Independent retailers have been spreading festive cheer to community groups thanks to some help from Suntory Beverage and Food GB&I.
The soft drinks manufacturer supplied pallets of Ribena Sparkling 500ml to independent retailers to donate to charities of their chosing in the run-up to Christmas. And despite it being the busiest week of the year, retailers took time out of their schedules to transport the drink to charities and groups in their communities.
One Stop Mount Nod donated the drinks to Midland Langar Seva Society which organises a Christmas dinner for the homeless.
Thanks to @SuntoryBF_GBI for their generous donation of a pallet (132 cases) of @RibenaUK sparkling. We decided to give it to @MidlandLangar charity who will distribute at homeless feeds in Coventry and also use them as part of hampers. 🙏 #Seva #RibenaTogether #GrowingForGood pic.twitter.com/Fx8tDlxwIi— One Stop Mount Nod (@OneStopMountNod) December 18, 2020
Nisa Local High Heath offered up the drinks to a variety of local groups including Brushstrokes Community Project which provides meals for 350 families a week.
