Last year was an exceptional year as Covid-19 affected every individual throughout the UK. Our trade did an incredible job illustrated through the film “Grocery feeds the nation” and I am proud that GroceryAid stood shoulder-to-shoulder with grocery colleagues throughout the pandemic.
We anticipated rising demand for our services and were able to provide assistance to record numbers reaching out for support. This was possible as a result of the generosity of the trade in backing the charity through an extraordinarily difficult period.
After a testing period for all of us, we hope the future is less threatening. This has been one of the biggest challenges the trade charity has faced in its 164 year history and the following report demonstrates how we were able to accelerate our support available to colleagues when it mattered most.
Thank you to all who made this possible across the trade.
