A leading East Anglian law firm is rallying businesses across East Anglia to donate essential food and supplies to stop people going hungry this Christmas.
With offices across the East of England, Ellisons Solicitors will be collecting donations for five foodbanks in Bury St Edmunds, Colchester, Chelmsford, Frinton and Ipswich. This year, to help make a substantial difference to people’s lives, Ellisons Solicitors will be extending the goodwill by donating an additional £10 for every box collected up to a maximum of £1,000.
As Christmas preparations begin, the law firm is now calling for members of the public and local businesses to join in by bringing essentials to their offices in the East of England to help support Local foodbanks.
Ian Seeley, Partner and Chair of Ellisons’ Corporate Social Responsibility Committee, said: “Local foodbanks in East Anglia work tirelessly to distribute hundreds of food parcels week after week to those most vulnerable. The selfless dedication of their volunteers is commendable.
“United in a heartwarming initiative to give back to our community, colleagues across Ellisons now invite the public and local businesses to donate to those in our towns and cities who need it most.”
