After reading about the plight of a local food bank reaching out for donations over the weekend, it’s Heron Foods to the rescue with a donation of hundreds of food items!
Hulls Homeful Helpers are doing a fantastic job reaching out to elderly residents within the Hull community who are in need of basic living essentials. We’ve chosen to support the amazing work these volunteers are doing by donating a van full of essential food items.
In a time where the world finds itself in a state of great uncertainty, the key priority for us is to ensure that in this time of need, we continue to provide support for vulnerable individuals and families within their local communities.
Heron Foods Managing Director, Tony Dobbs, said:
Today, our team filled a van with staple items, in the hope that we can really help those in need who are currently either unable to leave their houses or are finding empty shelves in their local supermarkets.
We would like to take the opportunity to reassure our shoppers that we are continuing to work our absolute hardest to ensure the shelves are stocked and that basic essentials are available for everyone in all of the communities we serve. We would also like to thank our hard-working store staff and ask that you appreciate and respect them as they continue to serve their local community.
We’re thrilled to be able to donate £500 to local amateur basketball team, the Hull Hornets, to assist them in purchasing new playing kits for their two junior teams.
The Hornets have been putting a sting in the tail for local basketball for nearly 30 years, with a rich history of playing success including winning the Hull League in 1996/7 and Hull Cup in 1994, 1996 and 1998.
The Hornet’s West team coach, Andy England, says:
The donation will ensure we can keep on growing the number of players who compete in our two junior teams and it will help raise the profile of the Club in general.
As a club, the Hornets aim to promote increased fitness levels and skill development of all its members, in a safe and friendly environment that is open to all. We’re committed to advancing basketball at a local level to help strengthen participation.
Good luck from everyone at Heron Foods – we hoop you have a great season!
We have today announced a three-year front-of-shirt sponsorship deal with our local football team, The Cottingham Rangers Football Club, which is the biggest sponsorship deal in the club’s 46-year history.
As main sponsor to the Club’s 28 teams and 450 players, our famous logo will now take pride of place on the front of the Club’s iconic yellow and blue striped kits through to the end of the 2021/22 campaign.
Heron Foods managing director, Tony Dobbs said:
We’re delighted to make this donation and support the Club. We strongly believe in the importance of sport within the local community, so we’re thrilled to be able to give back in this way. We would like to wish everyone connected with Cottingham Rangers Football Club all the best for the coming seasons.
Cottingham Rangers Football Club chairman, Stephen Liddell, said:
Our partnership with Heron Foods ensures we now have a guaranteed income over the next three years ensuring we can continue to build and deliver community football to children in Cottingham and surrounding districts of Hull. On behalf of everyone playing, watching, managing and coaching we’d like to give our thanks to Heron Foods, your support is greatly appreciated.
