Yorkshire-based sustainable packaging solutions provider, Parkside Flexibles, has furthered its support to local charity, The Addy, by donating 120 easter eggs to the organisation. The donation follows a charitable contribution made by the Parkside team earlier in the year, for the charity that is close to the heart of many of the packaging supplier’s employees.
Global Sales Director at Parkside, Paula Birch, commented: “Easter is another time of the year where charities are often hit hard, and the team at Parkside is once again proud to support the vital work of The Addy as part of our ongoing drive to contribute to the local community.”
The Addy is a registered charity based in Knottingley, West Yorkshire that supports local disadvantaged children. Known initially as Warwick Adventure Playground, the organisation provides a safe place for children to learn and play. The Addy welcomes thousands of children every year and also isolated elderly community members, but because of the Covid-19 pandemic, it has struggled financially.
The donation of 120 easter eggs was made, so each child could receive an egg in time for Easter, by Parkside team members Richard Hallas, QHSE Manager, and Julia O’Loughlin, Market Insight Manager
Paula added: “The charity is situated on one of the UK’s most deprived estates and needs more support than ever. It plays a vital part in the local community, so we’re extremely proud to lend our support once again. It was amazing to see the smiles on people’s faces despite it being a highly challenging period for many with the ongoing cost of living crisis.”
