Penguin Supplies Ltd have donated 50 Easter Eggs to Bromsgrove based charity NewStarts, hoping to give local families a much-needed boost this Easter. With the financial pressures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, families are increasingly needing to cut back and having local businesses such as Penguin Supplies, donate Easter Eggs demonstrates the supportive community spirit is still going strong.
Community reuse social enterprise, NewStarts, provide invaluable support to people who are overcoming the challenges and disadvantages, providing free furniture, emergency food and household supplies to families and individuals who are in greatest need either on low incomes or in financial crisis. A recent plea for Easter eggs by the charity for the families they support, was answered by Chris Hopkinson of Penguin Office Supplies, with a bumper delivery of 50 chocolate eggs.
Chris Hopkinson, Director at Penguin Supplies Ltd explains, “As a family business, we always have a genuine want to help support the community, particularly now when we see what a struggle it is to provide those little extras in the weekly shop. NewStarts is a lifeline to many families so when they requested support for supplying Easter Eggs we had to get involved. Putting a smile on children’s faces is our aim and they so deserve it for the amazing resilience they have shown during the latest lockdown.”
Marion Kenyon, Chief Executive at NewStarts is thrilled with the donation saying “Many thanks to Chris and the Penguin Team for the donation of so many Easter eggs, it’s very much appreciated. Like all charities, NewStarts have had many challenges during the pandemic but at the heart of everything we do is helping local people at a vulnerable time in their lives. This kind gesture will show they are not alone, and support is available.”
