Telford Crisis

Whittan supports neighbouring food bank with shelving donation

As the UK’s leading storage manufacturer, here at Whittan we pride ourselves on supporting our community. With our head office in Halesfield, Telford, we recently helped a neighbour out when they were in need of a new storage system.

Telford Crisis Support was formed back in 2013 and received charitable status shortly after. In 2021 alone, they provided approximately 121,000 meals for individuals and families in the community.

Telford Crisis Support soon recognised the need for a new facility, and the Telford & Wrekin Baby and Toddler Bank was then launched in January 2020, which has since supported over 100 families.

Both the foodbank and babybank operate from Halesfield where they distribute and deliver across the borough of Telford and Wrekin.

"No one in the borough of Telford and Wrekin should need to go without the basic essentials to keep themselves and their families sheltered, fed, clean, clothed, warm and healthy," said Simon Lellow, Operations Manager at Telford Crisis Support.

As you can probably imagine, these last couple of years have taken their toll on the community and the Crisis Support centre alike. As a result, we were more than happy to help them out with a shelving solution for their storage and parcel preparation area in their new building.

“Last year was extremely challenging for our community, we experienced a huge uplift in the need for our services and had to locate to a new larger building to facilitate the growing requirement. The shelving provided by Whittan has allowed us to set-up a safe, accessible and practicable storage and parcel preparation set-up in our new building. The shelving has allowed us to operate in a timelier manner when preparing parcels for customers and has improved the working environment for our volunteers and staff immensely.

“It was relatively straightforward to assemble and put together the shelving. We chose the size to give us freestanding stability and put the shelves together back-to-back and side-to-side to provide a central island of storage which is working very well for us and making our job much easier to do.”

Simon concluded by saying, “Thank you very much for your generosity. The product is first class, robust, easy to assemble and will serve us well. I would definitely recommend Whittan and their excellent products, communication and service.”
