Evo Promotions Comment On Charity In Business
In these austere times, when we're all counting every penny in our pockets, it's often the case that we start to do less for charity
Georgina Smith, Managing Director of Evo Promotions said, “We're a young company, and we strive to innovate, and of course to increase our own market share, but it's not all about making money. Our company is currently focused on the charity sector. It's an area we're passionate about, because we get to help our local community, as well as international charities, while growing our business. There's a real sense of pride in working for charities.”
One of the biggest issues in times of recession, is that a lot of the relevant charities, such as those helping out with poverty, or homelessness, are under increased pressure, but operating with reduced donations. This is why it's even more important as we all work to move out of financial difficulties, to keep up charitable work. Fareshare, a charity which redirects food trade surpluses to those in need, recently said they were struggling to meet demands, and had to slash food budgets to stay afloat, at the same time as they were facing government funding cuts.
Fareshare chief executive Lindsay Boswell said: “At a time of unprecedented demand we want the food industry and the general public to increase their support. We're committed to working with grassroots charities to make a significant difference to the diets of people in communities all over the UK but we need more food to meet this increased demand.”
“We hope that people will increase their efforts,” said Ms Smith from Evo Promotions, “This is the wrong time to forget about those worse off. We'd love to see any business who is able to help out in the charity sector, increasing their efforts even a little. With the thousands of businesses in the UK it all adds up, and we have a real chance to help a lot of people.”
