Frank Stephenson & Son Funeral Directors in Beverley are collecting Easter Eggs which they will donate to the East Yorkshire Foodbank.
Manager Lewis Northen says that by running this incentive it enables them to do something they are very proud of. Helping people at some of the most difficult times.
Speaking to HU17.net he said;
“We as a team chose to support the East Yorkshire Foodbank as it gives hope to the local community struggling with poverty.”
“Being at the heart of the community engagement is where we always want to be and trying to put a smile on someone’s face at Easter through everyone’s generosity is so worthwhile.”
“Our philosophy has always been about helping people at the most difficult times of their life. This is no different.”
“There are many people in our local area who are struggling daily to make ends meet or even put food on the table for their families.”
“That is why this incentive is so worthwhile for us. Because it enables us to carry on doing what we are so proud to do every day. That is helping people at some of the most difficult times of their lives.”
Lewis says that any type of Easter Egg will be gratefully received no matter how big or small it may be.
In recent weeks the charity has also launched an incentive to try and raise money to help them fund the operational costs.
Foodbank Grateful For Support Shown By Frank Stephenson & Son Funeral Directors
A spokesperson for East Yorkshire Foodbank said;
“We would like to say a massive thank you to Frank Stephenson & Son Funeral Directors for thinking of us.”
“What they are doing will certainly go down well with our clients and especially the children. Currently, we feed 40 children locally each week.”
“For them to approach us and do this is a great act of kindness, one we are all grateful for.”
Anyone wishing to support their campaign should drop off an Easter Egg at their office on Minster Moorgate.
Frank Stephenson & Son Funeral Directors will be accepting eggs up until the 2 April. They will then present to the charity.
