Pride for Mobile Mini Team After £20,000 of Donations Distributed
Mobile Mini has raised approximately £20,000 for foodbanks across its nationwide network of branches through physical donations and a JustGiving page as part of its Mobile Mini Meals campaign.
The firm launched the charity pledge in November 2020 to collect donations such as food, toiletries and other essential items, as well as monetary contributions, which have now been shared with those in need.
A 20ft container was filled with items at each of the firm’s branches and head office, with staff, customers and the wider community contributing to the cause. Through its JustGiving page, Mobile Mini team members, customers and the public also raised over £5,000 to be distributed evenly between each branch’s local foodbank.
Andrew Thompson, Mobile Mini’s managing director, said: “We wanted to support the communities we work in, and with foodbanks seeing an unprecedented rise this Winter, Mobile Mini Meals was the perfect way to do so.
“The team, our customers, and the public really got behind the initiative, with a fantastic number of items dropped off at our branches. We’ve overwhelmed with the support we were given, especially given the circumstances of such a difficult year.”
Andrew added: “As a business, it’s so important that we support such well-deserving causes that work so tirelessly for the communities they operate in.
“On behalf of Mobile Mini UK, I want to say a huge thank you to our team, our customers and all those who supported this initiative. With your help, we’ve been able to make a difference to the communities we serve across the UK.”
