Supporting the Trussell Trust
The IG Design Group UK Ltd trading company Polaris was delighted to present a cheque for over £30,000 to the Trussell Trust at the South West London Trussell Trust Warehouse in December.
Paul Wilkes MD of Polaris commented “We are delighted with this donation which has come from the sales of the Tom Smith Branded Catering Crackers which included three designs of fully sustainable crackers supporting the Trussell Trust. It is especially pleasing that an item such as a Christmas cracker can provide the support to a charity that is helping those that need food on their table at Christmas. Without the work that the Trussell Trust is doing to stop hunger and poverty there would be families in much worse situations this Christmas.”
As well as the financial contribution we have had food collections at our offices in Cardiff and Newport Pagnell with the food delivered to the local Trussell Trust foodbanks. The generosity of our staff in these collections has been very satisfying and we will continue to have these donation days next year.
The sales this year have been beyond our expectations and we are already planning to continue this support with our 2020 range which we hope will be as successful for the charity. IG Design Group and Polaris are expanding the support in the catering range and new for 2020 into our retail range of products which we are confident will see a larger donation.
