Mercer & Hole volunteered at MK Foodbank
A team from Mercer & Hole Chartered Accountants Milton Keynes’ office volunteered at the MK Foodbank on 1 December.
General Practice Partner, Steve Robinson was joined by Wendy Bambrick, Caroline Valentino and Laura Kirtland at the food bank’s distribution warehouse, where they learnt more about the charity’s picking and packing process. The team then helped to make food parcels for families, children and individuals and collected donations from several local supermarkets. Later in the day, the team visited one of the MK Food Bank’s drop-in clinics to get first-hand experience of how important the emergency food service is to its clients.
Steve said: “We are delighted to continue our support of MK Foodbank and to spend time volunteering with the charity. As our Milton Keynes’ team make regular donations to the charity, it was interesting for us to see behind the scenes of how these items are stored, sorted and distributed to those who use the service. We now know to donate more fruit juice as this is in short supply.”
Mercer & Hole also have a festive foodbank campaign, where each of our four offices has a ‘Reverse Advent Calendar’ foodbank box. The idea is an advent calendar with a twist; in order to receive your chocolate treat, you must donate an item to the foodbank. We will then donate the items collected to the local foodbank, in the case here, Milton Keynes Foodbank. It’s a fun idea that gets everyone talking!”
Mercer & Hole have an established relationship with MK Foodbank and have an ongoing collection for donations in Milton Keynes. To learn more about the work of MK Foodbank, please visit http://mkfoodbank.org.uk/
