Derwent London staff raised £1,200 and delivered gifts to the elderly in Fitzrovia yesterday. Coupled with generous food donations from Derwent London catering partner, The Good Eating Company, the cash raised allowed staff to create some amazing food hampers and purchase much appreciated gifts.
The initiative was undertaken in conjunction with the All Souls Clubhouse in Fitzrovia whose Wednesday Lunch Club for older people Derwent London also supports.
Derwent London, which launched its voluntary £250,000 funding programme in May this year, awarded funding to Fitzrovia Community Centre, Fitzrovia Youth in Action, All Souls Primary School, All Souls Clubhouse and Fitzrovia Trust. In addition, the company is supporting a number of the charities through its staff volunteering programme. The company will consider further applications for funding from Spring 2014.
