Knutsford retailer Booths offers community support this Christmas

By on December 14, 2017

Knutsford retailer Booths is supporting a range of local community projects this Christmas.

In addition to donations to local Food Banks and the provision of collection points throughout the year, Booths are also partnering with Smooth Radio North West this Christmas on a mission to drive donations to Food Banks in store.

Colin Porter, Booths Customer Experience Development Manager, said: Homelessness, financial issues or just circumstances that have fallen upon you can make the basics in life a challenge and I am personally delighted and proud to say; we are going to help make a difference to local people and families this Christmas and throughout the coming year.”

With three stores in Cheshire and Greater Manchester, another community partner for Booths is Cornerstone who provide educational support, medical check ups and one to one mentoring in Manchester and Salford. They also have a ‘Safe Haven’ night shelter and food bank.

The firm also works with The Bread and Butter thing, a charity that saves lives by providing a discounted food service to help low income families. Booths support the work of the organisation through food donations and edible produce.

Mark Game, Founder of The Bread and Butter Thing, said: “So many of their members have so little to get by on, simply because of circumstances beyond their control like having to pay too much for rent or electricity or not having access to loans that are affordable. Christmas is the most stressful time of the year for our members. We will be doing all we can to help reduce the burden and feeding as many families as we can. With the help and support we receive we are able to feed over 500 families across Manchester. Their support is invaluable to us.”
