A CITY firm has launched its latest campaign to help foodbanks in the area.

ISO Quality Services, based in St Johns, has launched its Bingo Box campaign, following on from the success of last year's campaign, which saw more than 700 kilogrammes of food collected for Worcester Foodbank.

The company has launched the drive again this year and is searching for organisations and groups to join in with the campaign, which enables families in need to have as normal a Christmas as possible.

Managing director Jennifer Semini said: “We want our Bingo Boxes to show people in need that they still matter at Christmas. It doesn’t cost a lot to put a box together but the value of each gift is priceless.”

This time, the firm is looking for participants from across the region in a bid to help foodbanks in Malvern and Droitwich as well as Worcester.

Mrs Semini added: “We had a fantastic response to last year’s campaign but our offices can’t accommodate the amount of food needed to help the foodbanks cope this Christmas. We’re delighted that RCA Regeneration in Droitwich, ESP Enigma in Malvern and The Kiln in Worcester have all offered to be collection points, helping us to make this year’s Bingo Box campaign even bigger.”

Worcester Foodbank manager, Grahame Lucas, said: “We are delighted that ISO Quality Services is supporting Worcester Foodbank again, our partnership with them has been very successful and helped us link with their business contacts.

We really appreciate the amazing donations they have generously provided.

This is a great example of the way we are trying to reach more local businesses and organisations to help us at a time when we are experiencing unprecedented increases in the number of people in crisis who are turning to us for help.” To download a bingo card, go to www.isoqsltd.com/bingobox
