With 2020 being a challenging year for many, charities need help more than ever. This is particularly true at Christmas. With this Christmas potentially set to be even tougher than others, we wanted to help however we could. That is why we have decided to do our bit for the local community and chose a local foodbank. We also chose to donate to a local charity.
Here at mmadigital, we are strong believers in helping charities, especially those local to us. We decided that, instead of sending Christmas gifts to our panel of legal firms, we wanted to donate to charity. After discussing a few ideas, we decided to focus on some local causes.
We are supporting a foodbank close to our office in Didsbury, Manchester. This foodbank is The Burnage Foodbank. This centre helps people who are in need by giving them emergency food parcels filled with three days’ worth of nutritionally balanced food. They also provide support to local people who are referred to them in a crisis.
We are also supporting Forever Manchester, a charity that raises money to fund and support community activity across Greater Manchester. We have donated some money to the charity as we wanted to support as many local charities as possible.
mmadigital staff Jonny, Sarah, Nicola and Daniel went to a local supermarket to buy items that the foodbanks needed. They went wild in the aisles, picking up tea, coffee, tinned fruit and veg, and even shampoo and toothpaste to help those who are most in need this Christmas. They then dropped the parcels off at the two foodbanks.
From all of us here at mmadigital, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
