Volunteering in our local community

Close to our office in Skelmersdale, the Trussell Trust run food banks that  provide crucial food supplies and support those struggling to get back on track. Whilst at the food bank there’s time to have a cup of tea and a chat with trained advisors, who can support with finding the root cause of the situation, and provide awareness of other support networks available.

Bev Hayman, a Customer Service advisor based in Skelmersdale, has demonstrated an incredible commitment to ensuring colleagues have opportunities to volunteer at their local Trussell Trust food bank. These food banks are run by volunteers, and rely on donations of food, money and time. Since 2017, we’ve been providing support to the Skelmersdale Trussell Trust food bank by having two colleagues available to help each week.

None of this would be possible without Bev’s work with the Trussell Trust and the support of her manager in making sure that there are always volunteers available each week. This work helps to ensure that this valuable community resource stays open for those in need.

Bev also organises fundraising for other amazing charities through her role at The Bank, and her creativity and motivation inspires others to get involved. Together, the team in Skelmersdale have raised for a range of charities, such as Macmillan Cancer Support, Liberty House, West Lancashire ARC’s, Centrepoint, The Prince’s Trust and Dog’s Trust. Well done to Bev and all of our Skelmersdale colleagues for all their hard work! You are truly making a difference.
