Trussell Trust Food Bank Donation

Each year GDS supports a charity, voted by the staff, which they support with a range of fundraising activities throughout the year. This year (2021) GDS chose the Trussell Trust.

The Trussell Trust support a nationwide network of food banks and together they provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, whilst campaigning for change to end the need for food banks in the UK. 

Even though circumstances made it difficult to arrange the usual fundraising activities, staff still donated 8 large boxes of food to support the charity. These contained advent calendars for the children, Christmas selection boxes (as requested) and a whole host of long life foods. The company also made a separate donation from the wholesaler Costco.

We also raised £600 running a Christmas raffle (prizes donated from the company) with all funds being donated to what we feel is a terrific charity. The charity is always looking for volunteers in various capacities, so if you would like to contribute or just find out a little more about what they do please visit 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the kind donations of the staff & GDS and to Pam Bailey our Operations Manager for organising our efforts.
