Colleagues from the only Yorkshire Pudding manufacturer in Leeds, Greencore, have once again donated hundreds of Easter eggs to young people in the local area.
The Hunslet-based manufacturer has created somewhat of a tradition in working to support the local community, and this year Greencore Leeds has donated 550 Easter eggs to young people at Hunslet Carr and Broomfield Primary Schools, as well as Hunslet Club, a local organisation that has been helping young people in South Leeds to achieve their full potential for over 80 years.
Commenting on the donation, Robert Graham, General Manager at Greencore Leeds said:
“We have a long history of producing Yorkshire Puddings at this site, from its origins as Robert’s Foods, through to the Greencore acquisition 21 years ago, and through the years we have employed many people from the local community. We are acutely aware of the role we play in the community and we are delighted to be able to do this. We started this tradition six years ago and feel that that this year, more than ever, it is important to help bring a smile to the face of hundreds of young people”.
A spokesperson at Hunslet Club said;
“Greencore have kindly donated Easter eggs for a number of years now, which means as a club we can give back to the children by presenting them with an egg after their sessions. What child doesn’t smile when they receive an Easter Egg?”
