Generous staff at Carlsberg spent the weeks in the run-up to the Christmas collecting goods to distribute to good causes in the town.
Staff and customers from the Carlsberg distribution depot in Spalding Road joined forces to help a host of good causes.
Depot manager Paul Jordan said: “As a company, we like to play our part in the community, and our staff and customers are very pleased to be able to build on the success of previous year’s collections”.
The goods donated by Carlsberg were distributed by the Len Pick Trust.
The organisations to benefit included The Salvation Army, Toolbar, Bourne Wellbeing Group, The Butterfield Centre and Alison Pettit, who organised the Christmas day lunch at Bourne Abbey Church.
Trust chairman Ranna Patel said: “We were very pleased to co-operate with Carlsberg and their staff once again by helping to distribute their annual Christmas collection.”
Again this year, Robyn Warnes whose father works at Carlsberg asked her workmates at Fesa UK in Spalding to add to the collection resulting in further boxes of fresh produce, which were donated to the Abbey Church Christmas dinner and also to Digby Court.
Ranna added: “It is a wonderful demonstration of the community spirit that is alive and well in Bourne and we are absolutely delighted to help the staff and customers of Carlsberg by distributing the goods that they have worked so hard to collect.
“We know that their efforts mean so much to so many people at this time.
“An additional feature this year was the kind donation of a number of bird boxes made by a member of Carlsberg’s staff, which we were pleased to deliver to the Willoughby School and to the two primary schools Bourne Abbey and Bourne Westfield.”
