STAFF from the School Uniform Shop, Fit and Denim Nation kept busy during the pandemic helping the City of Hereford Rotary Club with their family food parcel scheme. 

Managing director Luke Conod said he was so proud of his colleagues that while they were furloughed, they volunteered to help pack food parcels.

The staff have been presented with a certificate of appreciation from Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland by Nick Tecza, President of the City of Hereford Rotary Club.

“The success of the Family Food Parcel Scheme is due to the many volunteers who helped source, pack and deliver the 3,075 parcels that were delivered to families during the lockdown,” said Mr Tecza.

Will Price from the School Uniform Shop said: “We just wanted to help our local community in a time of crisis.”

“As a club, we recognise that the success of the scheme would not have been possible without the local businesses and charities who donated financially, Shack Events who loaned a warehouse and volunteers who so willingly gave their time,” added Nick Tecza.

“The club is extremely grateful to all who worked with them to support local families.”
