In the lead up to the festive period, Screen and it’s staff decided it wanted to give back to the community.

On a search for a worthy local cause we discovered a wonderful charity based in Suffolk; home to Screen.

Our chosen charity was FIND, and here’s why.

FIND was established as a registered charity in 1990 by Maureen Reynel MBE. They help those that are deprived of a minimum standard of living, whether they are single, families, lone parents, children, elderly, sick, disabled or homeless. They offer free of charge food, household items, furniture, nursery equipment and nappies, beds and bedding and, when available, cookers, washing machines and refrigerators. When appropriate, this includes personal support too.

So with a substantial ‘leg up’ donation from Screen the staff set out to match the donation from the company of much needed groceries for FIND to distribute to needy families and individuals.

With donations at a high during Christmas the charity when told of our collection thanked us but requested a New Year delivery as traditionally donations generally fall after the festive break.

So with the our new year return to the office we packed up the collected items and headed to FIND’s headquarters and distribution centre where our donation was gratefully received.

Whilst there we had the pleasure of witnessing all the incredible work the charity’s volunteers do in sorting the donations ready for distribution.

We think FIND is a charity worth talking about and indeed supporting so if you would like to know more about the amazing work they do and to offer support then please visit their website at www.findipswich.org.uk

May we also take this opportunity to wish you all a happy and prosperous New Year.
