Team Support Community Supermarket

By 31st January 2023News

We are incredibly happy to share this photo of some of our team donating over £1,000 worth of food to their local community supermarket.

Our CNH Industrial team started raising money for local food banks a few years ago, and this Christmas they had a raffle and donation boxes to raise money for Laindon Community Supermarket.

Spotted by a member of the CNH HR team, the fundraising effort increased.

John Wright, Angel Hill Catering Services Manager, said: “We know that right now even small amounts can make a big difference to people struggling to pay their bills. So, we decided to hold a raffle, but when Elisa at CNH saw what we were doing, we were able to raise even more! Together with the CNH team we raised over £750.

“We then spoke to one of our local suppliers, Barleylands Farm Shop, and they said they could help us donate even more and through heavily discounting all the food we bought, we were able to donate over £1,000 worth of food and household supplies.”

The supermarket offers cheap food at a cut-price rate to those struggling to afford food and pay increasing bills.

Henry Watts, Managing Director of Catering, said: “I couldn’t be prouder of John and the team at CNHI helping their local community. In this case, it really demonstrates the positive impact we can have by working with our clients and suppliers as one team.”
