Aiming to bring a dash of Easter magic to disadvantaged local children, Yorkshire-based flexible packaging specialist, Parkside, has donated 138 Easter Eggs to local charity organisation, The Addy.
Based in Knottingley, West Yorkshire, The Addy is an organisation that seeks to support local children in need. Initially known as Warwick Adventure Playground, The Addy provides a safe place to learn and play, welcoming thousands of children each year.
Local to Parkside’s UK headquarters and providing a valuable resource for children in the community, The Addy is close to the heart of many of the company’s team. The donation was presented by Parkside team members Sarah Cadwallader, Debbie Hargrave and Julia O’Loughlin.
Sarah Cadwallader, Sustainability Coordinator at Parkside, commented: “We are delighted to support The Addy once again, and help make a difference for kids in our local area. We believe in creating change not just on a global level, but in our community too, however we can.
“The Addy is a wonderful organisation and an incredible resource for vulnerable children. In addition, the organisation also welcomes elderly individuals struggling with loneliness and isolation, which really underlines its role as a ‘spiritual hub’ for the surrounding area.
“Easter can be a very challenging time for charity organisations and families alike. This is amplified in the current cost-of-living crisis where even something as simple as an Easter Egg can become cost prohibitive for families. Situated on one of the UK’s most deprived residential estates, The Addy’s work is extremely important and as a team we want to help them put smiles on faces – and a donation of Easter Eggs is a perfect way to do this!”
