WORKERS at Beverley-based holiday home manufacturer ABI have donated more than £6,000 to support local families affected by the cost-of-living crisis. The money will be donated to the town’s Cherry Tree Community Centre and used to buy Christmas food parcels for more than 400 families in Beverley. The packages consist of a whole chicken, stuffing, gravy, carrots, potatoes, sprouts, as well as mince pies, Christmas pudding and custard.

Cherry Tree Manager Jo Ramsay told Beverley FM: “We’re absolutely over the moon to be able to support so many local families this Christmas, thanks to ABI’s generous donation. The work we do is crucial to our community year-round effort, but the festive period is particularly important for us. Nobody should go hungry on Christmas Day”.

Richard Jones, CEO at ABI, based in Swinemoor Lane, Beverley, said: “At ABI, we believe the little things matter. I am so proud of every member of our business that has once again come forward to support this charity, which will make a big difference to so many families this Christmas”.
