UKCM spreads Festive spirit with its bountiful food bank donation
Winsford-based UK Container Maintenance (UKCM), a leading container repair and refurbishment company, has organised a generous collection to support members of the local community via the Mid-Cheshire Food Bank.
Benevolent colleagues at the firm dug deep to donate a substantial variety of essential food items, addressing the increasing demand for food bank services. Understanding the importance of collective responsibility and community support, UKCM took the initiative to gather donations that are crucial for the wellbeing of families facing financial difficulties.
The abundance of contributions included an assortment of items such as jars of jam, long-life fruit juices, coffee, desserts such as jelly and rice pudding, long-life milk, custard, tinned goods, mashed potato, instant noodles and even some delightful Christmas treats.
The Mid-Cheshire Foodbank, in connection with The Trussell Trust, is run by volunteers and operates out of local hubs such as churches, community facilities and mobile van services in car parks. The Foodbank which opened in 2012 supports over nine thousand people with food parcels.
Victoria Whitaker, National Contracts and Marketing Manager at UKCM commented: “Here at UKCM we recognise the challenges and hardship faced by many families in our local community, especially during the cost-of-living crisis.
We are proud to support the local Food Bank and to contribute essential food items for those who need them. We hope our donations will provide some relief and bring a smile to the faces of families across Winsford this Christmas.”
Established in 1998 and now part of the Impact Environmental Group (IEG), UKCM is dedicated to refurbishing all types of waste and recycling containers. UKCM works across the country offering, waste companies and local authorities, mobile repairs, as well as factory-based services at its head office located, in Winsford, Cheshire.
The process brings old, and often unwanted, waste containers back to life instead of them going to scrap. The business model – refurbishment over replacement – is simple.
