Sweet Treats Bring Easter Smiles to Many

29 April 2022

FFT’s 20th anniversary Twenty for Twenty Charity and Social Value theme, headed by ambassadors Lynn Bekir and Adam Keys, recently saw us join forces with a number of clients to deliver sweet treats to vulnerable families over Easter.

A share of our 1000 Easter sweet cones, packed with tasty treats, winged their way to children from vulnerable families in collaboration with care support and housing charity Look Ahead, G15 housing provider Optivo, and Riverside School Orpington.

Further cones were distributed to community centres across the London, Kent and Sussex areas and used as Easter hunt prizes for children, as well as a bonding activity for families.

The remainder of the sweet cones were donated to the Royal British Legion armed forces charity RBLI. These were be handed to veterans as a welcome gift as they arrived at their new shelter in Maidstone, Kent. In return, RBLI kindly gave us a batch of branded t-shirts which we went on to donate to a number of charities across the South East. Some of these were homeless charities who were, as ever, in great need of warm, clean clothes.

Twenty for Twenty Charity and Social Value theme ambassador Lynn Bekir said, “As ever, we are delighted to support our clients by reaching out to the areas of their communities that need the most help. The ‘naughty but nice’ Easter treats went down really well with everyone who received them and it’s good to know that we’ve been able to indirectly provide much needed clothing for homeless charities too.”

Eva Zeeb Head of Philanthropy and Partnerships at Look Ahead said “ I wanted to say a huge thank you for the Easter goodies. They were very well received and certainly brightened up the Easter weekend for many of the children and young people in our services.”
