Spar has donated a year’s supply of home starter hampers to charity, Lancashire Mind.
The donation will provide a helping hand to the new tenants supported by Lancashire Mind, who are moving into the charity’s tenancy properties during 2022.
The hampers are designed to ease tenants into their new homes with a wide range of essentials such as dried food staples, confectionary, tinned foods, kitchenware, hygiene items and cleaning products.
Spar’s UK primary wholesaler for North England, James Hall & Co, has donated the hampers on behalf of the symbol group.
This is the latest development in James Hall and Lancashire Mind’s partnership, after the company’s decision to distribute goody bag items for the charity’s ‘Mental Elf 5K Fun Run’, taking place on December 5.
Additionally, James Hall has also funded the production of mental health and wellbeing awareness booklets with Lancashire Mind aimed at secondary school children struggling post-pandemic.
“I’m delighted that we have been able to strengthen our partnership with Lancashire Mind as the charity provides incredible support to people across the Red Rose County who have a range of mental health and wellbeing conditions,” James Hall marketing manager Tom Murphy said.
Lancashire Mind tenancy management lead Jeanette Colclough added: “We’re very grateful for the continued support of Spar through James Hall & Co and this donation of essential items is the perfect home starter pack to get our new tenants up and running
“Often people who come to us arrive with nothing, so to have a welcome pack of goodies waiting for a tenant when they move into one of our properties is very helpful. It really will contribute hugely to a positive start to their journey with Lancashire Mind.”
