Our Christmas Foodbank Support

In the past, we’ve sent both cards and advent calendars to clients, suppliers and partners during the festive period. This year, we wanted to make a real difference with those funds.

Throughout 2018, we made a conscious effort to be more socially and environmentally responsible in the workplace. This resulted in some really big wins. We significantly reduced our use of single-use plastics and moved to a fuel-free waste collection service who have a zero-to-landfill policy.

For Christmas, we decided to continue this great work.

Our local community, the London Borough of Southwark, is one of only three London boroughs with more than one foodbank, showing that we need to support those around us. So, for every 50 clicks we received on an pre-Christmas email newsletter to our contacts, we donated the funds for an emergency food package to our local foodbank in Waterloo, south London.

Thanks to the kind recipients who gave up a quick moment of their day, our donation totalled £281, which the charitable trust were delighted to receive.

Optimum’s Director of Sales Joanne Harrison said:

“Over the years we have committed to supporting various local and national charities, from a baking competition to raise funds for a national cancer charity to doubling the funds raised by staff during their charitable running events. It is therefore fantastic to support our local community with this foodbank donation. We’ll be looking at further ways we can help throughout 2019.”
