Leighton Buzzard business donates food and money for the festive season

Peli BioThermal, the global name in temperature controlled packaging, pledged its support for a community charity helping the homesless this Christmas. The Leighton Buzzard based business presented food, clothing and personal care products, donated by staff at Peli BioThermal, to the Leighton Linslade Homeless Service.

The charity, which helps provide safe shelter for people needing emergency night time accommodation and additional support in the community, also received a Christmas cash boost of £100 donated by the company.

Donations were delivered to the Black Horse Night Shelter which is the hub of the charity offering accommodation for up to 12 homeless people and is a base for the Leighton Linslade Community Food Bank. The donations were presented in five 28L CoolGuardTM boxes, part of Peli BioThermal’s portfolio of products.

Fiona Adams, Peli BioThermal Director of Worldwide Finance, said: “Peli BioThermal is delighted to support this worthy charity and help provide some much needed support for disadvantaged people over the festive period.”

Rosie George, Volunteer and Education Coordinator from the Leighton Linslade Homeless Service, added: “We have an open door policy to help anyone who may not be without a place to sleep but unfortunately, that place is not their own. Such insecurity, sofa surfing, or living in temporary accommodation causes considerable stress and we aim to offer appropriate and supportive help.

“The demand for food parcels is increasing.The donation made by Peli BioThermal came as an enormous surprise and one that will help us to ensure families are provided with bigger food parcels than usual.

“We will be busy during the next few days making food parcels and plan to provide extra food to help over the Christmas period. We are a small organisation with big hopes to help all who come to our door. The generosity of people frequently overwhelms us but the surprise of the huge boxes and the envelope of cash was extraordinary. I would like to say on behalf of all who will benefit from the donation, a very big thank you.”
