Nationals!

As you all know, we have previously won awards in the SME Huntingdonshire Business Awards – including a gold!

Because of this, we have been entered into the nationals in Wembley this year! 

One category is Business Hero – which is decided entirely on public votes! – so please do support us if you can and pop over and give us your vote.

It has now been confirmed that we are also finalists in the Community Business of the Year Category and Lockdown Leader!

We are very excited!

We need you!

We are seeking volunteers to support our ever busy and ever growing organisation.

Can you spare a couple of hours each week to help us deliver emergency food parcels, or maybe you can spare us a day for our stores?

Get in touch if you can.

Fundraising with Diamond hampers

This month, our incredible volunteers ran the kitchen at a local community free family, fun day.

We provided affordable food to hundreds of people and helped to raise over £700 for our organisation.

It was a huge success!

Halloween Treat Trail!

Bring your little ones along for a safe trick and treat event in Huntingdon town centre this year.

We will be participating and have a stall outside the front of our Attic store, with extended opening hours!

Christmas Event!

We have our huge Christmas launch starting on 30th September.

This is when our Christmas stock will be available to purchase, we will have free tea and coffee and cakes for sale!

Come and see us, grab some bargains and help us raise vital funds!

New Boxing Incentive!

Our partners Diamond Champions CIC are looking for sponsors in exchange for advertising and promotion of their businesses – get in touch via their Facebook page. 

As joint director of this brand new non-profit organisation, along with the amazing Lee Simpson, our core focus will be to provide a safe space to promote mental health and well-being.

They will provide affordable boxing based fitness opportunities for all, in a safe and controlled environment.

They will provide support for young people leaving care, employment and training opportunities and promote healthy body and mind. 

Please do keep your ears and eyes peeled for this exciting initiative!

August stats!

Just like many others, August was hugely successful in terms of the support we could offer and the people we managed to help.

We supplied 9,072 meals to people through our food hampers, across the wider community.

We have rescued an incredible 10 tonnes of food waste, which has generated approximately 19,989 meals! This is through our redirected waste in our Pantry store!

We saved a whopping 22,487kg (PPM) of Co2!

We prevented an incredible £8000 worth of food from burning in landfill!

We have helped 11 families improve their situations, by finding longer term solutions to shape brighter and more sustainable futures.

We continue to work in friendship with partners Social Echo, to help eliminate the need for food aid and strive to live in a world where EVERYONE can afford to shop independently!
