Supporting our community at Christmas

supporting our community

Helping those in need is something that we feel really strongly about here at WeldLag.

When we saw that the local Salvation Army was looking for donations to their Annual Christmas Appeal, all of the team made the decision to pitch in and help make a difference.

Team Effort

A good old fashioned whip-round raised a generous sum to spend on a shopping dash for all of the tinned goods and toiletries desperately needed by the Salvation Army Preston to stock their food bank.

On receipt of our donation and many others like it, the Salvation Army Preston were able to provide 267 families with food hampers over the festive period. 

A Helping Hand

In total, 1134 bags full of food and toiletries were handed out to those in need.

The Salvation Army Preston gave this statement:

“We were quite worried at one point of our appeal as some tables were bare! But the donations then flooded in and we were able to provide all families referred to us with food or gifts, and we have had a wonderful start to January’s food bank (another very busy month for us!)”

At WeldLag, we feel very privileged to be able to help such a worthy cause and remain dedicated to the ongoing support of our community whenever we are able to do so.
