Bridgend-based M&M Catering Equipment has assisted a local homelessness charity, Emmaus South Wales, through the coronavirus crisis.
The dealer has loaned a chest freezer to store the perishable food that the nearby Sainsbury’s café and Greggs have donated to the charity prior to their closure.
Emmaus South Wales shut its five charity shops in Bridgend and the Vale of Glamorgan following the government’s lockdown announcement on 23 March.
Jemma Wray, chief executive at Emmaus South Wales, told local website, News from Wales: “It has been increasingly difficult to find everything we need in local supermarkets, especially for the amount of people we are supporting. That is why we are so grateful for the donations from Sainsbury’s café at McArthur Glen and the Adare Street Greggs.
“On behalf of everyone at Emmaus South Wales, I would like to say thank you to both businesses as well as Steve Morris, managing director at M&M Catering Equipment, for lending us a chest freezer to store the food. It is very much appreciated, especially in uncertain times like these.”
