Rugby colleagues' alternative advent calendar helping feed families in need

Ian Hughes 10th Dec, 2017   0

AN ALTERNATIVE advent calendar is helping stock Rugby Foodbank.

Rather than opening doors and receiving a treat, staff at the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) have been making a donation to Rugby Foodbank.

The calendar has been running for the past six weeks at the firm’s Railway Terrace headquarters, and donations will be delivered this week to help families in need during the festive period.

Chief Executive Jon Prichard said: “Most of our staff in Rugby are from the local area, or surrounding towns, and they are passionate about giving back to the local community. Rugby Foodbank is practically on IChemE’s doorstep, so it’s important that we support them, particularly during the festive period, which can be a hard and emotional time for low-income families.




“To see everyone involved in our alternative advent calendar initiative is really encouraging, and I hope it helps those who need it most.”
