Following the success of its 'Bingo Box Challenge' last Christmas, where the firm encouraged other city businesses to donate boxes of food, ISO Quality Services wanted to step in to help the local charity once more, and has worked with other local organisations and groups to join in with the campaign, which enables families in need to have as normal a Christmas as possible.
The company, based in St John's, hasn't let the ongoing COVID restrictions deter it from supporting those less fortunate, and has encouraged other city businesses to donate boxes of food to the city's foodbanks.
Businesses this time round were asked to get involved by donating to the shopping budget. ISO Quality Services then completed a ‘Trolley Dash’, ticking items off the Worcester Foodbank’s shopping list.
With the support of these businesses and three overflowing trolley’s later, ISO Quality Services were able to spend £770, equating to 31 boxes of food for those in crisis. Other businesses kindly took boxes directly to the food bank increasing the total to 50.
Bryony Richards, Marketing Assistant said: "We can all agree that 2020 has not been what any of us expected it to be, but despite this, QSL is delighted to see so many companies participate, particularly whilst dealing with their own problems during this difficult time.
"We would like to thank every company and individual that not only donated but supported the campaign."
