RSK Acoustics helps to combat food poverty in Manchester

February 09, 2021

RSK Acoustics has encouraged members of its team to sign up to a new initiative to help combat food poverty. During the past few months, members from different RSK office locations were asked to get involved in the Mustard Tree’s Christmas Crate Campaign. Mustard Tree is a charity that tackles both the causes and consequences of poverty in Greater Manchester, UK.

Around 600,000 people in Greater Manchester live in poverty; an estimated 137,000 of these people are in work and 91,000 are children. Mustard Tree helps to combat poverty and prevent homelessness through a range of initiatives, such as providing low cost furniture and food for individuals and families facing financial hardship. The work of charities such as Mustard Tree is now more significant than ever before, as the pandemic has proved especially difficult for the homeless community.

For the Christmas Crate Campaign, RSK Acoustics filled up crates with much needed items such as tinned food, cereals, fish, bread, gluten free items and tea bags. Big support was also shown by the children of RSK team members, who willingly donated many of their toys to help make people’s Christmas.
