In early 2019 our employees voted to support Giddo’s Gift as KK’s Charity of the Year. Giddo’s Gift is a local charity, set up in memory of Jordan Giddins, and aims to help improve the lives of teenagers and young adults suffering with cancer within Wales and North West England through gifts and grants.
Throughout 2019 our employees have taken part in numerous activities, including Tough Mudder, bingo nights, cake sales and raffles to raise a total of ￡5,500 for the charity. We are thrilled to announce that for 2020 KK employees have voted to continue to support Giddo’s Gift and we look forward to another year of raising money for such a worthy cause.
A spokesman for the charity said: “A huge thank you to everyone at KK Fine Foods Deeside, they chose us as their Charity of the year 2019 and have raised an incredible ￡5,500 through lots of fundraising events. I was thrilled to be told today that they have voted to support us again this year, especially when we went up against 4 other very worthy Charities. The local support we receive is overwhelming and enables us to help so many young people in Jordan’s Memory, he will certainly be smiling down on us tonight. Thank you all so very, very much.”
Samir Edwards, Managing Director of KK said: “Every one of our employees have been fully behind supporting Giddo’s Gift and we have all had lots of fun along the way, it’s been nice seeing how everyone has pulled together to raise funds for the charity. We look forward to supporting Giddo’s for the year ahead, hoping we can smash our previous year’s total of ￡5,500.”
