apetito’s Staff Foundation donates thousands of pounds to local sports clubs.
apetito is the largest employer in Trowbridge, Wiltshire and strongly believes in giving back to the community, as well as supporting the friends and family of its employees. That’s why over the last year its Staff Foundation has given £3500 to local sports teams in and around Trowbridge explains Foundation’ member, Katie Oliver.
“We always want to give back to our community, so as a Staff Foundation we provide grants throughout the year to activities and clubs our co-workers are involved in. We’re delighted that we’ve been able to support so many local clubs.”
The Staff Foundation is a committee run by apetito employees and is set up to donate funds to causes and groups that are important to its colleagues.
From donating money for new sports kit, equipment to a defibrillator, over the last year apetito has supported Trowbridge Swimming Club, Trowbridge Town Bowls Club, Avon Valley Runners, Trowbridge Rugby Club, Trowbridge Social Netball Team, Trowbridge Flames Basketball Team and the Winsley Cricket Club.
Julie from apetito’s Finance team applied for money to pay for new balls, bibs, bags and a first aid kit for Trowbridge Social Netball Team. Having this equipment will make a real difference explained Julie:
“The funds from the Staff Foundation means that we no longer rely on other teams for kit and can go forward independently. We’ve now purchased the bibs, balls and other kit and everyone is delighted”.
Liam from apetito’s Development team applied for funding for his daughter’s Trowbridge rugby team, which was able to get brand new kit for all the players.
“All the coaches, parents and players were very grateful for this helping hand - it has helped massively to get the whole squad to have the same match and training kit.”
