MK Dons SET deliver Christmas hampers across MK community

22 December 2022

MK Dons Sport and Education Trust (SET), and a number of local partners, came together this week to provide Christmas hampers for 1,800 people across the Milton Keynes community.

Last year, 250 Christmas hampers were delivered to those in need in the city but this festive period has seen that number increased to 300 - enough to provide food and resources to 1,800 people to last over the course of a week, in what is a tough time of year for everyone.

The support from partners, and kind donations from members of the public has helped to provide a luxury pack of food supplies, as well as a gift card where families can purchase their own food to further support across the most difficult week between Christmas and New Year.

Volunteers and donations from Suzuki GB, Marshall Amplification (The Jim Marshall Charitable Trust), Yamaha, Brioche Pasquier, The Roofing Centre, Clearview Intelligence, MIRKA, MKDSA, The Perkins and Loughtons families (Andy, Rachel, Freya, Neve, Lesley and Norm), Climb Quest, Collaborate MK, MD Govier Electrical and Reedbut will provide valuable resources to those in need.

MK Dons’ title partners, Suzuki GB, supported physically with volunteers, as well as utilising Suzuki cars and bikes to distribute boxes. Suzuki GB Director Martin Lloyd commented: “Our employees and company have immense pride to be involved once again and support."

Maralyn Smith, Chief Executive of MK Dons SET said: “Once again SET are overwhelmed with people’s generosity both in funds, time and willingness to get involved in delivering the boxes.”
