This Christmas, we paired up with our sponsorship team, the Old Leamingtonians Rugby Club, to raise as many donations as possible for the local foodbank.
Green 4 Motor Company have sponsored the local rugby club for the last two seasons, forming a strong relationship between us. This Christmas, we both wanted to support those in need in their local communities, so came together to drive as many donations as possible.
More and more people are relying on support from foodbanks to keep food on the table, as the cost of living crisis continues to push more families into poverty. At the same time, local people have also felt the squeeze, meaning the foodbanks are receiving less donations and are struggling to meet the increased demand. This is why we felt it was more important than ever to gather as many donations as possible to help support those in need this Winter.
After a great combined effort, receiving donations from customers, staff, players and parents, together we managed to donate a large variety of food and other essential items to the Coventry Foodbank.
Commenting on the drive for donations, Scott Craig, the Director of Rugby at the club said: “All of us here at the Old Leamingtonians, and those over at Green 4, felt it was more important than ever to contribute to the local community at a time of year that is so difficult for many. I’m really proud of the amount of donations that we have received here at the club and I’m hoping it will make a real difference to those that need it over this Winter period.”
Both the Old Leamingtonians RFC and Green 4 Motor Company will be continuing to collect donations in the run up to Christmas so if you can, please drop off any spare food items to the OLs Clubhouse on Bericote Road or to Coventry, Leamington or Stourbridge Mazda.
