The Benevolent Society has announced that it has identified up to 50 beneficiaries to be the recipients of a hamper filled with edible goods.
In a newly-released statement, the society said: “With all of the talk of Worldwide pandemic, economic disaster, job losses, the NHS being overwhelmed, it is important that we do not forget those that have gone before us and contributed so much to making our great Industries’ what they are today.
“The Benevolent Society were therefore delighted to identify up to 50 of their hardest up and longest standing Beneficiaries and to send to each of them this week a beautiful hamper full of goodies as a timely reminder that they have not been forgotten.”
Simon Dawe, chairman of the society, added: “It has given all of our trustees real pleasure to be able to arrange to have these wonderful hampers hand delivered to those most vulnerable amongst our beneficiaries.”
The BenSoc vice chairman, David Doyle, said: “We hope that the recipients of these wonderful hampers, who are generally much older and often not in the best of health, will enjoy the treats within.
“We hope that they will accept them on behalf of all of the Industries’ that BenSoc represents as a huge thank you for all that they did in their day. We are thinking of them all too in these difficult times.”
