Story


You can too.

This year has been tough for everyone, however, the pandemic has affected the most vulnerable in our society most strongly. Mustard Tree has noted that in covering demand, their food costs have increased from £4,000 a month, to £6,500 a week. 

Insight Recruitment has pledged to support Mustard Tree to help in the fight against poverty. 

No one should go hungry this winter.

WHAT INSIGHT WILL BE DOING TO HELP MUSTARD TREE:

- Weekly food collections
- Filling crates for Christmas
- Promoting the Mustard Tree cause through our network
- Special campaigns...

OUR CAMPAIGNS:

INSIGHT ACTIVE CLUB

Rather than slowing down in the lead up to Christmas - it's fitness at the ready! Our consultants will be embracing activity,  running, walking & cycling with the collective goal of getting to Lapland by Friday 18 December (2091km).

TRADE A DRINK FOR A WARM MEAL

We will be encouraging individuals to donate the cost of a coffee to help in the provision of a warm meal.

Also, at a business level, while we can't celebrate the week's end, group incentives, or festive parties, we can come together in a different way. We're asking business to contribute part of their party budgets to help the vulnerable - trading work drinks for warm meals.
