A welcoming visit to the Funeral Directors

funeralWe are very excited to be having ever increasing opportunities to work with local business that want to get involved with raising awareness and funds, and collect items for the Brighton Food Bank.

In the last year, we have formed fresh new partnerships with banks, supermarkets, office blocks and call centres, and many smaller businesses, including plumbing firms and nurseries.

grosvenorsThe most resent partnership is with Funeral Directors across our city. Many of them have welcomed our literature on ‘Leaving a Lasting Legacy’, as an increasing number of people are supporting local charities financially, instead of spending money on traditional flowers at the funeral of their loved ones. We are particularly thankful to Dignity Funeral Directors who have given us four shop windows to decorate throughout December and January, and Attree and Kent Funeral Directors who have welcomed us to display our Food Bank publicity, including flyers, a banner, a food bank bin, and bunting, in two of their shop windows. So keep you eye out for all six windows across Brighton and Hove during this festive season.

We caught up with Michael, the Funeral Director at Grosvenor Funeral Directors, part of the Dignity group:

“It means a lot to us that we can support the Brighton Food bank over the holidays.  The City Mission is doing excellent work feeding the hungry in Brighton and Hove. Alas, the need is never greater than it is over the Christmas period and New Year. It’s our privilege to be able to collect foodstuffs for you and I want to thank you for helping us to make a difference. We’re constantly looking for ways to support the community we serve, and your work makes a real difference in the lives of so many in Brighton and Hove. Please be assured of our continued support.”
