The Pink Link Ltd Make A Difference With Foundation Donation
Huddersfield based palletised distribution specialist, The Pink Link Ltd, has recently donated a four figure sum to Yorkshire Charity, The Huddersfield Town Foundation.
The Town Foundation serves breakfasts to hundreds of school children across Yorkshire every week, and since its launch in July 2012 the Foundation has served nearly 100,000 breakfasts.
The Pink Link Ltd donated £6,000 to the charity with funds raised from its 2013 Pink October Ball, these funds will ensure that healthy and nutritious breakfasts continue to be available daily through the Town Foundation’s ‘Early Kick-off’ breakfast club initiative.
Mandy Taylor, Corporate Fundraising Officer at The Huddersfield Town Foundation, commented: “On behalf of our founder, Dean Hoyle, the Board of Trustees and most importantly; the thousands of children and their families that we serve, I wish to express our sincere thanks to the Pink Link team for this most significant and valued donation. We look forward to working with the Pink Link and sharing our experiences and showcasing our community spirit with them.”
Beverley Shelton and Vicki Davenport of The Pink Link Ltd presented Mandy Taylor from the Huddersfield Town Foundation with the £6,000 cheque at the Foundation’s annual Ladies Lunch event, which took place at The John Smith’s Stadium last November.
Vicki Davenport commented: “The Pink Link are honoured and delighted to have donated to The Town Foundation and are looking forward to getting involved in a breakfast club visit and seeing the impact the Foundation has had on the children. I am sure Pinky Lynx, our company mascot, will be popular with the children!
“In the past most of our fundraising has been involved with cancer charities, but we wanted to get involved with the local community and having seen the wonderful work and results the Town Foundation has achieved it was an easy decision.”
