During National Volunteers Week…
Ormskirk Marks & Spencer joined others in their company by volunteering in their local communities as part of the #Spenditwell campaign.
M&S Ormskirk have been working with the Birchwood Centre in Skelmersdale for the last 12 months. They have been amazed at the work they do in our community and so, during National Volunteers week, 12 M&S Ormskirk staff rolled up their sleeves to support them in serving food at two of the community centre locations.
Store Manager, Andrea said “It has been rewarding to see what happens to the waste food we donate once it leaves the store. Birchwood are extremely passionate about reducing food waste and using excess food to create healthy, affordable meals for the local community. They also create opportunities for volunteering and build strong links with the area.
We’re really excited about their new mobile pop up cafe, which we have helped with, therefore enabling Birchwood to take the Junk Food Cafe on the road “
Make it Matter is part of the recently launched M&S campaign ‘#SpenditWell’. The campaign is about inspiring people to make every moment special by focusing on the things that really matter in life.
