On Tuesday 24 September, the HALCO team came together to support the Hereford Food Bank.
For the first time ever, 4 of the aisles in the Hereford warehouse were converted to bowling alleys and the HALCO staff were split into 4 teams. Various cans of food from beef casseroles to baked beans were stacked in each aisle and the bowling battle commenced - the winning team would be the one that knocked all their cans down first! Congratulations to Team 'Bean' who emerged victorious after a nail-biting finale against Team 'Peach'.
The generous collection of food donations from HALCO staff, combined with all the cans from the bowling event, were gathered together and gratefully received by the Hereford Food Bank later in the day.
The Hereford Food Bank has been functioning since 2008, and is now a registered charity. It operates with a small group of dedicated volunteers and one part-time officer with almost all the food donated by local people - both individuals and businesses.
Any donation of food or monetary gifts are appreciated - can you help? Visit www.herefordfoodbank.co.uk to find out more.
