MK Dons Sport and Education Trust and Suzuki GB staff and volunteers battled the elements on Wednesday to deliver 100 Christmas boxes to 100 families across Milton Keynes.
Title Partners Suzuki, who recently extended their association with the Football Club, sponsored 100 boxes which were provided to 100 families on Wednesday, containing all the ingredients for Christmas Dinner as well as family games and much, much more.
Volunteers from across Suzuki and the Stadium MK group, including the MK Dons first-team squad, all came together to pack and deliver the boxes in time for Christmas.
MK Dons SET Chief Executive Maralyn Smith said: “MK Dons SET is overwhelmed with the support from our key sponsor Suzuki, who have agreed to work in partnership with us to provide 100 families with a Christmas dinner this year.
“We at the SET want to share our Christmas with families across Milton Keynes, and with the support of Suzuki, we now hope to be able to spread a little happiness at the end of a difficult year for everyone.”
Nobuo Suyama, Managing Director Suzuki GB PLC, commented: “We are delighted and proud to be working closely with MK Dons Sports Education Trust and local charities this Christmas with the ‘100 Boxes for 100 families’ initiative.
“We hope it will make a real difference to their festive season in being able to have a full Christmas meal and enjoy a family board game too with our compliments, particularly after such a challenging year with the pandemic adding difficulties for so many.
“Suzuki has been based in Milton Keynes for over 15 years and we are very pleased to again reach out to local people outside our business and spread some Christmas goodwill along the way.
“A very Merry Christmas from us all at Suzuki and here’s to a safe and prosperous 2021.”
MK Dons Sport and Education Trust would like to thank everyone who has played their part in the initiative, including all the volunteers that came down and delivered the boxes.
