News: FR supports Food Bank

Posted on 22nd May 2019

Every Friday for the past 6 months, the employees at First Recruitment Services Haywards Heath branch, have been partaking in a ‘Dress Down Friday.’ The proceeds raised by this were then donated to their chosen charity, The Trussell Trust Foodbank.
The Trussell Trust Foodbank provides emergency food and advice to those who are living below the poverty line in the UK. Their aim is to provide a minimum of three days nutritionally balanced emergency food and supplies to individuals and families who have been referred due to the critical nature of their situation. As well as providing food, the volunteers also offer advice and try to resolve the crisis they face.
The money raised by First Recruitment Services was used to purchase a variety of food and everyday essential items, which once donated and weighed at the charities warehouse came to a whopping 27kgs!! As you can see from the photo Lauren, Mark and Lisa, had a great time dropping off the food. This is a truly wonderful charity to donate to.
