Simon Hipgrave, Garador’s Managing Director, said: “I’m really pleased with the variety of food donated by the team here at Garador; everything from rice and beans through to tinned vegetables has been donated. The Lord’s Larder provides a great service in Yeovil to those in need and we are delighted to support them.”
The charitable gestures have gone well into December too, with a festive raffle, Christmas jumper day and a skittles evening , all for Garador staff, with more than £285 going to St Margaret’s Hospice.
Simon added: “We would like to thank all of the companies that donated prizes, which helped us to run a successful raffle and most importantly, raised lots of funds for St Margaret’s hospice.”
