BGL Group rallies round Knottingley foodbank after raid
Colleagues donated funds to replenish supplies stolen by thieves
Colleagues at BGL Group’s Wakefield office have rallied round a local foodbank after it was targeted by thieves thought to be cashing in on panic-buying.
Claims advisor Robert Bednall and team leader Mohammed Ali arranged for £180 in tuck shop proceeds to be donated to Knottingley Foodbank after it was raided on March 18.
About £500 of donations, including toilet rolls and sanitary products, were stolen from a storage container belonging to the foodbank at a time when there is more demand than ever for its services.
Robert said: “When I heard they may need to shut because the supplies had been stolen, I wanted to do whatever I could to help. Hopefully this will go some way towards enabling them to continue to support the most vulnerable in our society at this difficult time.”
