Altrad’s foodbank initiative continues to make a significant difference

Dear colleagues,

Our continued drive to support the alleviation of food poverty, in conjunction with the Trussell Trust, has been supported by your generous contributions, which have made such a huge difference to the lives of many people.

It is estimated that between eight and ten million people in Britain live with food insecurity, some of the highest figures in Europe, which is currently being compounded further by the impact of COVID-19.

The response from the Altrad team in supporting our foodbank initiative has been remarkable and I would like to thank you all for your contributions. As I have said previously, our aim is to embed this initiative within the long-term culture of our business as opposed to providing people with short-term support.

Could I therefore ask that that we continue to support the scheme – which is needed now, more than ever.

If anyone would like to start their own local scheme, please contact James Holt who is coordinating our activities.

My sincere thanks for your support.

Paudie
