Like many businesses, we are keen to look creatively at how we can continue to support charities virtually. So instead of our usual tradition of sending wine to our placed candidates at Christmas, and following a tough 18 months for many families across the UK, the BIE team voted to support FareShare this year.
FareShare redistributes surplus food to more than 10,500 frontline charities and community groups, and provides enough food to create a million meals for vulnerable people each week. In the past year, FareShare helped 10,542 charities and community groups and 1,108,064 people were provided food supplied by FareShare.
With the pandemic still affecting so many peoples’ lives, we are humbled to be able to support a cause so close to home and to donate to FareShare in place of sending wine to our candidates - helping people who need it most this Christmas.
