Fareshare, Britain's 'Most Admired Charity'.

Greetings,

Some very exciting news not least for us humble franchisees: Fareshare has won the 'Most Admired Charity' Award for 2010!

It's really great to be involved with such a necessary, popular scheme. Our very own Manchester depot distributed over 200 tonnes of food to worthy benificiares across the Greater Manchester area since we set it up in partnership with FareShare National 18 months ago. FareShare Manchester has already supported nearly 70 beneficiary organisations who provide meals to the needy, those on low incomes, the homeless and in food poverty.

As a result of our work in the North West we have generated a great deal of positive publicity with help from partners like Foods North West. We're now beginning to raise awareness of the issues around in-date food surplus, much of which is currently wasted. We're also working to raise the profile of sustainability issues and support the healthy eating agenda in relation to food. For more info contact Paul Beswick on 0161 223 8200.

Hearty congratulations go to Tony Lowe and everyone involved in the FareShare charity.

Onwards & upwards!

Lucy.
