Collecting for Mid Cheshire FoodBank

This Christmas our staff donated and collected items for the Mid Cheshire Food Bank appeal. Staff began collecting in November and delivered 8 boxes full of food and household supplies on 11th December ready for Christmas.

Food Banks across the country require donations more than ever over the Christmas period, and all at Howard Worth were happy to help. The Mid Cheshire Foodbank is able to provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred when in crisis. They are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

Thank you to all our staff who got involved at our Northwich and Nantwich offices.
