UK: Hailsham-based condensate pump manufacturer Aspen Pumps has donated £500 worth of food to support its local community food bank.
A valuable resource for some of the most vulnerable members of society, Hailsham Foodbank is run by 50 local volunteers, working towards stopping hunger in the local area.
Julie Coates, Hailsham Foodbank project manager said: “We are very grateful to Aspen for lending a helping hand at what is an especially challenging time for many of the most vulnerable members of our community.”
Founded in 1992, Aspen has stayed close to its roots in Sussex, despite its notable worldwide growth across four continents, and employs over 100 local people.
“Aspen has grown into a global business but has always maintained strong links with the local community,” commented Aspen’s group communications manager Fay Davis.
The company also avoided the nationwide retail chains by acquiring the food from local shop The Deli in Hailsham.
“We wanted to give something back and offer our support during this difficult time which is having an impact on so many people. It was important to us to also be able to support a local business by buying the food we donated from a local source,” Davis added.
