Soreen donates snacks to support key workers tackling coronavirus
Having established itself in Britain over eight decades ago, Soreen, the British Malt Loaf maker, has shown its appreciation for NHS staff and other key workers during the coronavirus pandemic in donating a series of its snacks to staff.
The Manchester-based company have teamed up with Checkout Smart to offer NHS staff and key workers at the front lines of the coronavirus thousands of free products from its snacking range.
NHS staff, key workers or people on behalf of those workers can visit: www.checkoutsmart.com/soreen, enter their details and redeem Soreen products free of charge.
Mark Simester, MD at Soreen said: “It’s been a challenging time for everyone, and we want to ensure that we are doing what we can to support those who need us most. We’re working hard to get food on the shelves, and support the NHS, key workers, food banks and charities.
“Our gratitude goes out to doctors, nurses, police, fire services, teachers and delivery drivers – everyone who is risking their own health and wellbeing under unprecedented circumstances – cannot be understated. We all owe them our wholehearted thanks.
“We’ve donated thousands of our snacks to NHS workers as a way of showing our thanks for their tireless work. We hope these provide them with a much-needed boost to help fuel them throughout their challenging days.”
Other charities that the business continues to support include; the NHS Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust and The Bread & Butter Thing. Furthermore, the firm donated Lunchbox Loaves, a much-loved snack enjoyed by children and families in particular that come in malt, strawberry, banana and apple flavours, along with Soreen’s pre-buttered slices, to NHS staff at the Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust.
The Bread and Butter Thing (TBBT), a charity that makes life more affordable for people on a low income by offering deeply discounted food also received over 9,000 units of the company’s pre-buttered slices.
In addition, the company’s pre-buttered slices also fuelled thousands at the opening of the NHS Nightingale Hospital in London, as well as Salford Royal hospital last month. Malt Loaf supplies were gratefully received by Hotel Football in Manchester, where Co-Owners, Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs, re-opened their facilities specially to provide free use of their rooms to health workers during the pandemic. Soreen will continue to donate to local charities and hospitals across Greater Manchester including the NSPCC.
