Christmas cheer has been flooding in at John Turner Construction with the in-house charity group, TLC, raising over £3,300 after holding a festive raffle.

TLC is collaborating with a local food retailer to provide The Trussell Trust with foodbank donations from the funds raised. Supporting foodbanks in the north west, which is where John Turner’s offices are located, items will be purchased and delivered to The Trussell Trust’s foodbanks.

The employee led charity group’s raffle created a huge interest with some fabulous prizes ranging from festive food and drink hampers, LED Smart TVs, PS4s, Xbox, MacBook Pro, Bose Bluetooth Hifi system, Signed Everton Football shirt, Liverpool Football Club VIP hospitality tickets, Ipad, Karcher pressure washer, Fitbit Blaze Smart Watch, Nintendo DS, tool bag with 66 piece tool set, theatre tickets and dinner and commission for a pet portrait.

Prizes have been donated by a number of our clients and members of our supply chain, to whom we are extremely grateful.

Running a network of foodbanks, The Trussell Trust gives emergency food and support to people in crisis, where thirteen million people live below the poverty line. In the last year 1,182,954 three day emergency food supplies were given to people in crisis across the UK.

Foodbank donations will be purchased and distributed to The Trussell Trust in January 2018.

Big thanks go out to everyone who has been involved in the organisation of the raffle, donation of raffle prizes and the purchase of tickets.
