ITP continues community support with Hucknall Food Bank donation

The team at ITP Aero UK has donated £230 to the Hucknall Food Bank, thanks to spare Christmas hamper sales.

ITP Aero UK employs around 670 people in Hucknall, as part of a wider global business, headquartered in Bilbao, Spain. Every year, ITP Aero gives each employee the gift of a Christmas hamper in the run up to the festive season.

In mid-late January, there were still some spare hampers left over in Hucknall, so the team decided to sell these to anyone that was interested, in order to raise funds for the local food bank.

The Hucknall Food Bank, based at the Under One Roof centre on Vine Terrace in Hucknall, supports over 135 local people and their families on a weekly basis. Run entirely by volunteers, this fantastic community resource is a lifeline to many.

After consultation with Yvonne Campbell who heads up the Foodbank, ITP Aero opted to donate the money it had raised, so volunteers could buy the items they specifically needed. ITP employee and fundraiser, Jayne Hardy, paid a visit to meet Yvonne and hand over the cash donation.

Ian Williamson, General Manager at ITP Aero UK, said:

“We’re really pleased to be able to support our local Food Bank. The team do a fantastic job and provide much-needed support to so many individuals and families locally, that we will always do whatever we can to help.”

The money donated will be used to bolster all the food parcels with key items that are always included in the packs for recipients, but not often donated.

Yvonne Campbell, Project Manager for the Hucknall Food Bank, said:

“We are always so grateful for any donations we get. There are items we have in abundance, such as beans, tuna and tinned tomatoes, but there are some things that we always need, but often have in short supply – such as custard, rice pudding and Fray Bentos pies.

“We are so thankful to the team at ITP Aero for their support and for their donation, which is incredibly useful and will enable us to bolster the stocks of the items we so desperately need.”

ITP Aero will continue to support the Hucknall Food Bank this summer, by coordinating a drive for donations of those key items that are needed every week.
