Outstanding Branding did Reverse Advent!
We have come to the end of Outstanding Branding’s Reverse Advent Calendar and the support we had was phenomenal. Not only were all the staff fully engaged, both customers and suppliers got involved too, which is great to see.
One of Outstanding Branding’s key suppliers Essential Embroidery have been kind enough to donate various food and amenities, all of which will go to The Waterloo Foodbank this Christmas, Dorian Tranter, Sales & Marketing Director of Essential Embroidery said “It’s not just about giving at Christmas this is a year long problem that will take understanding and real effort to put right, but is true what they say that every little helps”
Also 150 pairs of socks have been donated by Kingly for the Manna Society, 200 diaries by Castelli, a food hamper from The Umbrella Company, a huge amount of men and woman’s pants and socks from Laltex Promo and Chocolates and Biscuits from The Sweet People that were used at a Christmas Day dinner!
Kate Sing’ombe, Operations Manager at St George the Martyr Church
, who is helping coordinate our reverse Advent with us said “Thanks so much to all your wonderful staff and suppliers!”
The Outstanding Branding Team took the first round of donations over to The Waterloo Foodbank on Thursday 19th December, Emma Reynolds, Sales Manager of Outstanding Branding said “It was amazing to see how much had already been donated and the foodbank were so grateful, even their mascot Scruffy the dog came over to thank us!”
Homelessness in London is currently at a record high with an estimated 8,500 people sleeping rough around the city. With the #TeamOB HQ being based in London, the whole team really loves to get involved and do as much as they can to try and help our local community.
Sarah Penn, Outstanding Branding CEO commented “At this festive time of year, it’s easy to get caught up in the excitement and forget that not everyone will have the Christmas that most of us do.
It’s incredible how supportive of the idea everyone in OB has been; they’ve really got behind it and it’s wonderful to be able to help people in difficult situations to have a merrier Christmas.”
Charities benefitting from this campaign are The Waterloo Foodbank (waterloo.foodbank.org.uk) and The Manna Society (www.mannasociety.org.uk)
Both Charities work very closely with St George the Martyr Church to help the less fortunate, who will struggle to afford clothing, food and other necessities this Winter.
