Three local charities have thanked the Young’s Seafood Limited staff for their Easter treats, delivered last weekend to Women’s Aid Grimsby, St Andrew’s Hospice and Harbour Place Day Centre.
Last week the staff at Young’s Seafood Limited pooled their efforts to gather over 240 Easter eggs to donate to three of Grimsby and North East Lincolnshire’s vital charities. The Young’s Seafood team paid a visit to their charity of the year, Harbour Place Day Centre, to deliver Easter eggs to the project’s beneficiaries before welcoming representatives from St. Andrew’s Hospice and Women’s Aid Grimsby to the Young’s Seafood head office, Ross House, to receive their eggs in time for the Easter weekend.
Harbour Place Day Centre provides daytime support for Grimsby’s homeless and other vulnerable members of society with the overall aim of improving their health and well-being. Robin Barr, Project Director, said: “Harbour Place would like to thank Young’s Seafood again for their generous and continued support. Our shared commitment to the local community makes for an important partnership, and Young’s Seafood’s support is very much valued.”
St Andrew’s Hospice was founded 35 years ago and since then has helped thousands of people across Grimsby with life limiting illnesses. Jane Whenham-White, Head of Income Generation and Marketing at St Andrew’s Hospice, commented: “We’re thrilled with the Easter Eggs and we’d like to thank the staff at Young’s Seafood for their kind donation. We love Easter here at St Andrews and appreciate the chocolate additions to our celebrations!”
Woman’s Aid Grimsby provide vital services to women and children from across North East Lincolnshire who are seeking refuge from domestic abuse. Sally MacCormack, Volunteer Manager at Women’s Aid Grimsby commented: “On behalf of Women’s Aid I would just like to Thank Young’s Seafood and all of their staff who so generously donated lots of lovely Easter eggs to the families that were with us over Easter. I can assure you they were very well received. We had lots of chocolatey faces all around and huge smiles. Thank You so very much for your kindness.”
Pete Ward, Chief Executive of Young’s Seafood Limited, commented: “This Easter at Young’s Seafood we wanted to do something special for our local charities. We’re delighted with the huge response we’ve had from staff who have donated Easter Eggs in their hundreds and have made it possible for us to make this small gesture of our support and appreciation for the fantastic work Harbour Place, St Andrew’s Hospice and Women’s Aid Grimsby do all year round.”
As part of the Young’s Seafood Limited award-winning Fish for Life Corporate Social Responsibility Programme, Young’s are committed to supporting the communities in which they are based. And, following on from the success of last Easter’s donation to St Andrew’s Hospice, Young’s staff decided that this year they would collect even more eggs to donate to worthwhile causes.
