On a monthly basis between now and June a group of our staff will spending the day volunteering at local charity, Readifood.
Anne Laflin, David Lamont, Rebecca Ledgerwood, Kayleigh Chapman and Sophie Clarke made up our inaugural team recently and worked alongside regular Readifood staff and volunteers to help sort, store and pack donations in the charity’s warehouse, based on the outskirts of Reading town centre.
Established more than 25 years ago, ReadiFood is an independent food bank providing food parcels to those in need in the greater Reading area.
ReadiFood currently delivers over 140 Emergency food parcels every week to families and individuals, either directly to homes or via referring agencies.
Blandy & Blandy LLP’s marketing manager David Lamont, also chair of the firm’s charities committee, said: “For a number of years our firm has supported Readifood through an annual donation delivered to the warehouse. When we last visited in January this year, we felt that we could also contribute by giving our time, which around 25 of our staff will be doing between now and June.
Our thanks to Alison and the Readifood team for making us feel
