Bestway Wholesale has formed a partnership with the Plunkett Foundation, a charity that supports communities across the UK to set up and run community businesses.
Bestway’s support will include participation in a dedicated advisory panel that will allow Plunkett’s members to access expert business advice from Bestway team members.
There will also be fundraising activities at key events such as the Bestway Retail Development Awards and joint campaigns that celebrate the role that retail and hospitality play in local rural community life.
Bestway’s managing director Dawood Pervez said: “The value of shopping local within communities has never been evidenced as strongly as in today’s cost-of-living crisis and we are pleased to be working closely with the Plunkett Foundation in supporting community businesses as they meet ongoing supply chain issues.”
The new partnership follows Bestway’s support of the Plunkett Foundation’s Christmas campaigns in 2021 and 2022.
Bestway has also announced that in 2022, it donated over 2941kg of UHT potato plant-based milk – equivalent to over 7,000 meals – to The Felix Project, a charity that uses surplus food to help people in poverty and need, living in London.
Pervez commented: “We continue to support this wonderful charity because we know it will help many other charities across London right in the communities that Bestway serves. Frighteningly, 400,000 children go hungry every day and we need to do everything we can to help make this change.”
