Reds10 Can: collect for local foodbanks

For the last two weeks, we've been running our inaugural Reds10 Can campaign. Organised by Lyn Howard in our HR team and Joseph Whiteley (Social Value & Engagement Lead), staff across our offices have brought canned goods which are currently being donated to food banks local to each office.


While we were brainstorming the items to focus on, Lyn made the suggestion of cans for this main reason:


‘The food they contain is already cooked or processed in such a way that they can be eaten cold, while still providing valuable nutrients. Not having to heat the food in the cans means not turning on the electricity or gas the hob uses, hopefully going a small way to alleviate the pressures recipients are already facing. And it makes for a great tagline: Reds10 really can!’ – Lyn Howard, HR


The donations are now on their way to the Waterloo Food Bank, Slough Food Bank and Driffield and Wolds Foodbank.

Rebecca Neale, who organised the initiative at our Driffield factory said:


‘A massive thank you to everyone for their donations. We dropped the cans off this morning and had a great chat with Angela, who runs Driffield and Wolds Foodbank. She showed us around the building (a lovely, homely space) and wanted me to pass on her thanks to everyone for their support too.’ – Rebecca Neale, Finance Assistant


Indeed, thanks to everyone who participated. Together, we collected over 230 cans and we hope to do even better next year.


Reds10 Can... work together to ease the pressure on our local communities.
