Checkprint Supporting Fareshare
What a great team we have at Hinckley! Checkprint supporting Fareshare….
Two sets of Checkprint staff helped out at the Fareshare, East Midlands Regional Distribution Centre in Leicester pulling food orders and distributing food shipments to organisations in the Leicester area as part of one of our Leicestershire Cares team projects over the Christmas Period.
FareShare East Midlands redistributes surplus food to charities and community groups across the East Midlands, providing a lifeline to over 10,000 people living in the community. Volunteering opportunities are available at both the FareShare Regional Centre in Leicestershire and the hub in Derbyshire. The East Midlands team work with external agencies, such as the Probation Service, Job Centres and Talent Match to provide essential work based experience for those that are struggling to enter employment. In addition, they work with volunteering organisations such as Leicestershire Cares for temporary staff challenges.
The Hinckley-based Checkprint team also entered the Christmas spirit by collecting toys for the annual ‘Toys on The Table’ initiative. Toys on the Table is a Charity working in the Leicester and Leicestershire area, which provides new toys and gifts at the holiday season for those children, regardless of faith, who might otherwise not receive anything.
Not only did the team collect items at the Hinckley office but also joined other volunteers to wrap presents.
