Housing group Flagship Group helps feed those in need with donations at Christmas
Housing group Flagship Group raised the roof after an appeal to collect 16 boxes for foodbanks saw the firm more than double its target.
In the end 41 boxes were donated to a range of organisations, including St Martin’s Trust in Norwich, The Woodbridge Salvation Army, Newmarket Open Door, and the Norwich, Mid Norfolk and Thetford Foodbanks.
As well as collecting non-perishable food items the teams across East Anglia also decorated the boxes with deputy chief executive Helen Walsham judging the winning design.
Hannah Worsley, project manager at Norwich Foodbank, said she was delighted by Flagship’s continued support.
She said: “Flagship’s donations last year helped us to provide the equivalent of 187 meals to local people in crisis – this is such a help to us, as December is our busiest month; we expect to give out over 1,000 food parcels during December this year.”
