Foodbank Donation Points at Booths

Foodbanks at booths

All year round you can find foodbank donation points in Booths stores.

A scheme pioneered by our very own Colin Porter, we’re partnered with an assortment of local charities from donation hubs, who distribute donations to where they’re needed, to kitchens who can make use of our surplus food. A selection of our partners even work from within the stores themselves, in space reserved for them in our warehouses. Colin says:

Supporting anybody who is in need is core to the Booths values and we want to help more people and families who are going through challenging times. Homelessness, financial issues or just circumstances that have fallen upon you can make the basics in life a challenge and I am personally delighted and proud to say; we are going to help make a difference to local people and families throughout the coming year.

We are partnering with Smooth Radio North West this Christmas on a mission to drive foodbank donations in Booths stores.

Partnering with Smooth Radio North West means we have the opportunity to reach a wider audience and as such help more people, we want to make a real difference to local people and families this Christmas as well as throughout the coming year.

This year’s Christmas appeal ‘Christmas in Your Community’ is just fantastic and allows us as a brand to really connect with our customers and local community centres through what we do best, FOOD. The Smooth radio appeal allows us to reach a greater audience and as such help more people.
