Brook Food Processing Equipment is marking its 25th anniversary this year by making 12 charitable donations.

The equipment supplier has a host of celebratory activities planned throughout 2019, including making a £25 charity donation for every customer order over £1,000 that month.

Brook said if January was anything to go by, it could donate around £20,000 over the year.

January’s donation was £1,525 that went to local charity St Margaret’s Hospice, which provides high-quality responsive care to patients and their families facing life-limiting illness.

Brook’s marketing director Ann Wells met with Sadie Ellison from St Margaret’s Hospice to present her and three of the nurses from the hospice with the cheque.

 “It’s an absolute honour to donate this money to St Margaret’s, they are all amazing people and doing something wonderful,” said Wells. “The care and compassion shown across the services they offer to our community is admirable.”
