Lake District donations from Preston Baker
Following Storm Desmond and the chaos across the Lake District, two of our staff drove from Leeds to Cumbria on Tuesday 15th December to drop off a collection the whole team got involved with.
Claire Lowcock, the Moortown Branch Manager, along with Ann Booker, the admin manager, organised the collection that included food, drink, pet food, baby clothes/food/nappies, clothes and shoes for adults along with Christmas presents.
Claire said: "Many families lost everything. Being so close to Christmas it made us feel thankful for everything we have so we decided we should give something back.
"Ann and I contacted the Marchesi Centre in Windermere and met the lovely Bridget Wood who was coordinating all this herself."
Bridget said: "Thank you all so so much for all your generous donations we were quite overwhelmed! We were taken aback from where you came from and the sheer generosity of the Preston Baker team."
