WORK EXEPERIENCE

We are now fully insured and prepped for supporting young people access somewhere to carry out their work experience placement.

Diamond Hampers will be offering year 10 students the opportunity to come and work for us and learn the basics. 

We look forward to welcoming them and sharing what we do within our organisation.

Easter

This Easter, we sent out almost 100 Easter Eggs, colouring packs and activities for children to enjoy over the Easter holidays!

We are always committed to ensuring we deliver smiles as well as much needed support across the district!

 

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!

April stats!

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

We supplied 10,080 meals to people through our food hampers, across the wider community.

We have rescued an incredible 7.8 tonnes of food waste, which has generated approximately 18,687 meals! This is through our redirected waste in our Pantry store!

We saved a whopping 16,744kg (PPM) of Co2!

We prevented an incredible £6,278 worth of food from burning in landfill!

We have helped 10 families improve their situations, by finding longer term solutions to shape brighter and more sustainable futures.

We continue to work in friendship with Food For Nought and 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!
