A recruitment company in Shrewsbury has raised £500 for Shrewsbury Food Hub by wearing Christmas jumpers every Friday through December.
The team from recruitment business DMOS People are wearing Christmas jumpers every Friday in December to raise money for the Shrewsbury Food Hub.
DMOS People director, Stuart Danks, said, “We started this tradition last year as a way of getting festive and sharing some goodwill with a fantastic local charity that does so much good in our local community.
“The cost of living crisis has hit many families hard which makes the work of the Shrewsbury Food Hub even more crucial. The DMOS team have all donated to our Christmas jumper fund, which the business has topped up to a £500 donation for the Food Hub.
“We’re proud to have donated over £25,000 to charity in 2023. We’ve supported the Shrewsbury Food Hub, Climbing Out, Lingen Davies Cancer Fund, The Rural Charity, and The Movement Centre. And we hope to raise even more in 2024!”
Shrewsbury Food Hub is a charity that stops food waste to protect the environment and strengthen the local community. Volunteers collect surplus food from shops, manufacturers and farms and share it with local groups.
Tammy Bloodworth, Food Hub Manager, said, “What a brilliant idea for a fundraiser! We can’t thank the lovely people at DMOS enough for their support. They have raised a fantastic amount of money for our charity. It is thanks to supporters like them that we can continue to redistribute food to our community.”
DMOS People provides temporary and permanent recruitment across the West Midlands and mid-Wales, with its headquarters in Shrewsbury.
