Supporting our local foodbank

Every year at MS-UK we get into the Christmas spirit with a team lunch and Secret Santa. It's a great time to come together and reflect on the past year. 

This year we decided at MS-UK to do something in our local community too - so we organised a food bank donation. Over the weeks tins and essentials kept piling up beside my desk and I kept thinking, this must be it? But no, our lovely staff kept giving and I was absolutely thrilled to be able to deliver 36.2 kilograms of items to our local foodbank in Colchester earlier this week!

Over 90% of the food distributed by foodbanks in The Trussell Trust network is donated by the public – everyone referred to them is offered a balanced and nutritious three day supply of food.

You can find out more about them on their website. When I went along to drop off our donation the staff were really helpful and were thrilled we had pulled together to do something in our area!

A big thank you to all the staff at MS-UK for getting involved - hopefully we have begun a new tradition!
