Spalding, Bourne and Boston staff take part in 10km Dawn Walk for Samaritans
Staff at a food manufacturing firm have raised hundreds of pounds for a good cause.
A group from Greecore’s sites in Spalding, Bourne and Boston took on the Dawn Walk for Samaritans to support those affected by mental health issues.
Two groups of Greencore colleagues set off on a 10km sponsored walk from the Greencore Spalding site on Wardentree Lane and Elsea Park in Bourne.
The team, some of whom have been affected by the impact of suicide and mental health issues, raised £425 with this challenge.
The Greencore site in Spalding has also hosted a series of ‘Great Food’ events, to thank staff. Butcher Trevor Sharpe provided a hog roast, while Snaith Flowers provided sunflower decorations.
Simon Titchner, General Manager at Greencore Spalding, said: “It is important for us at Greencore to work closely with our local community, both in supporting the needs of people and in helping to support other local businesses. I’m proud of our colleagues that have committed to supporting charity work and volunteering. It is also important for us to recognise and thank our people for the work they have done in helping to feed the nation, which is why it was such a pleasure to be able to host our Great Food events in September.”
Greencore, which is recruiting for 135 roles at its Spalding and Boston sites, was also encouraged by the improved results for the last financial quarter.
CEO Patrick Coveney said:“We are pleased with the further improvement in our business in the fourth quarter, in particular the increase in demand across the business and our strong underlying cash generation. I am also excited by the progress we have made in the past quarter on our sustainability journey.”
