The last year saw GroceryAid support more colleagues than ever before and we take great pride in that achievement. As we look forward, Covid-19 has had a huge impact on the nation and on our trade. We expect rising demand for our services, and we are geared up to help colleagues who need assistance from GroceryAid.
We helped over 17,000 grocery colleagues in the past 12 months, and we remain humbled by the feedback we get from beneficiaries - this inspires all of us in GroceryAid every day.
I became President at the start of 2020 succeeding Andrew Higginson. I want to say a huge thank you to Andrew for his commitment and contribution to the charity over two and a half years as President.
In 2020, our colleagues have done an incredible job sustaining the nation through the pandemic. These have been deeply worrying times for many and I am proud that GroceryAid has been able to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with colleagues as we have done over the past 163 years.
