Another fantastic month for our Rakem Group charity lunch! This month we split the money between three different causes, all nominated by our Charity Committee!
Our first cause was Maggie’s Tots, a playgroup held every Tuesday at a church in Heywood. The playgroup is run by a group of volunteers who were overjoyed by the donation and plan to spend it on brand-new toys for all of the children who attend.
Our second charity was Avid’s Angels Cat Rescue, a Bolton-based charity that helps cats all around the Northwest. Avid’s Angels provide a safe and nurturing environment for every cat and kitten that comes into their care. Their team of passionate volunteers works tirelessly to ensure that each cat receives the love and attention they deserve. Founder Katie even brought in a special guest – Willam!
The third charity for the month is Trust House Bury. As the holiday season approaches, our Charity Committee, Scott Tilley decided to nominate Trust House Bury as the recipient of some of the money this month. Trust House Bury is an organisation that supports the community by offering a community cafe, a food pantry, advice and guidance, and holistic support to all of those who need it.
The food pantry is a small shop on the premises, where those who need to use it can do their shopping, take things they need, and fill up a bag with up to £20 worth of shopping for just £2.
Tyler Wilson from our Marketing department and Chief Chemist Scott Tilley from our technical team had the opportunity to visit Trust House in Bury, where centre manager Katie Jenkins gave them both a tour, and explained how the money we donated will be going towards food packages for everyone who uses the food pantry, to make sure they get a special Christmas care package so they can still have a hot Christmas Dinner for Christmas Day!
