Henry Boot spreads Christmas cheer with UK-wide food banks pledge

18th December 2020

Henry Boot PLC has pledged its support to some of the most vulnerable members of society this Christmas by donating thousands of pounds to food banks across the UK.

The leading land promotion and property development business has pledged £200 each to 13 organisations located in the Group’s national operating areas, including Sheffield’s S2 Food Bank network, Batley Food Bank and Leeds Food Bank in West Yorkshire, Feed Manchester in the North West and Glasgow City Mission in Scotland.

The Group made the commitment as part of its Christmas campaign to ‘share its support’ around the UK in the regions it operates in to support the ‘vital’ work of food banks to rally around vulnerable people nationwide.

Darren Littlewood, Group Finance Director at Henry Boot PLC, said: “This is our gesture of thanks for the incredible work done by organisations such as food banks across the UK during the toughest of years – it felt like the right thing to do and will support so many vulnerable members of society.

“During this time, the need to support the wider community and those less fortunate has been heightened, and we’ve already had great feedback about the difference these donations will make to so many people.

“We’ve been delighted to give back to a variety of different causes throughout the year as a Group of Companies and look forward to pledging more support in 2021.”
