Generous financial donation from AWE’s Charity Fund

13th July 2020

We have received a generous donation of £1000 from AWE’s Charity Fund – thank you!

We are so grateful for the support we have received from AWE and its staff over the years through both financial donations and contributions to food collection. Since 2015 AWE has supported the Trussell Trust’s Christmas Food Collection and donated on average 1.5 tonnes of food each year.

AWE’s Charity Fund is set up to support staff in their charitable fund raising and promote good causes in the local community. Many of AWE’s staff also give their own time to support their chosen charities. AWE’s Charity Fund Secretary, Michele Maidment, said: “We know that the current situation has impacted on families and individuals locally, so are pleased to support the great work of local foodbanks in helping overcome food poverty.”

Phil Thomas, Basingstoke Foodbank’s Chair of Trustees, commented: “This amazingly generous donation to the foodbanks in Basingstoke and Tadley from everyone at AWE is a fantastic demonstration of community spirit, and will help us at the foodbank to continue to supply crisis food to those most in need in Basingstoke and surrounding areas. Well done!”
