IT’S PIE WEEK AT BRIGHTSTORE THANKS TO HIGGIDY!
BrightStore members in Hollingdean and Hove have been enjoying a warming winter treat in their shop this week thanks to a donation of delicious pies from Higgidy.
The company, based in Shoreham, donated 180 pies to BrightStore including their new sharing pies (just in time for Valentines Day!) as part of their Helping Hand initiative which they set up at the start of the Coronavirus pandemic last March to support food charities across Sussex.
Over 35,000 meals were provided in the first six months of the project with thousands more provided since then to help feed those in need during pandemic. BrightStore is one of a number of local projects to benefit from donations as part of Helping Hand over the next six weeks.
Higgidy have a strong track record of supporting community food projects and have supported Fareshare, the national organisation who deliver surplus food that would otherwise go to waste to thousands of food charities including BrightStore, since 2003.
Managing Director, Mark Campbell said:
“BrightStore is a brilliant project and a great example of what can be achieved in Brighton and Hove when people come together and think creatively about some of the problems we face and how we can solve them collectively. It's fantastic to see how far BrightStore has come already.
We’re pleased to be able to support brilliant projects like this through our Higgidy Helping Hand project which we set up during the pandemic and it’s great to see so many communities coming together through food.”
BrightStore Hollingdean member and volunteer Kat Addis was one of many happy customers this week:
“The pies were amazing and it was such a treat to have them in our shopping this week especially in the cold weather. It’s fantastic to see local companies like Higgidy helping to feed local communities during what are tough times for a lot of people.”
