Leading Caribbean food and drink supplier Grace Foods UK has raised £10,000 for the African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust (ACLT), with the help of its retail customers.
The company donated one penny from every case of Grace-branded products sold by its subsidiary company Enco Products, as part of its annual ‘Penny Pledge’ fund-raising campaign
“I can’t thank our customers enough as every case of product they bought resulted in money being donated to a really worthwhile cause,” said Ryan Mack, Managing Director for Grace Foods UK.”
The ACLT was established in 1996 to raise awareness about the importance of black and minority ethnic (BME) individuals registering as potential blood, bone marrow and organ (BBO) donors to enable worldwide donor searches on behalf of black, mixed race and ethnic minority patients. The charity’s aim is to accelerate the saving of more lives within the BME community.
“Funds such as those raised by Grace Foods’ Penny Pledge campaign are vital in allowing us to continue raising awareness and holding recruitment drives to register BBO donors,” says Orin Lewis, OBE, co-founder and Chief Executive of the ACLT.
