Going for gold with GroceryAid

Sewell on the go is proud to have been awarded a gold GroceryAid award, recognising our backing for this amazing cause.

GroceryAid has been providing emotional, practical and financial support for grocery people since 1857, and they support people who work, or have worked, in the grocery industry. As well as a helpline which provides emotional and practical support 24/7, 365 days a year, the charity also helps with financial grants, counselling and supporting people through life’s challenges.

To win gold, alongside prestigious international companies such as Asda, Coca Cola and Marks & Spencer, we undertook activities across GroceryAid’s three pillars of awareness, fundraising and volunteering.

This included promoting GroceryAid’s support at our internal events, taking part in GroceryAid Day, fundraising for the charity, focused learning and development groups for our staff, and being an active contributor to the GroceryAid Awareness Network.

Operations Manager, Kate Barbour, from Sewell on the go said it was an honour to be recognised as contributing to GroceryAid’s aims.

“We’ve got so many fantastic, passionate and enthusiastic people in our team, and it’s vital that we make sure they’re supported through whatever life throws at them. GroceryAid is a fantastic resource to provide support for everyone throughout the industry, and we’re really pleased to be able to offer our support to help them continue their great work. Our support doesn’t stop here, as we’re already planning new initiatives in 2024 to make sure GroceryAid’s support is always available for our team.”
