The Watford branch of Berry Recruitment and the local Rotary club joined forces to deliver a bumper donation to the town’s food bank – in time for Christmas.
Watford Mayor Peter Taylor and Cllr Rabi Martins – also a Rotarian – were there when the parcels were donated.
Berry Recruitment Group – a national company – made donation to a number of food banks around the country.
In Watford the staff have strong links with the Rotary club and together they teamed up to help provide food for those in need.
Carol Grainger, who manages the branch, said: “It was very generous of our company directors to make a donation.
“In Watford we try and do our bit for charities within our community and this was a great opportunity to help others.
“While Christmas is a time when people do give generously, there are people who need help with their meals all year round.
“We were able to supply many types of food and being from Berry Recruitment we made sure there were some berries included.
“It was very humbling to see what basics the food bank had, and to play a small part in this worthy and necessary charity.”
The food bank gives out 10 tonnes a month, but in January donations can drop by half.
