The funds will be split across the two organisations to provide emergency food for vulnerable people and to support the Youth Hub in their Christmas celebrations and 2023 team-building activities.

Sian Manning, Community Trust Manager at Whitehill & Bordon Community Trust, commented: “We’re extremely grateful for the support from Annington, particularly at this time of year when families can be faced with the decision of having food on the table or putting on the heating. Our Youth Hub is located at Building 94, a space provided for young people in our community to spend time with friends and learn new skills from local organisations. We’ve previously had pottery lessons, graffiti sessions and musical classes, and rely heavily on the support of our local community. The donation from Annington will help maintain our future activities, which so many of our young people benefit from.”

Stacy Whitehead, Marketing Manager at Annington, added: “With energy costs rising and everyone feeling the cost of living impact, we hope our support of Whitehill & Bordon Community Trust can be felt all year round. Supporting local communities is a priority for Annington and we’re glad to donate to such worthwhile causes in Bordon.”
