D2 Continues its Support of The Mustard Tree

The past 12 months have been hard on everyone and in some circumstances, due to the loss of jobs, many have plummeted into homelessness.  The Mustard Tree are a homeless charity based in Manchester that focus on tackling both the causes and consequences of poverty and homelessness.

Since 1994 they have created opportunities for people to help themselves through providing practical support, friendship, connections into work, and improvements to health and wellbeing. They also provide food through their food bank and resources to help make a home through their Community Shops, they offer creative programmes to aid recovery and encourage aspiration.

To help support the Mustard Tree during this time, our employees and senior management team have been remarkably generous with donations to the Mustard Tree’s ‘Fill a Crate for Christmas’ campaign. With more people than ever relying on the Mustard Tree’s services – for everything from the weekly shop to Christmas presents for friends and family – the Mustard Tree are calling on support from individuals, businesses, and community contacts to help address this increasing demand, by putting together collections of food, toys and other items in their ‘Fill a Crate for Christmas’ campaign.

Our Infrastructure Operations Director Simon Blair delivered multiple bags of food shopping, toys, and gift sets through the Mustard Tree Ancoats branch last week. Along with our functional teams delivering and ordering online shopping and making cash donations for the charity. The Fill a Crate for Christmas campaign aims to help provide food and support for those in need this Christmas, and we hope, add a little Christmas cheer.

We give a huge thank you to all who got involved, the donations will mean the world to those who receive them.
