Each year we send out hampers to our corporate partners as a thank you, this year Mortgages for Business and ourselves teamed up with Offham-based charity Spadework to create and deliver our hampers.
Spadework is a local charity which provides day care services and meaningful work-based opportunities for more than 100 adults with learning and other disabilities. Over three days the IT room at Spadework’s seven-acre site was used by trainees, volunteers and staff to pack the hampers, which will be sent out nationwide.
Jenny Barrett, Marketing and Research Director at Mortgages for Business, said:
‘‘Every year we hunt for special gifts to send as a thank you to our corporate partners. We came across Spadework only recently but immediately we knew we wanted their wonderful hampers. Not only do they make perfect presents but by supporting this very hands-on charity we can give back to the local community.’’
David Whittaker, CEO at Keystone Property Finance said:
‘’Each year Keystone Property Finance sends out hampers with local produce as corporate Christmas gifts and Spadework is a brilliant local charity which have produced a range of gorgeous hampers. We are thrilled to be able to support he work that they do.’’
Spadeworks is situated on a 7-acre site in the pretty village of Offham, Spadework’s garden center, farm shop and 50 seat cafe is open to the general public 7 days a week. Find out all about their work here.
