Artisan biscuits donated to NHS workers

Shropshire based artisan biscuit producers Original Biscuit Bakers have donated thousands of artisan, hand decorated gingerbread biscuits to NHS workers, the homeless & those in food poverty.

The company creates high-quality and award-winning gingerbread novelties and gifts, and they donated their products via food re-distributors, City Harvest, in London, and the Market Drayton Foodbank.

They have also donated to staff and patients at the Royal Stoke University Hospital via the UHNM Charity - University Hospital of North Midlands Charity.

Sales and marketing director of Original Biscuit Bakers, Sarah Hopcroft, said: ‘’Due to the current health crisis, our stock levels were high and we could see an opportunity to donate to worthy causes both locally and further afield.

"We are absolutely delighted to have donated our biscuits to those who are desperately in need via three fantastic charities.  We really hope our delightful and lovingly-produced biscuits brought cheer and joy to those on the front line, those struggling with homelessness and also food poverty in such turbulent and difficult times. 

"I am extremely grateful to the amazing City Harvest London, Market Drayton Foodbank and University Hospital  of North Midlands Charity for organising the re-distribution of what would otherwise be surplus goods.’’

CEO of City Harvest, Laura Winningham, said: ‘’We are a non-profit surplus food redistribution charity who deliver for free to those in need.  

"Covid-19 means now, more than ever, our City Harvest vans are needed on the roads delivering food to charities across London who are preparing food parcels for vulnerable groups including NHS workers on the front line."
