Tipton-based Dolphin Lifts Midlands has made a ‘substantial donation’ to the Black Country Foodbank.
The donation was the idea of Teresa Farrington, wife of Managing Director Lee Farrington.
She explained: “When our daughter Olivia took part in harvest festival at school, all the children took food into school for the foodbank and when she explained what amazing work they do I decided we would do something similar at work.”
Everyone at Dolphin Lifts Midlands was asked to bring in a donation and the results were amazing with staff bringing in everything from milk and soup through to toilet roll, rice, pasta and much much more.
Farrington, along with Holly Truss and Bev Turner then loaded everything into a van and delivered it to the foodbank‘s warehouse on Albion Street, Brierly Hill.
From there, it is sent out to 23 distribution centres around the Black Country.
She continued: “Seeing at first-hand what amazing work everyone at the Foodbank does makes you appreciate how lucky you are to be able to take having food at home for granted.”
The company’s managing director, Mike Cook, wanted to thank everyone involved for their work.
He said: “Donations such as this are invaluable to us and I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Dolphin Lifts Midlands, especially Teresa for organising such a generous donation.”
Adding: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our staff for their generosity. We pride ourselves on being a local business which supports the local community and I hope what we have done makes a small difference to people who may be going through tough times over the festive period.”
