Thanks to the generosity of staff and suppliers, BD Group delivered 190 Christmas hampers to residents of four hostels across Barking and Dagenham just before Christmas 2020. The hampers were entirely made up of treats and food donated by BD Group staff and our suppliers.
The team delivered the hampers containing food, toiletries, Christmas treats, books, toys, nappies and baby food to residents of Butler Court Hostel, Boundary Road Hostel, Riverside Hostel and Brockelbank Lodge. The residents were overwhelmed to receive them, and were very grateful for the generosity of everyone who made a donation, or gave up their time to make up and deliver the hampers.
Our suppliers were very generous in supporting this campaign and BD Group would like to thank J H Cleaning Services for donating money which we used to purchase sweets, Global Pharma Direct for donating masks, hand sanitiser, selection packs and a variety of cakes, biscuits and sweets, Thomas Ridley Foodservice for donating chocolate, Christmas puddings and orange juice, TWO Services for donating selection boxes and Capital for donating washing up liquid.
BD Group and its staff are committed to supporting the local community and people in need, and this was just one example of our teams coming together to help those who need a bit of extra support or Christmas Cheer.
