A scheme to provide essential food supplies to families in need has been given a helping hand by business volunteers.

Nine members of the human resources and solutions team at Procter and Gamble (P&G) helped to sort and pack parcels at The Bay Foodbank.

The team, from P&G’s Cobalt Business Park offices, sorted food donations into categories and expiry dates, before filling the shelves of the North Tyneside foodbank and making up bags and boxes of food, ready for delivery.

It was part of P&G’s Community Matters programme.

Team member Gemma Carlie said: “It was humbling to see the great work that the foodbank does, and the extent to which users across the region are affected. Working at the foodbank also gives you a great appreciation of how small donations of the things we take for granted can make a real difference.”
