and was initially created to respond to the immediate needs of people in Derby at the start of the pandemic in March 2020.

Demand for the alliance has since been increasing and over 2,000 food parcels are being handed out each month. Currently 241,868 items have been distributed via its central storage unit.
